I’m back. For how long is uncertain but, for now, I am once again at liberty to express myself in my own home country. This new-found liberty is necessarily tempered by way of another upcoming trial for another satirical song, rendering the art of expression somewhat limited. I’m sure you get my drift.
Above: keeping busy with sourdough, making preserves and tending to my little garden.
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.

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).
This update concerns a new case against me, which first began with a request from Special Branch to attend an interview under caution exactly one year ago – which I refused – and for which I was then arrested outside Derby Crown Crown, January 10th.
In total, I received three separate summons for Tuesday’s hearing. The court clerk should perhaps consider new ways of declaring his (or her) flame?
By Monday evening, my lawyers had not seen any sign of a skeleton argument from any “Special Counsel”, supposedly hired after this latest trial against me for thought crime was again adjourned, for the third time, on October 26th.
The Crown now has a further four weeks to come up with the proof that their latest prosecution was carried out a) in good time and b) within the lawful limitations of criminal standards necessary to go to trial.
District Judge Michael Snow did alleviate my onerous bail conditions somewhat. I am now free to post online, bar a list as long as my arm of forbidden topics. The only report to be published (behind a paywall) by the far-from-impartial Court News UK repeats some of the more preposterous claims made by the opposition, and which I will not repost here for fear of already breaching those same terms.
My trial is now adjourned until 10 am, Demember 17th 2020, once again at my old haunt, Westminster Magistrates Court.
Two fellow freedom fighters came along to lend support. After the hearing, we sat and chatted together with my barrister, Adrian Davies. The pub would have been preferable, but these are all closed due to Lockdown.
My appeal against the National Probation Service takes place this Friday, January 10th 2019, 10.30 am, at Derby Combined Court Centre, Morledge, Derby DE1 2XE.
This post could be the last one for a while, as I expect to be sent back behind bars for three weeks. If further conditions are imposed, these may well include an outright ban from publishing on the Internet, including here on my own website. My enemies – the enemies of freedom of expression – wish to see me silenced for good. They, along with the other usual suspects, are still falsely claiming that I was convicted for ‘holocaust’ denial. The aim is to mislead people into believing that questioning or, in my case, mocking the dubiousness of orthodox ‘holocaust’ history, would be a criminal offence. Bring it on, I say: such legislation, as already exists in many European countries, only makes people more curious as to why it is unlawful to question a historical event. Continue reading →
Season’s greetings to all. Here is a brief review of 2019 that, in the end, turned out to be not so brief. The new year is fraught with the prospect of yet another upcoming spell behind bars, for singing songs. More on that later…
Peter Coulson, presiding judge at yesterday’s High Court hearing, when relying on the Crown’s citation of authorities from the 2012 Twitter joke trial (R vs Chambers), stated wrongly that, unlike YouTube videos that are available for to everyone to see, it was necessary to be registered with Twitter to see tweets. The ruling also states, also wrongly in my view, that – as with a tweet – my videos were “immediately streamed” as a result of anyone accessing them.
Also sitting, Bobbie Cheema-Grubb, admonished my barrister, Adrian Davies, for his analogy – coherent in my view – that the ‘sending’ of a message to an inanimate object, as in to a server in California, fails to come under the legislation of S. 127.
Whilst Cheema-Chubb noted that it was unhelpful to compare old forms of communication with the Internet, she appeared not to take into consideration the fact that legislation contained within S. 127 has a history dating back decades, first for ‘offensive, menacing or threatening’ letters and then for similarly abusive phone calls.
Final business of the day was an agreement between both sides, in court, that my costs were to be covered by the tax payer: a pretty clear admission that this entire farce has been a huge waste of precious court time and of public resources.
Commitment and sacrifice are the same thing. Committing oneself to the revisionist cause is perforce a self-sacrificial act, especially in countries where expression of doubt or non-belief of proven lies is unlawful. In the UK, however, revisionism is not unlawful, despite wishful thinking on the part of many of my accusers.
To recapitulate: militant Zionist NGO, Campaign Against Antisemitism, CAA, brought a private prosecution against me for a video I had originally uploaded outside English jurisdiction. After taking over and discontinuing CAA’s private prosecution, the Crown Prosecution Service, CPS, then brought two pairs of charges against me for a video containing two of my songs, (((Survivors))) and Nemo’s Antisemitic Universe in a video of a live performance of my show, Tell Me More Lies, originally uploaded to the London Forum YouTube channel, September 2016. A third charge was added for a third song, I Like the Story as it is – SATIRE, in 2017.
This latest round of persecution has led to my profile being raised further, with messages of love and support flooding in from near and far. Many thanks to everyone for their kind encouragements.
