12 January (Part 1) - Harassment charge rumbles on

There has been little time for blogging today, it has been a day for telephone calls and email.

One of the telephone calls came from Kent Police in response to the complaint I wrote when first emerging from the flu bug.

In nearly half an hour the Inspector made it clear that the intention was to put me before a Magistrate for criminal harassment of Councillor Maxine Fothergill who, as publication of her emails will have shown, was only interested in total suppression of the news of her High Court appearance.

How a Court appearance will help her suppress the news I am not quite sure. Maybe her real motivation is revenge.

The Inspector, whilst making it clear that prosecution was Sergeant Cooke’s decision and nothing much can stop it now, most certainly listened carefully to the full story and offered some useful suggestions.

He dropped into that conversation the fact that Kent Police had seen the support for my position and a letter from my MP. However none of that cuts any ice with them.

Behind the scenes press support continues with an assurance that they recognise the grave attack on news reporting and their intention is to publish in due course.

And the Crime Commissioner for Kent has been in touch again.

A bit of me wants to go to Court to expose the silliness of it all, but on balance I would rather not.
