I am to attend The City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Horseferry Road in Westminster on Friday, October 5th, 2007 for saying the word “bollocks” which I personally believe is a load of bollocks as is my understanding of this great English word.
I am accused of causing harassment, alarm and distress by swearing – saying the word ‘bollocks’ in connection with the word Blair - which I find rather amusing.
If Jamie Oliver can clearly state on national television that anyone who ‘believes’ that children deserve anything less than good, fresh food from their schools is a “wanker”, certainly I as a 41 year old well-educated and well-travelled woman and mother of three, have the right to say “Bollocks to Blair” for the many reasons I can choose from, given his long political catalogue of lies and deceptions. Nonsense indeed!
I have researched the case regarding The Sex Pistols album regarding the word bollocks and have found a few quotes along with plenty of present-day discussion and I really do need to see as much of the legal argument put forward by QC John Mortimer in defence of this wonderful Anglo-Saxon word which is part of our English history and enshrined within our Human Rights under Article 10 – Freedom of Expression as sometimes the police appear to have a problem with the phrase of bollocks to Blair and sometimes they don’t. The truth be known, most Metropolitan police truly appreciate the phrase and honestly support the humour it belies.
The law should be the law and if the word bollocks is a lawful legitimate term, honest, law-abiding citizens should not be being punished for freely expressing the mother tongue of this land.
If you could possibly post or contact me with the transcript from the case at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court from Nov.24, 1977 at your earliest convenience or attach with email or telephone through any additional information that may aid my defence, I would be extremely grateful. I am defending myself and ‘bollocks on my own.
If you have any further inquiries, please do not hesitate to call – XXXXX XXXXXX / email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for any advice, information and/or help that you can offer.

N.B. I also need to clarify, in open court, as to whether bollocks may be uttered in connection with the word Brown as I am not terribly fond of his idea of dealing with pension and education funding and thievery. Justice must be seen to be done.
