CPS take sensible approach on “Y” word, Make Baddiel aware today.

Posted on March 08, 2014 by Random Spurs Supporter

We will not say too much on the subject as the following statement from the CPS really says it all, at long last and after a period of deliberation that was far too lengthy the resulting decision was the only option available and thankfully for the three Tottenham supporters used as examples in what was a bad move from all concerned the anxiety is over. Tottenham whose hand was forced into banning the three have rescinded that ban and reimbursed the three also confirming that they are now free to return to the club they have followed for many years. This is what the CPS had to say:-

 “In considering whether a criminal offence could be proved we have to look objectively at the words used, and the context in which they were used. As part of the review, the context of the use of the words alleged in this case was reconsidered, and we have decided that, although the same words used in other contexts could in theory satisfy the criteria for ‘threatening, abusive or insulting’, it is unlikely that a court would find that they were in the context of the three particular cases in question.

“We have therefore concluded that there is insufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction. This decision has no bearing on any other cases that may be brought to our attention and all cases will be considered on their own facts and merits.”

So we now await to hear the final outcome from the Police Authorities as to the situation going forward, presumably the words of the CPS has finally put Baddiel in his place and suitably embarrassed Peter Herbert  a Barrister with so little knowledge of the law he championed this action against Tottenham and their supporters with no chance of succeeding.

    I bet nothing will be forthcoming from those two individuals.Thank goodness that common sense prevailed concerning the three Spurs fans.
