Back to Keep Scotland British!

2 years for serious assault but 5 years for Sectarian chants

I am in support of cracking down on Sectarian chants within football stadiums however I think Alex Salmond is opening a can of worms when suggesting to impose a 5 year prison sentence for anything related to sectarian chanting, offensive banners (I wonder if Celtic's supporters clubs who are named after IRA members will be included in this) and anything that people will find offensive including t-shirts with slogans on. If a certain minority in Scotland had their way I think they would see the Union Flag as offensive also. How can you impose a 5 year sentence but people who commit serious assault will get on 2-3 years behind bars? Strange one Mr Salmond.
