I was talking to Bonnie Woods on Saturday. She was describing what went on in court during her court case. It was as entertaining as hell and illustrates the different attitudes to Scientology of the judicary in the UK as opposed to the US. She described the judge to her as being so nice that the judge told her to raise her hand if she needed help. At one point the judge said that she looked as though she could do with a glass of water and told the usher to "Bring Mrs Woods a glass of water"
and the usher rushed over and did so. He then turned to the clam barrister and shouted "M-O-P-O-C-K" (or whatever his name exactly was).
He was shouting the guy's surname as if he were a vile disease. He then asked Bonnie if she had any concerns. She told him that one of her concerns was that all the legal staff against her were Scientologists.
It turned out that Mopock was a Muslim and was very keen to let her know this. Not able to speak to her directly at the lunchbreak, Mopock managed to get the message to Richard Woods, her husband, that he was a Muslim. When the court resumed, Bonnie raised her hand and the judge asked her what she wanted. She said she would like to apologise to Mr Mopock by saying he was a Scientologist when in fact he was a Muslim.
The judge then said loudly - "Well now we know. WE WOULDN'T WANT TO TAR HIM WITH T*H*A*T B*R*U*S*H WOULD WE". And the trial went on.
Why don't you clams try to sue me for the flyers I distribute in the UK?
