Alison Chabloz trial
Well, another adjournment, contrary to expectations. Today, at Westminster Magistrates’ Court, was supposed to be the trial of the latest trivial complaint against the persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz, a complaint made by, yet again, the “Campaign Against Antisemitism” in the form of Stephen Silverman of South Essex.
From what bits and pieces emerged at previous hearings, and having fairly recently heard the Internet “radio” podcast which forms the key evidence, I had expected that either the prosecution case would be dismissed without a substantive hearing, or that Alison would be acquitted fairly easily today. Not so. Adjourned, yet again.
This time, the trial of Alison Chabloz has been adjourned, and set down for a 2-day hearing (at —of all places!— Hendon Magistrates’ Court). The trial dates are now the 30th and 31st of March 2021.
I shall relay any further information as and when I have it.

Zahawi, another non-European (in his case, Kurdish) interloper, freeloader, carpetbagger and would-be tyrant (and member of Conservative Friends of Israel). I do not blame him alone, however, but also the voters of Stratford-on-Avon, 60% of which (that bothered to vote) voted for him in 2019: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stratford-on-Avon_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2010s.
Meanwhile, literally thousands of blacks and browns, and Chinese, are arriving here daily as “legal” immigrants (“family members”, “fiances” etc), those on student or work visas (mostly never leave the UK again), or “asylum-seekers” arriving via boats across the Channel. Not to mention the other illegals arriving in truck cargoes, small planes, car boots etc.
ps. don’t tell me that that last is impossible: during the years 2005-2009 I commuted almost weekly UK-France via —usually— Plymouth-Roscoff. Out of maybe 400-500 crossings, the car itself was only checked and searched (closely) by immigration or Customs once arriving at Plymouth, twice on leaving the UK (Plymouth and Newhaven) and once at Roscoff (when leaving France).
I might add that the French search was the most invasive, the uniformed searcher requiring me to open all suitcases etc. He also opened places such as the spare-tyre section (it was an estate car/station wagon). I think that he picked me out because I was probably the only solitary car driver, and was so thorough because he then saw that my passport had many stamps, some uncommon (including some from USA, Russia, Kazakhstan, Caribbean islands, Hong Kong, Middle Eastern etc).
Talking about migrant-invaders, we also have those other “invaders”, persons born to UK-resident non-European mothers. Millions.
That news report about police checking buses reminded me of another story: back in 1975, one of my brothers had a friend whose own brother was an SAS soldier. At that time, or rather in 1973-74, there were concerns that the IRA might bomb the London Underground. Members of the SAS were tasked to search the stations and tunnels by day and night, and also to travel (in civilian clothes) on the trains.
That SAS man found it very soporific, riding round the Circle Line endlessly. After hours, he kept having to nudge himself awake. Then it happened. He had his weapon (a handgun) not holstered but under some clothing on his lap. It slipped out and clattered onto the floor of the train. Needless to say, some of those around must have thought that their last hour had come and that the SAS man was himself a terrorist.
Whether anything happened as a result, I do not know. I think not. Apparently a true story, anyway…
Forget the “Marxism” bit, which conveys little to the general public anyway. That film is, however, outright socio-political propaganda. We are in an existential fight with a ruthless (((enemy))), which enemy is using the “black lives matter” nonsense as a battering-ram. Anything is now justifiable in our struggle for survival as European people defending Western civilization.
Alison Chabloz update
I now have further verified information on what happened at court today. That information also underlines how the “justice system”, like so much else in the UK, is in a slow-motion meltdown.
The case (billed as a “trial”), was supposed to start at 1000 hrs. In fact, proceedings started at just before 1100 hrs. There were, it seems, three changes of courtroom! In my own years at the practising Bar (early/mid 1990s, and then 2002-2008), I think that we only had to change courtrooms at short notice a handful of times (almost always in the Royal Courts of Justice, i.e. High Court), and never in “the mags”. The system really is coming to pieces.
Alison Chabloz was asked to plead to three charges and pleaded Not Guilty to all.
Defence Counsel made representations. Among those were questions raised as to why the police had arrested Alison on the basis of “terrorism”, when all that is in issue in the case is whether a few remarks made on an Internet “podcast” are or are not “grossly offensive”(!).
Legal representations were made as to a number of matters, including when the full trial would be held. Prosecution Counsel apparently wanted next August, 2021! In the end 30-31 March 2021 was decided upon.
It seems that the full podcast will not be read out in open court. Pity. It might have woken up even more people to (((certain types))).
A two day trial, bundles of “evidence”, legal skeleton arguments etc, all because a malicious and tiny pressure group made a complaint about an Internet “podcast” chat heard by, probably, not very many people. When people say that the UK has “gone mad”, this is the sort of thing that they mean, inter alia.
Well, there it is. A trial at the end of March 2021, unless the matter is discontinued beforehand.
“Court News” is very obviously “(((so)))”…
Alison Chabloz: late further update
The latest news, only notified this evening, is that the trial of Alison Chabloz will in fact now be at Westminster Magistrates’s Court and not, as set down only this afternoon, at Hendon Magistrates’ Court.
Just as well. I was beginning to think that any further transfer would mean that Alison would face her trial at Tel Aviv!
I notice that the malicious “charity” called “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”] is still claiming that her 2018 conviction “set a precedent“. In fact, it set no precedent. Cases in magistrates’ courts never set precedents, legally, because they are heard on the lowest step of the judicial pyramid. That applies even to other and later cases heard at magistrates’ court level.
Also, in Alison’s appeal against the 2018 conviction, the Crown Court judge who heard her (unsuccessful) appeal was at pains to emphasize, in his judgment, that neither “holocaust” “denial” nor “antisemitism” are crimes in the UK.
Another “alumni” match. As also happened yesterday, I scored better than either. One team was from UCL (University College, London), which offered me a place in its law school in 1984 (which I —possibly foolishly— turned down because the law school seemed infested with unpleasantly loud Jewish students on the day when I attended for the interview).
That losing UCL alumni team this evening was very poor in almost all categories. Shamefully so.
Even mainstream talking heads like Peter Hitchens are now getting censored and rubbed out online.
Trump and Presidential pardon
Trump! You may need an army after you leave office. To that end, pardon as many social-national prisoners doing Federal time as you can in the next 2 weeks. Do it!
In fact, pardon both Assange and Snowden, too.

