https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7149043/Falklands-veteran-57-questioned-two-detectives-posting-tongue-cheek-tweet.html

A decorated Falklands war veteran was stunned to find himself quizzed by two police officers over a light-hearted tweet about Brexit. Tony McNally, 57, was visited by Cumbria Constabulary after tweeting: 'Maybe it's time for a military coup to sort Brexit out'. Mr McNally, a father of two who served in Northern Ireland and the Falklands, said: 'I couldn't start a military coup. It was a waste of police time, heavy-handed and totally unnecessary . . . The tweet was just a ­tongue-in-cheek, off-­the-cuff re­mark.' . . .

He said the officer compared his post with threats of violence against MPs and brought up the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox before the 2016 Brexit referendum. Tony, of Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, said: 'I'm not the enemy here. I served my country and I'm proud of it.'

The veteran deleted the tweet after receiving online abuse. Cumbria Constabulary said: 'We were made aware of concerns. Officers visited and gave advice regarding the post. No more action was taken.'


---------------------------------------

"Maybe it's time for a military coup to sort Brexit out" - was that a direct incitement to violence? I don't think so. A direct incitement would have been like: "I urge the military to launch a coup to sort Brexit out" - that would have warranted a visit from the police, but not what he actuallly said.
