Chabloz trial raises more concern over “right to offend”

We will likely never know the real reason why District Judge Snow instructed that my latest trial, originally scheduled to take place March 30 and 31 at Hendon Magistrates, has now been transferred back to Westminster Magistrates Court. 

Prior to reversing the choice of venue, the judge was clearly at pains to avoid any repetition of the “procedural nightmare” instigated by my first trial (which lasted from December 2016 to June 2018, followed by the hullabaloo with probation, including a short spell in jail, later overturned on Appeal, all for composing and performing satirical songs that were uploaded to the Internet, and that were deemed by the same court to be “grossly offensive”). In all, I was in the dock for less than an hour, then invited to sit in court whilst complex directives for what is to come next were set out.

Left: outside Wesminster Magistrates last Thursday with barrister Adrian Davies.

There were three or four journalists in court. Below are links to several reports (although the term must be applied loosely to the first two). (paywall)

“Blogger”, “music teacher”, “notorious” whatever… The inaccuracies (and indeed one particular sentence that is clearly contempt of court) are once again too numerous to mention. Likewise, my bail conditions prevent me from defending myself against the slurs and general character assassination. 

As for the po-faced band of “charitable” Inquisitors still pushing for my further persecution and prosecution, they are now demanding “a sentence with real teeth.”

Moreover, CAA appears to be fully tucked up in bed with Antifa:

Finally, two reasoned updates, December 17 and 18, along with more general news and observations, courtesy of Ian Millard.

As Mr Millard notes in his most recent blog post, of relevance to my latest case is Thursday’s announcement concerning the Court of Appeal ruling on the “right to offend”. In light of this legal precedent, if my trial does go ahead, at least we will be safe in the knowledge that rules applied to other groups do not apply to my accusers, (for whom vexatious prosecutions are apparently a lifestyle choice), and that the rest of us must be silent or else face the music – with real teeth.

Speaking of music, – far less tedious in my view than legal updates – I am proud to present my latest parody, Royal Variety style, just in time for Christmas.

Peace and blessings to all.

    The superb development in the Court of Appeal was reported only by the Telegraph. First class article! I love this part of it:

    ‘Lord Justice Bean and Mr Justice Warby ruled that “free speech encompasses the right to offend, and indeed to abuse another”, adding: “Freedom only to speak inoffensively is not worth having”. ‘

    Also very gratifying is the Telegraph’s report that:

    ‘Bryn Harris, chief legal counsel of the Free Speech Union said the judgment was “a welcome reminder of when the law will step in to protect free speech.”
    He added: “We view this as a positive sign that the senior judiciary will exercise their jurisdiction forcefully, and control wayward judges in lower courts who can’t seem to remember their ever-present obligation to protect freedom of expression.’

    We certainly saw enough of the ‘wayward judges in lower courts’ during your absurdly protracted hearings before them, Alison!

    Thank you for your delicious parody! I am returning to it now.

    Have a lovely Christmas and a properly rumbustious New Year!

    Your resistance is another thorn in the side of followers of Lucifer and his excrement encrusted spawn. At this time, those who persecute you are in the ascendency. One only needs too gaze upon the state of the world to realise that when German 92 year-olds , who demand the right to be heard and their questions answered, are imprisoned for 3 years……………………to know that things ain’t gonna get better……………..just yet. As the worlds masses sit , transfixed in a form of waking coma, bludgeoned by the avalanche of Fear-Porn-Propaganda , it is clear the worm is not for turning. When will it happen? Well only when the masses grow a pair I’m afraid…………….and that could be in 7 weeks or 70 years ! Until then figures like you and Ursula Haverbeck are sent to gaol, are become martyrs in the eyes of right-minded folks, and that simply amplifies the message too the sleep-walking; “Wake up and grow a pair !” My thoughts and prayers are with you and those who stick a finger in the eyes of Tyranny. God Bless .
