Today at Tameside Magistrates Court Roy West from Dukinfield was convicted of racially aggravated harassment. Roy West offered no evidence in his defence. He was convicted following a complaint from a neighbour. The neighbour who made the complaint is a German national and is the same person who previously had Mr West convicted on an identical charge.
At least two Labour councillors, one a senior cabinet member were in the court as Mr West was convicted. According to an eye witnessed the two Labour councillors were smirking throughout the proceedings.
Readers are asked to bear in mind that prior to these two convictions Roy West was a man of impeccable character with no criminal record.
It is my personal view that Roy West is the victim of a witch hunt carried out by the local political establishment and their cohorts following his courageous actions in exposing corrupt methods used by the political establishment in the borough of Tameside.
Mr West has now been convicted twice of crimes that in my opinion are not crimes - namely name calling.
Never has Mr West been accused of violence or threats of violence, both convictions were purely through uncorroborated accusations of words being used that a German national may find offensive.
Regardless of your personal like or dislike of Roy West or his political leanings I urge all defenders of democracy to study closely the methods used in gaining these two convictions. The timeline of events is the key to unravelling the more sinister aspects of the establishment sponsored persecution of this man. Also do bear in mind that Mr West faces yet another court case brought by a senior member of the Tameside political establishment.
To summarise: Roy West lived his life free from criminal conviction for over forty years. Within two years of the launch of his political career he had gained a criminal conviction over what was in my opinion a non-crime. At every stage of proceedings the dark hand of the local political establishment has been lurking in the back ground. It is Roy West in the dock today, who will his persecutors caste their all seeing eye upon next?
