It’s been some time since we checked in with Maurice Kirk, Sabine and Belinda’s “Super McKenzie Friend” and loyal foot soldier. When last seen, he was creating havoc as he attempted to fly the length of Africa in a plane seemingly held together with bits of chewing gum and string.
Mr Kirk is known to readers of this blog as the McKenzie Friend for the Musa parents, in one of the worst cases of child abuse in the UK at that time. You might recall that he was charged with conspiracy to abduct the Musa children, the plan apparently being to fly them to African in one of his small planes.
So we were interested, but not particularly surprised, to discover that not only is he now back in South Wales, attempting to defend himself against four charges of breaching a restraining order. Mr Kirk appeared in court on Thursday, 30th March, to enter his plea, but says he was thwarted in this by the South Wales courts, which he claims discriminate against him because he is “an Englishman”. At least, we think that’s what he said.
He offered this somewhat garbled and selective account on his blog on 31 March…but strangely, when we returned to the blog to find the link yesterday, the post had disappeared. Thank goodness for screenshots, we always say!
As usual when it comes to any of the hoaxers or their friends, the evil lying CPS had “misled the court” in unspecified ways, documents and important information that would prove his case had been withheld, yadda yadda yadda blah blah bullshit gallywumpus. By the way, if anyone out there is able to translate the underlined sentence above, please do let us know. We’ve given it our best shot, but had to give up and go have a lie-down after half an hour or so.
Mr Kirk did post this interesting and not-at-all paranoid-sounding video, in which he elaborates on his current situation:
According to Mr Kirk, he has only been diagnosed as “insane”** seven times. We found this quite amazing.
We did find the following posted on Mr Kirk’s Facebook page, and feel that it might offer some background information about his problems:
We’ll keep our ears to the ground, and will let you know the outcome of Mr Kirk’s Tuesday court appearance.
**”Insane” is not a valid psychiatric diagnosis, just for the record, but may be used as a descriptor for one whose behaviour is considered shocking or outrageous. It can also mean, in the colloquial sense, someone whose state of mind prevents normal perception, behaviour, or social interaction.