Thank you. Very relevant to the ongoing case of Alison Chabloz. I wonder whether her matter will even get to a full trial.
Is “infested with Jews” a helpful comment? Oh well, your blog, your rules. As to Alison Chabloz, legally a very weak case, in light of Judges Bean and Warby’s ruling on free speech the whole shebang looks like spite. Abroad appears to be the last refuge of resistance.
Helpful? “No religion is higher than Truth”, as the Theosophists used to say.
Re. the Alison Chabloz case, I have to agree with you, but the devil is in the word “legally”, because the persecution of Alison Chabloz by the most fanatical part of the Jewish lobby has led to this *politically-motivated* prosecution.
We shall have to see whether or not the prosecution continues or is discontinued. If the former, I should imagine that she has an excellent chance of acquittal, but, there again, that might depend on whether the driver is the law or the politics…
As you say or imply, the UK is problematic for free speech now.

The CAA and CPS are using a large sledgehammer to crack a small walnut. My guess is that on 29th March they’ll discontinue. Oddly, Eastern Europe now seems to be the last bastion of free speech.
That was/is my thinking, though I am about 50-50 on it. The CPS (and police, of course) have once again allowed themselves to be railroaded by the (((CAA))). It has ended on previous occasions in embarrassment for both CPS and CAA, despite the 2018 conviction, which resulted in penalties in relation to which Alison Chabloz was either let off (almost, not quite entirely), or cleverly managed to sidestep. It also resulted in huge publicity worldwide for Alison Chabloz, her songs, her satire etc. The continuing persecution/prosecution of Alison Chabloz has also woken up many people in the UK.
It is obvious to me why the CAA (Silverman, basically) brought the complaint forward and pushed it at that particular time, but I suppose that I should not discuss that at this time.
