Piggies Squealing, Still Trying to Avoid Justice


One of m’learned co-conspirators has been in touch after Guido asked on Twitter why the MPs’ theft trials had been delayed.

M’learned friend says the case has been listed before the trial Judge at the Old Bailey today (this could change) for his ruling on an application (he believes) to stay the proceedings on the grounds that they can’t get a fair trial because of adverse publicity. He suspects the fact that the Supreme Court’s judgement was been released in full yesterday is connected with this (judgement here [pdf]).

Guido has previously reported on how the three former Labour MPs have attempted to avoid justice by insisting their case was heard by parliament not the courts, how they tried to have the case heard in secret, how they tried to avoid standing in the dock like common criminals and how they now seek to avoid prosecution on the grounds of bad publicity. Guido is certain this latest attempt to avoid justice will fail.

They are entitled to a fair trial and they will get one, the sooner the better.

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
