Those of you with long memories may recall the story I published, last June, about Sam Brown and the police horse.
One night in May Sam Brown, a student celebrating the end of his finals at Oxford, happened upon a mounted police officer.
For reasons best known to himself, he asked as to whether the horse was gay.
Being a good student, when not receiving a satisfactory answer, he repeated the question a few times.
The police were not amused, and despite trying to apologise Brown found himself "nicked" for making homophobic comments. The full story can be read on "Is Your Horse Gay?"
Anyhoo, last week Sam had his day in court; can you believe that Nanny tried to prosecute him for this?
Needless to say, the magistrates thought that the case was utter bollocks and threw it out. Seemingly there was not enough evidence to prove that Mr Brown was disorderly.
Nanny, of course, refuses to admit that she was wrong. Thames Valley police reiterated that he made "homophobic comments".
The horse was unavailable for comment.
