Like the poor, little Greek boy, I agree that this is very silly, but for me there is one very significant sentence. [Emphasis mine.]
In court, Mr Maigel, 28, then a student at Stirling Uni, said: "The driver came alongside and was trying to annoy us by revving his engine very, very loudly." Using an interpreter, Hana Saad, [Mr Maigel's wife] 23, said he had degraded them "maybe because we are Muslim".

Using an interpreter? Why? How does she carry on day to day life if she cannot speak English? And why does she not speak English since, as far as I can glean from the article, she has been here for a few years?

Just how many "stupid pills" have people been taking?

Apart from apply George Orwells 1984 to 'justice' they seem to also be using Monty Pythons Big Red Book, oddly enough, also published in 1984...

Next crime will be 'walking in a funny and racist manner', or,

'I thought I heard him possibly racially abuse someone who, well, hasn't actually complained, as such'.

Hold on..

Amazing a racist engine, or is it a racing engine? And their just happened to be a off-duty Chief Inspector Eoin Jenkins there at that precise moment. Amazing!!!

Most likely the Libyan is a "student" and his wife is a "student dependant" so it isn't entirely unreasonable that she doesn't speak English. Especially given the way many muslims treat their wives. What is outrageous is the money wasted by politically correct morons on the cps. How much for example did the interpreter get paid for this?
