Wow. I can't believe how stupid and selfish some people can be. She deserves what she got.
'journalist arrested' ... 'has been found guilty' ... 'a warrant has been issued for her arrest'
well which is it?!?
She has been arrested and presumably interviewed and charged.
A court date was probably set and she has failed to appear and been found guilty in her absence.
A warrant would be issued for her arrest so that she can be sentenced.
She wanted a story, but now *she* is the story. So I guess she got her wish in a perverse way.
After that experience she'd certainly appreciate them!
What, take her up helvellyn (not a euphamism), and break her legs? ;-)
why did i read that as "Bum Her"...
Make that Scotland ;)
Is being sent to Scotland the modern day equivalent of being exported to Australia?
I suppose if they chose the midge season....
Oy, nothing wrong with being sent to Aus mate!! Hell of a lot right in fact!!
But I agree with most of the sentiments above, a crew taking her around the back of the bike sheds and slapping some sense into her would seem to be the order of the day!
