By making misogyny a crime, we are sleepwalking into tyranny

Should it be a crime to hate women? This unfortunate question is thrown up by the news that misogyny might soon become a hate crime across England and Wales.

Now top coppers from across the country are looking into criminalising misogyny elsewhere.
