Tory Spin-Doctor Bites Back: I’m No Cannibal*
*Bit Only In Self-Defence

After saying all day he would not give us a statement, Adrian Yalland has released a statement:

There are two sides to every story – especially this one. The video shows only three things clearly.

1. Me repeatedly walking away from an aggressive and abusive man who admits to mental health and anger problems, on whom I had just served legal papers relating to a libel action.

2. The same man stealing the phone from my outstretched hands on which I had just taken a photo of the house I just served papers at.

3. Me picking myself off the floor.

After having been pushed to the floor, I was punched in the back of the head by a second individual, and had a hand forced over my face, whilst I believe a second attempt was made to steal my phone. Whilst pinned down, and fearing further attack, I acted proportionately, in self defence, and only to allow me to escape – which I did immediately. The only person punched was me.

I am pleased a witness came forward to confirm my version of events, and I therefore look forward to the police concluding their investigations with interest, particularly their view on whether there is a case for perverting the course of public justice by making false allegations in order to cause an arrest.

Yalland admits to biting one of his alleged assailants, he is counter-claiming that he is the victim who was attacked. Guido is inclined after hearing his side of the story to give Adrian the benefit of the doubt. Though amusingly, Yalland did once organise a junket for Tory MPs to Equatorial Guinea, where the local tyrant has been accused of… cannibalism

UPDATE: April 26th: Yalland says the police will not be pressing charges against him.

          In the earlier part of Good Queen Victoria’s reign, the age of consent for girls was 12. There was no age of consent for boys (because homosexual acts were illegal and sexual assault is overwhelmingly a male activity).

          Advocating lowering the age of consent to 14 may be seriously wrong, but it is not advocation of pedophilia, i.e. a lust for pre-pubescent children.

        Plod are scared of upsetting muzees says:

        I’m inclined to question the veracity of the accusations and the CPS decision to prosecute based on the William Roache trial in which the accusers had changed their stories multiple times and yet were deemed convincing enough for a trial. One accuser said she was introduced to Roache by a certain actor on Coronation St. When she was told that actor hadn’t yet joined the show at the time she alleged it happened, she suddenly said it was a different actor who introduced them.

        There may well be some truth to the DLT claims, I don’t deny the possibility. The point of my original post was that police and the CPS ignored repeated reports of abuse because they were terrified of being called racist for arresting muslims. It’s also who the disgusting left wing socialist social services also ignored the reports, because social services are staffed by sandal wearing lefties who don’t give a shit about English girls being groomed and tortured, but if you so much as drink a beer within 50 miles of a mosque, they’ll call you a racist and demand you’re arrested and imprisoned for 500 years.

          Sounds like the CPS don’t know when to stop. Short of asking the jury what the score was in the jury room in the original trial there is no way that they know if they were close to a conviction or miles away.

          Sounds like two members of the jury were convinced that he did everything that he was accused of and with the last two charges a third or fourth member might have been a bit doubtful, even to the extent of saying “I’m not sure”. You need ten members to agree with a majority verdict, but the dissenters don’t have to actually disagree, just not be sure.

          I’m surprised that he was found not guilty actually. Not because I thought that he had done it (I don’t think that he did) but the phrase “no smoke without fire” got mentioned a few times when I did this sort of jury service, be people who you would hope to God would never get selected again.

      What a biting put-down. ;-)

      Have been out much of today so just wanted to thank you (or your ancestor, 7!) for clarifying that earlier Harcourt/CSC/Vernon (or even Venables-Vernon!) point. Incidentally, I knew one of the Vernon family very well when I was in my teens but we have lost touch now. As with the Harcourts, they had families either side of the Channel from Norman times.

      The oxfordddnb page, clearly source of the Wiki, written by Nigel Aston, sadly fails to make clear what you, commendably, did. He wrote:

      On 23 February 1821 he entertained his fellow directors [listed] at his house on Grosvenor Square the same night that in the adjoining house the Cato Street conspirators planned to murder the cabinet. George Canning jestingly said that the party – three members of the royal family and a war hero – were in danger of being assassinated in mistake for the ministers.

      A great anecdote, for sure. George Canning was of course Britain’s shortest-tenured prime minister.

      But the Cato Street conspirators had already been hanged on 1 May 1820. He ought to have said “the same night in the previous year…”

      Knowing the character of Venables-Vernon, one might be excused for thinking that, other than a complete coincidence, the date was deliberately chosen as a subtle reminder that one may succeed in killing the man but never the office. The history of those times were littered with similar expressions of defiance to would-be assassins, both at home and throughout the Empire.

      Interesing, she is not in any way saying that the document made it clear that the NCCL “deplores the exploitation of children whether in the form of use in non- commercial pornography” ie, the kind of pornography which many PIE members would have hoped to be able to legally make and exchange.
