Former MP's Friend Not Very Helpful In Court
Former Labour MP Helen Clark (Peterborough, Cambridgeshire) is in the soup for some things she allegedly said to a barmaid. You know things are probably not going well when your "friend" testifies ...
"I felt she had had a lot to drink. I felt she was out of control. In my opinion I thought Helen had had too much to drink."Thanks, friend. As reported in The Herald, here's what the prosecutor alleges Ms. Clark said to barmaid Susana Arsalani after Ms. Arslani refused to serve her any more alcohol:
"Why am I treated like a cunt?"; "Who's the bitch giving orders?"; "You calling me drunk?" [expletive reinserted]
She said Clark had also said: "Don't patronise me... fuck off."; "The bitch couldn't speak English who's denying to serve me."; "You bitch, you can't even speak English."[expletive reinserted]Lovely. Ms. Clark was charged with being drunk and disorderly and using threatening words and behavior. Here's the source.
