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…
Last week, Hope Not Hate (HNH) ‘Head of Intel’ Matthew Collins was forced to delete a series of five tweets about me after I complained to both his boss, Nick Lowles, and to Twitter:
Musical extracts ~ me playing keys over backing tracks of jazz standards, Taking a chance… and Gee, baby…

Unfortunately, owing to tech issues, I am unable to upload the documents cited but will keep trying and update as necessary.

Reasons for the enemy wanting ever stricter bail conditions became clearer last Wednesday. First imposed December 2016 by Friend of Israel DJ Emma Arbuthnot (recused), I have now been on bail for 15 months. Last autumn’s Freedom of Information request provides ample confirmation of Crown witness and CAA Enforcer Steve Silverman‘s determined efforts to have me locked up for breach of bail, thus obtaining a police interview which could be used against me in court. Much of the questioning in fact centred on my answers to Sgt Jon Lloyd regards my song Too Extreme For The BNP for which no charges have been brought. I think on the whole press coverage was pretty fair: selective in parts, for sure, but Jenni Frazer actually manages to call me a performer – a giant step forward. Hurrah!
