It’s been an exciting although somewhat tiring weekend. Up with the lark yesterday, Eurostar to Paris to attend the IVth Forum de l’Europe where I had been invited to speak in the afternoon and sing in the evening. Today, Sunday May 13th, I also attended a Parti Nationaliste Français demo in honour of St Jeanne d’Arc.
As and when reports arrive I will share more information and hopefully a couple more photos and videos.
The pace remains intense as tomorrow, Monday May 14th I will be back at Westminster Magistrates for the umpteenth time. Rendez-vous at the usual place and time.
Surely no cohencidence [sic] that Jez Turner will be in the dock at the same time also tomorrow morning at Southwark Crown Court for the judge’s final summing-up? A verdict is expected at 2pm.
Barrister Adrian Davies is no stranger to pressure, and your support at both hearings would be greatly appreciated. Let’s have two full public galleries for this double bill and show the powers-that-be that we will not be intimidated.
First, they came for the patriots…
Best of luck for tomorrow. May the day smile on you.
I tweeted your latest blog post.
I hope that this email does not get to you too late, in view of your court appearance today (I am emailing at 0300 hrs Monday 14th, thanks to my present disturbed sleep pattern).
I also hope that Adrian Davies is not double-booked. If he is, I suppose that your legal argument might have to be adjourned unless a barrister not familiar with your case is instructed, which would be unsatisfactory.. Under the Bar rules, when a barrister faces a diary clash at short notice, he has to prioritize a criminal case over a civil one and, if both are criminal, the one in the higher court (if applicable).
In any event, good luck and my best wishes for your victory.
Best wishes, Alison. Do not bow down to them.
NEVER bow down to them! That’s what they pray (prey?) for. Once you are on your knees… They go for the ritual slaughtering.
Can’t come… too far… no ways… but I will keep my fingers “Haken-crossed”.
They do indeed, look them in the eye and spit in it. It is the only thing they fear, they are used to capitulation, and expect it – almost demand it.This is not idle talk, I’ve been there and faced – and suffered – the worst they have to offer. They are few, we are many, we have the real power – not them.
