As the General Secretary of the Free Speech Union, I’ve been campaigning against the recording of “non-crime hate incidents” by the police for three years so I’m delighted the Home Secretary has produced this draft guidance. She hasn’t done away with the practice altogether, but if the police follow her advice to use their common sense and have due regard to the right to freedom of expression before recording an NCHI this is a huge win.
