Top City PR Man Julian Bosdet, a senior director of of slimey and evil spinners Abchurch - PR of choice to China frauds on AIM and employer of many a posh but dim upper class twit - is on unconditional bail as he attempts to wriggle off a charge of driving his Range Rover back to his Country pile while well over the limit. His defence is based on attacking the fine and honourable men and women of the Avon & Somerset Police.
Bosdet, of Gentle Street, Warminster, pleaded not guilty to a charge that on August 5 at Marston Lane in Frome he drove a Range Rover after consuming excess alcohol. Somerset Magistrates in Yeovil were told that the PR spinner was breathalysed and allegedly produced a reading of 55mcg of alcohol in 100ml of breath. The legal limit is 35mcg of alcohol.
But Bosdet says that the Old Bill have got it all wrong. He told the Court that the fuzz had not given him statutory warnings and he also questioned the reliability of the breathalyser machine. The case has been adjourned to September 27 to allow ther Fuzz time to disclose full evidence to the defence.
Just suppose the fuzz can prove that full warnings were given? What would that make Bosdet? And if it comes down to the word of fine upstanding officers of the law versus a PR spinner whose firm has made a killing acting on behalf of Chinese frauds who would you believe?
The temptation to head on down to Yeovil magistrates court on September 27 to cheer on our heroic boys and girls in blue is growing.
And I end with an adapted joke from the 1980s. Q. What is the difference between a hedgehog and a Range Rover meandering its way back to Old Timbers, Gentle Street, Horningsham, Warminster, Wiltshire? A. With the hedgehog the pricks are on the outside. Boom Boom.
Maybe I shall see you in Court PR bitchez!
