Yesterday was the day Sabine’s been bleating about for weeks now…no, not the day she gets to act as the guy in her own personal Bonfire Night, though that would suit her implacable sense of martyrdom quite well, don’t you think?
Rather, you might recall that a group of visiting members of the European Parliament were to meet with UK authorities to discuss child welfare issues. Sabine and her pals set up a ‘parallel event’ in the Theatro Technis in Camden, titled ‘The UK and EU Dimensions of Forced Adoptions’. They broadcast this via Skype, enabling some of our friends to pop in and take a peek. If you click this link, you’ll get a quick shaky-cam tour of the venue, which is remarkable mainly for its shabbiness.
But look who showed up for the online discussion part!
No discussion of terrible things happening to parents who richly deserve terrible things would be complete without Belinda, who actually looks as though she might have had her hair done for the occasion! Or else there was Vaseline on the camera lens. Hard to tell, really.
And look who’s checking in via Skype (because she daren’t show up in person, for fear that the police will catch on and realise she is actually quite fit to be out and about. If they knew, they might expect her to show up at the police station three times per week rather than just once for her bail check-ins.
Hope you didn’t violate your bail conditions by discussing Hoaxtead again, Sabine! (Oh, what the hell, we know she did. The only question is for how long, and how many people were driven to suicide in the process.)
And would you look here! It’s Munchkin Man, also known as Rumpelstiltskin! Sans his usual hat, but we’d know that little face anywhere. He’s rarely far from Belinda’s side, as we understand that whenever he goes out to do her bidding, she springs for a McDonald’s hamburger afterward. That’s more than enough to buy this little fellow’s loyalty.
We’re not sure who the disgruntled-looking gentleman in the centre is, but my goodness, isn’t that Deborah ‘I am not an EU legal expert’ Mahmoudieh on the left? Why, we think it is! And the camera has caught her in a rare moment of calm, with her lips actually touching one another. Astonishing.
Anyone recognise Mr Blond Dracula here? He’s not familiar to us, but he certainly has the intense, wild-eyed thing down. Or maybe he’s auditioning for a role in a community theatre version of the Rocky Horror Show. Hard to say.
We look forward to the video version of the entire shindig, which we’re sure either Belinda or Sabine will post in short order. We’ll keep you posted!
p.s. Sorry, missed one:
