2 August (Part 1) - Olly Cromwell’s Appeal

Councillors Seymour and BauerHow long is it since the date of blogger Olly Cromwell’s appeal was set? Two months in case you’ve forgotten. And when is he due in Court? Tomorrow morning, so everyone is geared up to see this pair in the witness box then? Well, yes and no. We are; they are not.

Late yesterday afternoon, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) asked for an Adjournment, and why? The two witnesses have announced they have more important things to do. Sandra Bauer says she is moving house (†) having, one must assume, forgotten to put her date with Woolwich Court in her diary when she first knew of it back in June.

What excuse does Bexley’s favoured painter and decorator offer? His daughter is likely to give birth at the critical moment. Since when were grandfathers an essential part of the maternity business? When one is desperate for an excuse presumably. Readers may remember that Olly’s wife was due to give birth while he was being sentenced at Bromley Magistrates’ Court. He was denied a deferment. Turn up or face jail was the Court’s decree. Will this be another case of one rule for them and another for the general population?

At this moment, the outcome of Seymour and Bauer’s excuse making is unclear. Stand by for a Part 2 later today.

† All this house moving makes me think it is time Elwyn and I checked the Register of Members’ Interests again - and hope some council nutter isn’t tempted to create another obscene blog.
