I COULDN’T help a chuckle at the recent pictures of Anita and Leigh Turner, parents of the arrogant, spoiled murderer Elliot Turner. He is the 20-year-old Porsche owing despicable boaster who strangled his girlfriend, after flying into a jealous rage on seeing her innocently photographed with a couple of topless men. Because they attempted to cover up for his vicious crime, the wealthy parents were found guilty of perverting the course of justice. Consequently, when they turned up at court for sentencing they were fully expecting a jail term. In an act almost beyond belief, they packed for it! The photos show this utterly out of touch pair, arriving at court with an enormous suitcase and a number of large carryalls. What I would have liked to have been was a fly on the bedroom wall when they did it. “I say dear, should I take the silk or satin pajama’s’?” “It may be a bit chilly so you’d better pack the fur lined Burberry. And don’t forget plenty of clean designer underwear and loafers”. “Do you think it would be too much to take the clubs?” Hah – are they in for a shock or what? I wonder just how far this remorseless pair will realise they have fallen as they sit in their respective cells clad in a shapeless garment, clutching a plastic fork and spoon, with all their designer gear stored in ‘property’? Sometimes it never ceases to amaze me just how out of touch some people can be. Like those politicians who keep our brave troops fighting and dying in the God forsaken hole known as Afghanistan. Whatever made them think they can still win this ‘war’? Don’t they realise that the bulk of the Afghans hate all Westerners? Are they not aware that the minute we are out of the country, the Taliban will immediately begin to take it all back? Any puppet government we leave in charge will crumble. Those left alive will defect and a new and stronger enemy will emerge. All the spilled blood and heartbreak of our fighting forces will have been completely and hopelessly in vain. How many more have to die before these pampered political pillocks pull our brave boys and girls out altogether?
Finally what joy it was to see the case against Ms. Heathcote-Drury thrown quickly out of court. This poor woman had been a victim of the hatred and disdain many Muslims feel for those who don’t follow their beliefs and subsequently attempted to have her ‘punished’ by accusing her of racism and then blatantly lying about the whole unfortunate incident. All power to the court that quickly cleared her and thumbs way down for PC police and the CPS for allowing it to get as far as it did.
