This evening Britain First published one of its most entertaining videos yet. This is the one where Jayda Fransen demonstrates her total misunderstanding of the British legal system to the point of pure farce. It’s almost as though she doesn’t actually have any legal training at all!
The video is in response to Fransen’s recent communication from Luton and Bedfordshire Constabulary. The message, delivered via her solicitor is a legal bundle in which she is charged with three offences and summoned to court this Friday, August 5th 2016.
Predictably Fransen claims that the very idea of charging her with any crimes at all is outrageous evidence of a conspiracy against her. She never once acknowledges that the police might just have a point in prosecuting those who break the law. Nor does she express even the slightest relief at the fact that there are only 3 charges. We can think of an awful lot more events that both Fransen and Fuhrer Golding could legitimately be charged for. However, these are the three charges (according to Fransen’s video) …
Breaching bail conditions
The logic here is ludicrous. Using her remarkably astute knowledge of law Jayda claims that because of an error that was acknowledged in court she decided that she wasn’t due to answer bail after the end of March. She neglected to consider the simple fact that legal judgements aren’t bound by discussions in court but by the final pronouncement from the bench. The magistrates occupying that bench said that her bail conditions would continue to apply.
Fransen later stated…
“I didn’t consider myself bound by the police bail”
As if it’s up to her her to decide whether she’s on bail or not! That’s ot how criminal law works, Jayda!
She did not state that the court had released her from the bail conditions. In fact she clearly reports in the video that the court upheld the bail conditions.
“The magistrates allowed them to keep the conditions in place.”
This much was obvious. She then released a video on April 1st (that seems strangely appropriate) in which she tore up her bail conditions and announced that neither she nor Paul would be answering bail any more. Unfortunately for her, the Fuhrer did continue to answer his bail which is why Fraulein Fransen will face the beak alone on Friday. It seems the Fuhrer “played a blinder” against her this time.
Apart from mentioning the uniform alongside a still of some perfectly innocent, green party political activists wearing sweatshirts (minus the rank insignia and regimental or divisional demarcation that Britain First use), Jayda didn’t argue about this one. That’s because her glorious leader has already admitted in court that Britain First do, indeed wear political uniform. He pleaded guilty in court to just that offence last Friday and was duly convicted and fined as a result. That set a precedent which means that Fransen hasn’t a leg to stand on contesting this particular charge. Paulie’s ‘played another blinder’ against her. Never mind Jayda – that’s what you get for trying to usurp the Fuhrer!
Religiously motivated harassment
The heavily edited video accompanying Fransen’s mock outrage over this charge is just typical Britain First fayre. As expected the ‘case’ for her defence, played out in glorious technicolor to persuade her supporters (as though they actually get to have a say) consists of the usual montage of clips pieced together deliberately to show exactly what Britain First want us to see. Hopefully the police will have rather more complete and significantly less biased evidence with which to convict her.
Best of all, as ever, she begs for money to fight her case. She mentions Paul’s recent legal fighting fund as though its presence means that her loyal sheeple should cough up a second time for her case. What she doesn’t mention is the fact that Paul pleaded guilty and so never had to use his fighting fund. So far as we can tell there has been no attempt to refund the money raised so presumably Jayda could use that. Unless of course Paul’s already spent it on accommodation in readiness for Jayda kicking him out of Beeches Close.
Let’s face it – he must be on dodgy ground now after he’s played so many ‘blinders’ against her.
