Put on trial for sarcasm: Man who was prosecuted with the help of counter-terror experts is cleared by jury

England has gone mad.

A 25-year-old man who was prosecuted with the help of counter-terror experts was cleared by a jury in just one hour over his ‘satirical’ Facebook post where he called for ‘national batter gypos day’.

After he was cleared of inciting racial hatred Joshua North, from Cleethorpes, blasted the decision to prosecute him as ‘political correctness gone mad’.

He said: ‘I told the police, if you check all my other Facebook posts, it indicates that I’m very friendly to immigrants, other races and religions.’
