I was called into court and told by District Judge Jonas that on 25th September the CPS had made an application to prevent me from cross-examining Britton and other prosecution witnesses but it had been somehow "lost" by the Court. This was the SECOND such application by the CPS - the first failed but this one didn't. Accordingly the trial was adjourned until 14th January for me to obtain legal representation.
I had three witnesses at Court plus myself of course. A number of supporters attended. Three councillors were present as were the BBC and a representative from a national newspaper. I have never even had a parking ticket and all this is very stressful but now things have to drag on until the New Year. I am suspended from working as a child chaperone by Worcestershire County Council pending trial.
I made a formal complaint to the Court about this very late adjournment:
Yesterday, I received this bizarre letter from the Court!
I find the final paragraph very "interesting". I have written back to the Court today by recorded delivery and here is my letter:
"Dudley Magistrates Court 11 Chelworth Road

THIS IS NOT A PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL COMMUNICATION
I have to say I am somewhat shocked at the content of your letter of 29th October, 2018 particularly the final paragraph.
“I” do not “say” the application was received by the Court. This is what District Judge Jonas told me in open court on 13th October! He said the CPS application had been made on 25th September and somehow lost by the Court!
I am assuming that you are not accusing the District Judge of lying? It seems to me that DJ Jonas was told this and he could have only received that information from Court staff or from the CPS. Where did he get the date “25th September” from for the alleged application?
I had three witnesses available to give live evidence on 13th October plus myself of course. This is all tremendously stressful for me. I understand from your website that I am entitled to have a senior manager review my complaint and I wish for that to now happen.

Someone is telling porkies here. But who?
The mysterious Mr Carroll (no relation to Sandwell treasure Ian and which my archivist believes is a troll account anyway) has stopped following Mr Hipkiss's troll account and so the ONLY follower is, once again, the original one, Mr Jan Britton!
