No Action Against Al Ghurabaa Protest

The Metropolitan Police have finished their investigation into the protest outside Westminster Cathedral. They have somehow concluded that no offences were committed. Sir Ian Blair said "It is the job of the Met to hold the line of the freedom of speech". So apparently that is why no prosecutions will be brought.

This is made even more interesting when you consider that South Wales Police managed to arrest a protester for handing out flyers with quotations from the Bible at a homosexual parade. They later charged him with:

threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour within the hearing or sight of a person likely to be caused harassment, alarm or distress thereby, contrary to section 5(1) and (6) of the Public Order Act 1986
Now, am I the only person who thinks that that same offence was committed by just about every person present at the protest outside Westminster Cathedral? This has nothing to do with enforcing the law and everything to do with being politically correct and not upsetting Muslims.
