Probably comes under an obscenity law. It's not that the target is Johnson but the word could be offensive on public display.

Probably won't be such a law in 100 years time but there are a generation of people who would find the t-shirt offensive..

Seems a bit OTT to me for the police to get involved with a girl with a rude word on her t-shirt. Particularly when on the way back from a protest march.

What would they do if hundreds were wearing that t-shirt?

If there were hundreds wearing that T-shirt on a march I guess they wouldn't be offending each other - while they were on the march. But if each one then went off to a local Conservative club then they would encounter other people who would find it offensive. And the police officer could have had that in mind, both from the point of view of people likely to be offended in an emotive situation, and as a concern for the safety of the woman wearing the T-shirt. By the same token, if someone came out of, say, an EDL meeting where they had been given lots of pats on the back for wearing a 'Fúck George Floyd' T-Shirt would you be stepping in to defend them when they got to a Black Lives Matter protest?

Wow, that's a helluva leap there!

I mean, I wouldn't wear a Feck Boris t-shirt at my nan's funeral either.

What do you reckon are the chances she's off to her local Conservative club?!

Thats a false equivalence.

Here's the thing- I couldn't give two F's about bad language- it doesn't offend me.

But my Mum would be bothered. And I wouldn't want a 6 year old child reading it and it being normalised for them.

So basic common decency dictates that, when in public, you refrain frmo imposing your language on others. Its just common decency.

I agree its generally ought not to be a police matter.

Sorry, Dolly, but I don't think you brain is in gear at the moment. It is no leap at all. Of course, she is unlikely to be going to the local Con club but she might encounter people from a similar background as the local Con club on her way to and from the march.

This is such a simple concept I get exasperated having to explain it to you, it goes back to John Stuart Mill and his example of protesting about the Corn Laws being a good thing to do but not on the steps of a corn merchants house and in front of a mob ('On Liberty', published 1859) - I think most children get taught this one before they leave secondary education, don't they?

The irony, of course, is that when you normalise swear words they cease to be swear words. We've seen that with certain words in our lifetimes.

Also, context is important. She isn't meeting your mother or a 6 year old child. I imagine most people would cover it up if they were. She's on her way from a protest march, where in the context the comment on her t-shirt is justified.
