Caught In The Webbe No More?

If Claudia Webbe were to be convicted, then it would prove what I myself had been told, that there was no defence to a charge of harassment. The crime consists in having made the complainant feel harassed. If she says that she was, then she was. No lawyer would commit professional suicide by representing you if you tried to plead not guilty; I have that in writing. What matters is that the complainant is well enough connected to have her case taken up by the Crown Prosecution Service. If she is, then she and it are guaranteed a kill.

But if Claudia Webbe were to be acquitted, then, following the acquittal of Apsana Begum, Keir Starmer could not remain as a person who was considered fit to be seen or mentioned in public. He ought to enjoy being a former Director of Public Prosecutions in the prison to which he had tried to send two MPs from his own party. Due to events soon afterwards, I do not know whether the following was ever published, but it was sent to several newspapers on 23rd April:

We unreservedly condemn the Crown Prosecution Service for its racist persecution of Apsana Begum MP, of Claudia Webbe MP, and of other political critics of its former Director, and its preferred candidate for Prime Minister, Keir Starmer.

Yours faithfully,

David Lindsay, ongoing victim of such persecution; Independent parliamentary candidate for North West Durham, 2019 and 2024; candidate for General Secretary of Unite the Union, 2026
