BNP candidate walks free from court

It looks like Sion Owens and his partner Joanne Shannon are off the hook as far as burning the Koran is concerned. Swansea police planned to prosecute this act under race relations laws, until it belatedly occurred to them that "Islam" isn't a race, it's a religion.

So Sion and Joanne are free again, after a night in cells with walls smeared with fecal matter. The police have retained their computers and mobile phones. Why? Heaven knows, possibly in the hope that they will find something incriminating, but certainly not to thwart Sion's attempts to become a member of the Welsh Assembly.
