Helen’s Trial: Court Report Day 3
The Ambridge Socialist does not have much faith in bourgeois Courts of law but in the absence of another system they are the only ones that offer any hope of justice. Very occasionally they deliver. Usually they don’t.
The Ambridge Socialist is reporting on the Trial of Helen Titchener at Borsetshire Crown Court. Judge Loomis presiding.
We have to rely largely on BBC reports. Unlike some on the left we don’t automatically discount these as partial or biased but we will be keeping a critical eye
Day Three of Helen’s Trial started with the remaining Prosecution witnesses starting with Titchener’s mother Ursula who gave the kind of performance we have come to expect. A thoroughly unpleasant and devious individual.
Pat Archer also gave prosecution testimony which wasnt great. Cross examination by Anna Tregorran was it appears more helpful but the BBC did not report this.
Helen herself then took the stand. Her testimony was dramatic and if there was anybody listening not in tears by the end it would have been Titchener. She outlined exactly what a monster Titchener was and is, including the episodes of marital rape. A brilliant scene by actress Louiza Patikas.
