Great News!

Filed under: Uncategorized — madaxeman @ 12:01 pm

I’ve just heard that Paul Chambers, the man convicted in what I view as a miscarriage of justice of threatening to blow up Robin Hood Airport, and his girlfriend Sarah Tonner are to be married.

The #TwitterJokeTrial has been a relentless series of crushing disappointment after crushing disappointment, so it’s nice to be able to sit back and reflect that at least something positive has come of the whole sorry affair. And what a something!

I can’t claim to be a close friend of either Sarah or Paul, but I’ve met them both on a couple of occasions (court hearings), and they’re both really decent, down to earth folks. They’ve already had more stress, worry and hardship in their lives than most people would encounter throughout a marriage, and they haven’t even gotten started yet.

I, together with most on the “right side” of the #TwitterJokeTrial, wish both of them all the luck in the world – and doubt they’ll need it. They’ve been living “us against the world” for a while, and that tends to bring people closer together. It’s also a lot easier to think someone will stand by you when they’ve just spent 18 months doing exactly that, through thick and thin…

Congratulations to the both of you – and a long, happy, and thoroughly deserved life together…
