I've seen this guy protesting at the main gate watch on stop on for months now. It's easy to dismiss him as an idiot, I certainly did, until an oppo of mine, and his told me the full story. It's not quite as black and white as the story would have you believe.

I don't think I can Finks, sorry. I don't fully understand the legal ramifications. All I'll say he's not the sad weirdo you may think having just read the story.

If he has spent so much time in service and volunteered so much, it does suggest that such actions do have some underlying reasoning. A balanced story would be boring though, may as well portray him as a weirdo to sell some papers

Not my patch so unaware of the background TO refers to, but this concerns me:

Chair of the bench, Celia Kelly, said the bench was sad to see the former officer, dressed in military uniform adorned with his medals, before them.
Serving personnel should not attend any court hearings in uniform. If, as reported, the Defendant was no longer serving, why was he wearing a naval uniform in public? :?

She said: “The issue you have been involved in should not have come to the court room.”
What is unsaid it probably more interesting...

Good lad!
I wonder where they pulled the £1000 worth of damage from, is that to pay some pointy headed dockies £25/ hour, one to get the wets on, one to stand about smoking Rollie's and one to look at the sign with his thumb up its arse!

A similar thought crossed my mind. Additionally;

Perhaps if Guzz stays open for another 300+ years, the Herald might get the hang of the ways of the Navy. I shan't hold my breath, though, on the detail being even noticed.

Without knowing the scale of the clean-up, it's hard to credit the

Plymouth magistrates’ court heard that the graffiti had caused more than £1,000 worth of damage
and

Sugden, of Ferndale Avenue in Weston Mill, admitted three charges of damaging property of an unknown value and two of criminal damage to property valued under £5,000.
I suspect, though, that it would be case study of why Naval kit and support costs so much.
