Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Hate is not a crime. It is a natural instinctual emotion. If that hate gets translated into actions, that is a crime.

"Any utterance" is too broad.

Would someone who has not been deterred by existing law from killing a black or muslim be deterred from talking about such acts by more laws? He is not afraid of the consequences of killing, but is afraid of the consequences of talking? I don't think so. It sounds like a reckless political stunt on Blair's part.
