Remember the guy who burned the poppy on Remembrance day? Unemployed (and probably unemployable) got a £50 pound fine and boasted that he’d pay it out of his £800 a month benefits.
Well the guy who tried to stop him doing it was in court today charged under a Section Five public disorder offence (he jumped a police barrier to stop the burning)
Well I’ve just learned he was fined £315.
He has appealed the fine and will be going to Isleworth Crown Court in 6-8 weeks for the retrial, so currently the fine is on hold.
One guy who offends a nation gets fined £50, another guy who tried to stop him is fined £315 awaiting an appeal, and one guy who burns a Koran gets a 70 day jail sentence.
And they wonder why people are getting angry.
There may be reports tomorrow of violence outside the court, so lets’ put the record straight. There were 50 supporters outside the court, 10 Muslim youths approached them and one punched a young lady in the face, two of the Muslims were arrested, not the supporters.
Here’s a video of the assault.
