Magistrate who convicted Webbe released neo-nazi because he’d get good A-levels

Paul Goldspring released 17yo Brevik fan who downloaded terror manuals – because teachers said he could get A-grades

The magistrate who convicted Labour MP Claudia Webbe in an ‘atrocious’ verdict based on what appears from court transcripts to be the flimsiest of evidence released a 17-year-old neo-nazi who had downloaded terror manuals and ‘idolised’ Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik – because teachers said he might get good grades in his A-levels.

Paul Goldspring let the youth walk free, despite a history of nazi salutes and memes praising Breivik, saying:

You clearly work very hard in school and are very, very intelligent.

The offender had been arrested in December 2019 by counter-terror officers.

Close associates of Ms Webbe, who appears to have been convicted on the testimony of her accuser that she threatened her fiancé’s woman ‘friend’ with acid by text and to have made multiple phone calls – despite no text and only one recorded call being produced in evidence according to the court transcripts – plans to appeal the conviction, even though the process carries additional risks.

Shamefully, rather than stand by an MP whose suffering of domestic abuse and gaslighting was uncontested at least until the appeal process is completed, Labour’s right-wing regime immediately took the opportunity to publicly state that she should resign her seat.

Anti-black racists have already begun attacking Ms Webbe on Twitter in the vilest and most threatening terms.
