Hi,

having known Michael Shrimpton ever since I was asked some 15 years ago to collect him from the station and deliver him to a Ukip Bristol meeting as the speaker I have taken an interest in him.

Michael has been well aware over the years that I saw him as being an amusing diversion and as barki9ng mad as they come when it had anything to do with  his fantasies and conspiracy theories.

I had never socialised with him beyond using him as divesrsion and comic relief at various meetings, until his return from Australia, save one meal with him when he came to Chepstow for my advice on disposing of his books, before fleeing the country when his business collapsed.

I have followed the case below in some detail as he made the phone calls from my home when Lee and I took pity on him as he was homeless and trying to get back on his feet!

Finally he found a flat and as we had surplus furniture we gave it to him to start anew, and so that he would eventually leave having overstayed his welcome considerably!

At one stage it became apparent he had been making more of a fool of himself than we had thought, when the police arrived here unannounced in the quaint belief that we might have been a part of his fantasy plot – a notion which was soon dispelled!

That said I can not for a moment see that justice has been done in this case nor can it be seen to be done in my opinion.

Michael Shrimpton needs help and not punishment – I can not disagree with the Judge when he stated that

‘Shrimpton was not just a harmless eccentric but a menace’

but many in our society are a menace, were they all to be put in prison the system would collapse!

Shrimpton’s sentence being custodial is staggeringly harsh for a case which is clearly one of mental health – Shrimpton is beyond any doubt delusional but there is little doubt that he believes his delusions – his life is a delusion for heaven’s sake and I see encaceration of such an unfortunate as a travesty of justice.

Not only will Michael Shrimpton be incarcerated but he will never again be able to practice as a barrister, a job he loved and in most instances did with due dilligence and effectively for his clients.

It was Shrimpton’s private life that was both chaotic and founded on fantasies poor man.

Michael Shrimpton will as a result of this sentence loose his income source and is clearly inelligible for retraining when he leaves prison at 58 and will thus face a life on benefits, such a prick to his ego and personna that I would be unsurprised to read of his suicide!

To add to his punishment he will never again see his parents, who are both elderly and infirm, unable to travel and living in Australia with his younger brothers and sisters – none of whom will he see again!

To my untrained and unqualified opinion I incline to the belief that Shrimpton has complex mental health issues largely based on the ‘autism’ scale, which would explain his ineptitude at relationships and making friends of any value. That he had managed to put himself through university and qualify as a barrister holding down the job and building his career in the face of the loadings against him is a tribute to his determination.

That Shrimpton succumbed to his own fantasies of personal importance and invented the character of some sort of intelligence operative is unsurprising – It is help Michael Shrimpton needs and not punishment!

That Shrimpton had deluded himself into the belief that he had pornography either as part of an investigation he invented or planted on him is both unsurprising and also of no significance in the custodial sentence as it was crime he had already been punished for.

Let us not forget that 1,000s of details of individuals who had purchased and circulated paedophile porn as supplied under The Ore Operation – just howmany were investigated and even of those only a tiny percentage were sentenced. Let us not overlook the consistent failure of police to effectively investigate and prosecute in case after case, yet here is a man who would seem to be being persecuted and punished rather than treated and helped!

I do not believe, yet again, that we as citizens can take any pride or satisfaction in this misapplication of justice.

Jail for pervert barrister who said nuclear bomb would blow up the Queen at the London Olympics

A barrister who made a high-level hoax call saying a nuclear bomb was poised to blow up the Queen at the London 2012 Olympics has been jailed.

Michael Shrimpton, 57, of Jusons Glebe, Wendover, was found guilty last year and today he was sentenced to 12 months at Southwark Crown Court.

On April 19 2012, Shrimpton contacted the office of the Defence Secretary Philip Dunne, and David Lidington MP claiming a nuclear warhead had been placed in London, possibly near to a hospital to be detonated at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games.

He claimed that intelligence had been blocked from being passed through official channels because the Germans had infiltrated MI5, MI6 and GCHQ.

Both offices say they thought the calls were a hoax, but they had to be passed to the Olympic Security Team and the police due to the nature of the threat.

The court heard that Shrimpton is a self-appointed intelligence expert who suggested a sinister German intelligence agency was responsible for this plot to blow up the opening ceremony of the London Olympics.

Shrimpton had come to the attention of various police forces over the years and following the London terrorist attacks in July 2005, he earned himself the official label of ‘an intelligence nuisance’.

He was described by the prosecution counsel as an “unrelenting networker, desperate to associate himself with persons in real power and influence, and using any even marginal association with such people to bolster his credibility with other such people”.

On handing down the 12 month sentence HHJ Judge McCreath said: “I must have regard to the very clear risk of disruption which Mr Shrimpton must have recognised when he made the false reports.

“This is a case that cries out for immediate custody, it is impossible for me to suspend the sentence in this case, however I am prepared to take a merciful approach.”

Last year Shrimpton, who says he legally advised General Pinochet in the nineties, failed in his appeal against a conviction for possesing indecent images of children.

He said that images of young boys found on a computer memory stick were put there by secret service agents, and that he was the victim of a government stitch-up.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Andrew Mottau, from the South East Counter Terrorism Unit, said: “The nature of such a claim had to be taken very seriously, despite it transpiring to be a hoax.

“This incident could have caused enormous disruption at a time of heightened tension and resulted in the diversion of valuable resources.

“I hope today’s sentence serves as a reminder that wasting police time is a serious offence and anyone who does it can expect to be robustly dealt with.

“I would like to thank the large number of witnesses in this case, their support cannot be understated and their testimony was vital in securing this conviction.”

Adrian Foster, Chief Crown Prosecutor for Thames and Chiltern Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said: “This case involved the making of two bomb hoaxes on 19 and 20 April 2012 relating to the London 2012 Olympics when preparations for the Games were at an advanced stage.

“During the hoaxes Michael Shrimpton passed extraordinary and dramatic information about a threatened nuclear attack on the Games to senior authority figures. Although the information passed was outlandish and fanciful, there was a great deal of national tension in the months preceding the Games and it would have been foolish to reject or ignore the threats, especially when made by a professional man.

“Shrimpton is a barrister with a fascination for politics, the military and intelligence. The bomb hoaxes were not so much an attempt to cause disruption, but a mechanism to gild his self-constructed reputation as an intelligence expert. However, the imparting of such false information had the potential to cause enormous disruption, diversion of scarce resources, and wasted public money.

“Shrimpton represented himself during the trial and pleaded not guilty to the offences claiming he acted in good faith to pass on the information from his ‘sources’ and did so without malice or intent. However, he was found guilty by a jury on 25 November 2014, of two counts of communicating false information with intent after a two week trial at Southwark Crown Court.

“Due to the hard work and dedication of the prosecution team a just outcome has been achieved and Michael Shrimpton, who is not just a harmless eccentric, but a menace has today been sentenced accordingly.”
