Self-confessed teen fondler Mike Hancock is trying all the tricks in the book to get out of giving evidence to the Portsmouth City Council investigation into his conduct. He says he won’t talk until after his High Court case is over. The lawyers’ fees are clearly hitting Hancock hard in the pocket:
“This is the advice I have been given by my barrister. And you don’t pay for expensive legal advice only to ignore it. I will fully co-operate with the council, I have no problem whatsoever, but my barrister’s advice is not to do that until after the High Court.”
Well he wouldn’t want to risk saying anything silly, would he?
