Following Sabine McNeill’s hearing at Highbury Corner Magistrate’s Court yesterday, we expected to hear the usual hue and cry from the cheap seats, and we were not disappointed.
Not unexpectedly, Tracey Morris, the Gob from the North, led off.
Her friend Morticia O’Riordan sounded a slightly calmer note, suggesting that they actually, you know, find out what the hell was going on before getting their collective knickers in a twist. Go, Morticia! But she was soon drowned out:
Niki Laverty was unimpressed, but not quite vocal enough for Tracey’s taste, so she engaged in a bit of cheer-leading, Tracey-style.
How she could imagine that the authorities somehow planned to make Sabine violate her bail conditions is a bit unclear, but Tracey is absolutely certain that they did it. Because: twisted bastards, the lot of them. Uh-huh.
Niki still wasn’t gnashing her teeth and rending her garments quite loudly enough, so Tracey chipped in again, noting that not only is Sabine’s legal team a mess, but “if she dies in there then we all know it was pre planned (sobby face) (sobby face) x”
How did we get from “two weeks in prison” to “dying”? Anyone?
Poor Leanne, lagging along behind, has no idea who and what her friends were talking about, but by gum she’s in there fighting the good fight with Tracey!
Yes, Tracey, it was all planned. Someone went to Sabine’s flat, forced her to make the fateful call, and then immediately called the police to come and pick her up. That’s totally how it works. Yes indeedy!
Also, let’s just hope that Sabine doesn’t take Tracey up on her kind offer to “expose the lot of it” herself. Whatever the charges facing her, Sabine deserves a fair trial, not some shouty fruit-loop with a chip on her shoulder.
More about Sabine’s legal team from Tracey, who apparently knows exactly what sort of legal team it takes to get a person out of harassment charges.
Well, everyone needs some area of expertise, we suppose.
Nice touch at the end, as Tracey says, “She’s doomed (blubbery face) xx”
This is too much for poor Popsey, who begs her not to say that.
Niki seems a bit confused. She seems to think that Sabine was remanded in custody because she broke the “hear no evil speak no evil” law? Weird.
But Tracey clarifies, with an explanation that’s short on facts or logic and long on dramaz:
She rang a charity for help when that snow was bad and they arrested her for it.. Seriously just couldn’t write the script.. I cant (sic) get this out of my head I’m ready to flip (blubby face) of (sic) anything happens to her and a finger led (sic) upon her, they will be very very sorry indeed.
That’s right, all you evil people out there: Tracey once beat the snot out of Gerry Adams in her front garden, and now he’s terrified of her, so don’t be messing with Tracey!
Danielle, we have some advice for you. Run, don’t walk, away from Tracey. When she says “educate yourself” she means “become a paranoid nut-job like me”. You don’t want that for you or your daughter, believe us.
Claire: Sabine is going to a prison for women, not a concentration camp. They’re not going to be subjecting her to torture; in fact, the last time she was a guest at Bronzefield her main complaint was that the food wasn’t completely to her liking.
Also, where did Claire see that Sabine hadn’t been charged? Is Claire playing with a full deck? We’ll spell it out: she got charged. She got put on bail. Even Belinda seems to understand it; here’s what she said yesterday:
Did she or did she not talk about the case to 3rd parties on the mentioned 2 occasions? Yes she did. They concluded moreover that the breaches were both deliberate and ‘flagrant’ rather than ‘inadvertent’, she was not naïve and knew exactly what she was doing.
Meanwhile, everyone stay out of Tracey’s way. She’s in a punchy mood right now, and you know what happened to Gerry Adams. Ah, we’re back to the legal team thing again. “Plenty of McKenzie friends and Sabine is very capable of representing herself”.
Oh dear. As entertaining as this might be, we really don’t think it’s in the best interests of the defendant. Plus, we don’t think it’s allowed in criminal courts, but otherwise, fab suggestion, Tracey!
In our Blast from the Past Department, we have Snedders popping in to note that “we live in a world run by EVIL”. And wine. Lots of wine. Pour her another, would you lads?
And Mike chips in: “They’re so bloody corrupt….Has she actually been sentenced now?” Do pay attention, Mike. No. She’s been remanded in custody until her next hearing. Would everyone please get a grip?
And bringing up the rear we have Jane, who seems to be in a complete state of confusion, knows nothing about the case, and seems to think that Sabine’s bail breach had something to do with the snow last week.
Aaand here we go: “Morally she has done nothing wrong in a democratic country and so therefore legally they cannot do this as morals stand higher than the legal law as you can be morally right but legally wrong but you cannot be legally right and morally wrong. Basically she stands on the moral high ground so legally they are wrong”.
Did you all get that? For some reason it’s bringing to mind a comment Justin Sanity made yesterday:
Whatever they may or may not call themselves, these Hampstead Hoax mobsters are a UK variant of the American “Sovereign Citizen” attitude to laws and legal judgements: “I don’t have to obey it if I don’t agree with it”.
Some carry this even further, and profess to believe it is their DUTY to break and or disobey laws/legal judgements that they don’t agree with. Right? This attitude even lies at the heart of their obsession with the CONCEPT of “whistle-blowing”…”If I don’t agree that something should be private, I have a right (and a duty) to publicize it as fanatically as I am able to”.
They are themselves the sole rightful “judge” of all these matter, they believe. And so, yes, they are most WILLFULLY belligerent and lawless, and it follows that they must be dealt with HARSHLY by the criminal justice system. They must be stepped on, by legal authorities, private corporations like social media companies and their advertisers, and they must be socially reprimanded in the strongest terms by the law abiding majority in society. There really is no “choice” about this.
By George, we think he’s got it!
