This hour's the very crisis of your fate;
Your good or ill; your infamy or fame,
And all the colour of your life depends
On this important now.

~ Dryden's Spanish Friar


The diminutive lady is not singing. It sure ain't over. Typical.

I bet PC Pong is gloating.

Stark and unambiguous: The BS bully's shame 'n' guilt won't lie down. Do you hear the tumbrils rumble?

Riot Cop Cleared

Police's public order tactics "inadequate."

Acquittal an assault on justice ~ Of course it is, darling, but don't you realise the galvanising effect this fucked justice will have on Pongo's foes and grudgers?

This is when knives come out and stool-pigeons find they can fly.

Nary a worry, sweetheart. It's only just begun.

West Ham wonkers: Do read the comments from this bunch, too funny. You couldn't invent more typical brutish troglodyte reactions than wot the WH grunts dish up here.

Gawping in disbelief ~ The always level-headed George Monbiot spot on in his noting that "the ridiculous acquittal of a Met sergeant for striking a protester armed with a drink carton proves how important it is to try police officers by jury ... I don't think I'm the only one gawping in disbelief at yesterday's acquittal of Delroy Smellie."

Not just gawping: spitting gagging vomiting up shreds of belief in common sense.

You only have to look at what actually went on to lament the plummet in our safety from the uniformed thugs walking our streets.

Risk adversity. How very appropriate and coincidental that my other blog-bear is baby basher Venal Balls about whom 'Sir' David Latham has just pronounced in terms more suitable for PC Pong.

Oy, Sir Dave ~ all very well talking about Darth and Dora Public being "risk-averse over parole." How's about those of us who feel distinctly risk-averse about uncontrolled Smell-Dels lashing out willy-nilly with 'extendable metal weapons known as an asp'.

There's less than meets the eye here and I wonder if the truth will come out.

The District Judge with the job of ensuring odour-free justice is Daphne Wickham whose reputation for a straight gavel precedes her.

Let's see how she handles the spotlight on this one.

Notes for Editors: Daphne Wickham was called to the Bar in 1967. Her first senior appointment was in September 2003 as a Metropolitan Stipendiary Magistrate, later promoted to Deputy Senior District Judge (Magistrates' Courts).

Miss Wickham replaced Mr Timothy Workman who had been appointed Senior District Judge (Chief Magistrate) the previous March.

Learning his fate - And how very sensible of the papers to take from my own headline in re the 'fate' word.

When you blog it right, there ain't no way the mainstreamers can word it better.

Taste of Lies to Come - Smellie's weak defence comes down to 'self defence', despite all the photos and videos that give the lie.

But I have learned one thing: the rod with which he beat La Fisher is called an 'asp'. Nay, an 'extendable metal weapon, known as an asp', to be precise.

Very cleopatran.

"Nicholas Paul, of the Crown Prosecution Service, said he was justified when he shouted at her, pushed her back and struck her with the back of his hand.

But he said the officer went too far when he struck Ms Fisher across the thigh with the extendable metal weapon, known as an asp."

'Aspers' is so clearly one of those who should never be allowed near a uniform.

It will be educational to follow the continuing stench of this case, and what fun to be able to roll out old postings and juxtapose them with the squirming and worming lies PC Smellie will be coming up with.

What's needed here is reminders of how Delroy behaved at the time.

  • I've already suggested that looped film of Smellie's assault on Nicola Fisher should be running day and night in all police training centres and public waiting rooms.

  • His mealy-mouthed defence whinings should be printed large and posted up next to actual photographs:

    • Acted "in self-defence because he felt threatened by her and feared for his and his colleagues' safety."

    • Initially hit Nicola Fisher with a "clearance strike" by hand.

      • "Clearance strike", eh? That's one to add to my Dictionnaire d'Ordure Policière

    • Fisher was holding a large carton of orange juice in one hand and a camera in the other.

    • [Smellie] struck her ... when she surged towards him again, fearing the objects in her hands could be used as weapons against him.

      • I can see how a 12-gauge Brownie 127 could be used to take out a paficist gnome like Aspers - but a grande carton of OJ?

        • "I know what you're thinking.

          Did she take six sips or only five?

          Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a whole liter of Sunkist, the juiciest OJ in the world, and would quench your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel thirsty?

          Well, do ya, punk?"

    • Video evidence showed he struck the baton against her thigh twice in a matter of seconds.
    • "I had stepped back to give the crowd space and to reassess and scan for other dangers but the crowd, including Ms Fisher, still ended up closing me down ... I was not aware of any colleagues who were facing the crowd in Threadneedle Street. I thought from the moment I turned that I was by myself with a large threat in front of me."
    • [Smellie] said that, after striking her:
      "I hoped that she would either fall to the ground, drop the weapons or go away and get back, either one of those things she had been asked to do on many occasions.

      "But certainly to ensure that she was not able to use those weapons or that the weapons were not able to be used."

    • Asked how hard he hit Fisher, Smellie replied he was aware that she was "significantly smaller". He added:
      "However it had to be enough to achieve the objective of negating the threat."
      • Got to love those euphemisms ~ 'negating the threat'

  • OJ versus broken arm
  • Dosh for cosh but testimony kyboshed
  • Hilarious bleat: A 'Michael' moans about Borromeo's 'poor research' ... yak yak emotive, prejudiced and legally flawed ...piece of
    "agenda-driven diatribe that will feed on the antagonistic tendencies of her followers and grate on the police ... [here it comes] "I would recommend that she reads my book if she’s alarmed that ‘the doors are open for further police violence’ and certainly before she embarrasses herself with another unenlightened article on a subject she clearly knows nothing about.

    The Guardian should be ashamed of itself for allowing such hysterical nonsense into print."
