Mr Fraser is now threatening legal action against Police Scotland to have the incident deleted and its hate crime policy updated, with the support of the Free Speech Union (FSU). He said: “Police Scotland has behaved not just outrageously, but unlawfully according to the legal advice obtained by the Free Speech Union. This is Police Scotland attacking free speech – but it is more sinister than that. My tweet wasn’t pointing a finger at an individual – it was critical of a Scottish Government policy.”
