On the subject of Mr. Dale and assaultSeptember 25, 2013 Tim Worstallblogs7 CommentsThis is an interesting tweet. @johnfairbanks @worstall A man will be returning tomorrow for further questioning, having been interviewed — Sussex Police (@sussex_police) September 25, 2013 Don’t you think? previousWhy hasn’t Iain Dale been arrested for assault?nextSo that’s green energy dead then 7 thoughts on “On the subject of Mr. Dale and assault” The Meissen Bison September 25, 2013 at 10:57 am Well yes, in the sense that one can speculate how many coppers of varied ranks and grades were involved in chirping this tweet. JuliaM September 25, 2013 at 11:41 am I’m with Meissen – it’s not interesting, it’s depressing. Richard September 25, 2013 at 12:00 pm Explains why he wasn’t arrested though. As I said, Plod knows who he is and where to find him, and he’s expected to co-operate, so even if he’s committed a crime they shouldn’t be arresting him. Interested September 25, 2013 at 6:03 pm Iain Dale is a tool, and a smug, nasty, entitled dickhead, and I hope (and predict) he’s charged with and convicted (upon a guilty plea) of common assault. So Much For Subtlety September 26, 2013 at 12:26 am Hasn’t Caroline Lucas been charged with something as well? Every now and then I am reconciled to the soft-police state Britain has become. Ian B September 26, 2013 at 2:41 am Neither of them are victims of soft police state policing or anything like that. The same laws applied in the past. If you assault somebody, you’re breaking the law. If you deliberately impede other citizens going about their lawful bunsieness, you’re breaking the law. Neither being a “protester” nor Dale’s remarkable self absorbed justification- “a publisher”- change any of that. ukliberty September 26, 2013 at 12:51 pm Dale has accepted a police caution and published an apology. http://iaindale.com/posts/2013/09/26/statement-and-apology Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
