The defendant, a vision of bald head tattooed with the cross of St. George, pugilist's nose, the word 'HATE' tattooed across the knuckles of one hand, refused to accept that he had done anything wrong and kept harping on about the 'rights' of the 'EDL'
The prosecutor became quite robust in his examination of the defendant and suggested that the acronym 'EDL' gave a sort of homely feel to what had basically been a nasty confrontation. He asked the defendant why he didn't use the full title if he was so proud of being a member.
The defendant replied that he couldn't always remember all the long words, but could remember 'EDL'.
I wondered whether the defendant ought to be considered vulnerable.
