This case is worrying. On the first time that new legislation was used, the police & CPS got it wrong -- this does not inspire confidence in the authorities at a time when government has given them unprecedented powers & the police have already been accused of acting excessively.
The wrongful conviction of a woman under the wrong law very much proves the point @davidallengreen was making in this clip. The new laws are needed but they also need to be precise and well understood by the public and police officers https://overcast.fm/+UV0JFjxvQ/1:00:42 https://twitter.com/AdamWagner1/status/1245787944092405760
