Today's On Bail Murderer

Liam Brigginshaw, Assistant Chief Constable of Essex, said: "Thompson is a dangerous individual.

"He (Scott Thompson) is known to carry a knife and we are aware of two other incidents in which allegations of rape have been made against him - one in London where an investigation is still continuing."


So dangerous that he was given bail for an alleged rape and stabbing - leaving him free to rape and stab Catherine Grosstephan, aged 89.

He raped her twice and stabbed her six times when she tried to run away. He was arrested the same day but police later bailed him - despite compelling evidence including his DNA on the woman's underwear and the previous rape allegation - when she said she did not want to pursue the case.

I see. The new politically correct 'we always prosecute' police give a man bail despite a woman in hospital with stab wounds and DNA evidence. I think this is one of those cases when I'm with Julie Bindel.

Laban,

"London Pride has been handed down to us.
London Pride means our own dear town to us,
And our pride it for ever will be.
London Pride is a flower that's free.
Woa, Liza,
See the coster barrows,
Vegetable marrows
Woa, Liza,
And the fruit piled high.
Little London sparrows,
Covent Garden Market where the costers cry.
Cockney feet
Pins a memory down.
Mark the beat of history.
Every street
The grace of London Town.

Nothing ever can quite replace
Growing in the crevices by some London railing,
Though it has a Latin name, in town and country-side
There's a little city flower every spring unfailing

We in England call it London Pride.
London Pride is a flower that's free.
London Pride has been handed down to us.
London Pride means our own dear town to us,
And our pride it for ever will be.
Hey, lady,
See the policeman yawning
When the day is dawning
On his lonely beat.
Mayfair in the morning,
Gay lady,
Hear the footsteps echo in the empty street.
Early rain
And the pavement's glistening.
All Park Lane
In a shimmering gown.
Nothing ever could break or harm
The charm of London Town. "

Noel Coward, 1941.

Don't worry, I'm sure "lessons would be learned" if only "more resources were provided", it was "an error of judgement" (number 1,223,346), etc etc ad nauseum

Gosh, I hope you don't mean that in the Biblical sense. I don't think she'd like it... ;)
