I believe the offence still stands, but that the relevant Cheif Constable has discretion on it's policing. As most of them are now stampted out clones from University, they not only do not understand what normal people want and expect from the force for which they pay, they have been taught to loathe the same people's values. I know a couple of policemen, both mid forties, and they now hate their job and the people who they answer to. Morale is underground. This is a very bad thing for civic society and it will not end well. The Force, as with most institutions, has been taken over by zealous, sometimes far left, intolerant, arrogant and patronising bigots. This is why nothing changes in the way most "normal", people would like.
