UK town Rochdale considers ban in ‘swearing’

Published

on

LONDON — A town of Rochdale in England has proposed to ban swearing and other kinds of anti-social behavior in the city center.

Rochdale borough council plans to introduce a public spaces protection order that would subject anyone caught “using foul and abusive language” to a warning, fine or removal from the area, UPI reported.

People caught “using foul and abusive language,” begging, loitering and taking part in other similar behaviors could be warned, removed from the area or fined.

Council leader Richard Farnell said the ban was necessary to prevent a “small minority” — including people who are publicly drinking — from ruining the town center for other visitors.

The measure would also potentially ban begging, loitering, antisocial parking, playing loud music, loudly revving car engines, street drinking, unauthorized charity collections and skateboarding, in addition to barring people under the age of 18 from the town center between 11 pm and 6 am

Lauren Canten, a legal officer for human rights campaign group Liberty, however opposed the swearing ban and described it as a staggering misuse of power.

“These proposals would unjustifiably curb the rights and freedoms of Rochdale residents,” Canten said.

“The swearing ban is so vaguely defined, it would prove impossible for anyone to know whether they were breaking the law or not, while a blanket ban on begging will criminalize some of the most vulnerable people in the town.”

PYONG YANG — North Korea has claimed that its leader Kim Jong-un can control the weather after he apparently went on leisurely summit of a 9,000ft mountain.

After releasing images this weekend of a smiling Kim on top of Mount Paektu, an active volcano on the China and North Korea border, the state-controlled Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said the ‘peerlessly illustrious commander’ can control ‘the nature.’

Mount Paektu is normally a wintry mess in December, as per the news agency, but during Kim’s visit, it was a ‘marvelous scene with glee at the reappearance of its great master.’ When Kim ascended to the top, the mountain showed ‘fine weather unprecedented.’

In the picture, Kim was seen wandering around under clear blue skies on Mount Paektu near the border with China — having apparently scaled it in shiny black shoes and formal clothing.

His achievement was lauded by the KCNA which also claimed the fine weather was a result of the chubby 33-year-old’s ability to control the weather.
