Racist lady on the tram

WARNING---this video contains very offensive language.

This video went viral after an English woman on the tram expresses how she wants all non-British people to go back to their countries. She views that immigration is ruining England.
At some point, this racists English lady tells a black woman to go back to Nicaragua, which is obviously not in Africa. It's a sadly ignorant statement.

Despite her outburst passengers did not physically attack her. Later on, she got arrested. Should she have been arrested for expressing her opinion ? Or is her opinion a violation of the law ? Which means, how far can we take our freedom of speech ? What is your view on this ?

  1. No, I don't think she should have been arrested for her comments but I do think she should have been kicked off the tram. It is sad that racism still exist to this extent. This is ridiculous!
