Won’t stop till they get him

Two judges today gave permission for a new case to be brought against him at the Old Bailey in London, following an application by the Attorney General Geoffrey Cox QC.

But a contempt finding made against Robinson was quashed by the Court of Appeal in August and he was freed from prison after serving two months of his sentence.

The case was then referred back to the Attorney General, who announced in March it was in the public interest to bring fresh proceedings against Robinson, 36, from Luton.

Lady Justice Sharp said permission would be given for fresh proceedings to go ahead on all grounds.

She said reasons for the decision would be thought out and given at a later date.

This in the States would be called double jeopardy but in this country, May can do anything she likes at all with no legal recourse.

Absolutely nothing to do with the EU elections next week, where he stands as a candidate in the North West.

    “She said reasons for the decision would be thought out and given at a later date”

    In other words she hasn’t yet decided what these “reasons” are…

      I am very sceptical that this is an accurate quote. I am sceptical because it is so obviously unreasonable that a primary school child could see through it.

      I note that no words of the judge appear inside quotation marks.

      Without that precie quote, or a link to the official record of the court procedings, I am not willing to accept it as reported here.

          That’s not the same as saying that reasons havn’t been thought out.

          It’s not uncommon for decisions to be handed down and the full judgement published later.

          The original post here falls down because of the implication that the reasons don’t yet exist.

            Sigh. Ignores all the foregoing in this case. Not a valid tactic.

    “”This in the States would be called double jeopardy but in this country…..””

    As in Oz where Cardinal Pell was tried twice. The first was a hung jury 10 for innocent, 2 for guilty. Anywhere else it would be a not guilty at 10-2. The second trial astonishingly was unanimous guilty. More careful Jury selection !! Aka ‘Fix’. Even the Judge was astonished.

    TPTB just make it so obvious don’t they! Giving the decision and admitting the reasons would be thought out later – when we all know perfectly well that the real reason is to find a way to stop him standing in the EU elections. Personally I rather dislike the bloke, but seeing how he’s being treated I hope everyone votes for him.

    Clocked a political leaflet from this fellows publicity team yesterday, the friend showing it to me retrieved it from his recycling bin where “they all go rather quickly” he said.
    Tom said in print he was giving 100% of any future MEP wages to charity.
    The immediate reaction from my friend when he first read that statement was “Who the duck is paying his living expenses then?

      A reasonable question that deserves an answer.

      If his income is such that he doesn’t need to draw a salary, like President Trump,
      then his voters should know where it comes from.
