Judge’s Comments Mirror This Blog’s Position from day one!
a strange day _ don’t normally do mornings but today I was up early and left home at 07:45hrs.for Velindre Hospital Cardiff, my first call transferred to their care!
I was early for my 09:00hrs. appointment with Nuclear Medicine where I was injected with a radio active isatope! As if we aren’t getting enough from Japan. Then a two hour wait and the only paper was The Guardian, what garbage there is little wonder why they lost so many £Millions last year if that was a typical days effort!
Then a blood sample every hour on the hour for 3 hours! So that will check my kidney function.
On getting back – thanks for the calls on the answer phone and I checked Google for the outcome of the sad case of Justin Adams.
Earlier today it seems Justin Adams was predictably found guilty of threats to kill in Oxford Crown Court.
As this blog has stated consistently it was a sad case and there was clearly a mental health issue that underpinned the case and I still maintain that it was poorly handled heaping grief upon woe by use of courts!
You will remember I reported my earlier conversations with Justin Adams at the time and also his comments that Nigel Farage’s behaviour during the emergency prior to the crash, in which he had known their position was not good and they were likely to crash at around stall spead of something a little under 50mph., Justin Adams had stated that Nigel Farage’s behaviour had been exemplary keeping calm and quiet throughout responding clearly to questions and instructions.
Well done Nigel – for a change showing a spark of leadership ability. May I also congratulate Justin Adams for heaping praise where it was clearly due when at the time he had lost his livelihood, his plane, his home, his wife, his child and his heath.
The entire debacle shows just how badly our Justice system and our health system serves our people that this very clear case of a mental health issue was not properly dealt with as a mental health issue and became blown out of all proportions by clearly insensitive handling when a man in a chronic state mentally, emotionally and medically can not be helped but is ‘Banged Up’ from the end of November until well into May when sentence will be passed.
How can this in any caring society be seen as Justice?
You will note:
The Honourable Mr Justice Saunders adjourned sentencing until the week commencing 9 May, pending a pre-sentence report.
Remanding Adams in custody, he said he was “clearly extremely disturbed” at the time the offences happened.
He added: “He is a man who does need help. If I can find a way of giving him help, I will.”
I was glad to see that even the Judge agrees with this blog and is seeking help for Justin Adams – guilty as he may well be technically.
There is little doubt that in terms of publicity Nigel Farage has been able to milk this one to great effect all be it in a quite bizarre and delusional way at times – well it is after all a mental health issue 😉
May I suggest anyone who doubts my judgement reads the comments of pond life like Mick McGough, Skeptyk, Annabelle Fuller or the comments on the articles regarding Justin Adams in the media posted by UKIP supporters that show the party in its true light!
Nigel Farage death threats crash pilot guiltyA pilot has been convicted of threatening to kill UKIP leader Nigel Farage following a plane crash.A jury found Justin Adams guilty of making five threats relating to Mr Farage and crash investigator Martin James after the accident in May 2010.Oxford Crown Court heard a telephone call between a police handler and a man calling himself Justin Adams who claimed to have a 9mm pistol.Adams, 46, of Faringdon, Oxfordshire, denied the five charges.Both Mr Farage and Adams were injured in the light aircraft crash on 6 May, the day of the 2010 general election, after it nose-dived to the ground while towing a campaign banner in Northamptonshire. They were both taken to hospital.Sentencing was adjourned until the week commencing 9 May.
‘Extremely disturbed’Remanding Adams in custody, Mr Justice Saunders said the defendant was “clearly extremely disturbed” at the time the offences happened.He added: “He is a man who does need help. If I can find a way of giving him help I will.”Mr Farage said after the verdict: “From beginning to end, this is a very, very sad case indeed.“It’s been my belief all the way through that what Mr Adams needs is help and I don’t really believe from our mental health services that he’s received that.”The court heard Adams said he had received media offers to talk about the crash, but it had been suggested to him by Mr Farage that he should not speak until after the conclusion of the investigation in his favour.He claimed friends later informed him Mr Farage was “generating PR as a result of the crash”.The court heard threats were intended to make those receiving them fear they would be carried out.Within the conversation between the police call handler and the man calling himself Justin Adams in November last year, he was heard to say: “I know where they live, they destroyed my life.”
‘No other way’He later added: “I now have a 9mm pistol, I’ve got the means – I will take them out and then myself.”Continue reading the main story

Adams told the operator he had lost his livelihood, house, wife and child in the wake of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) investigation, the court heard.Giving evidence in his defence, Adams told the jury that after the crash his mental health had been “rapidly spiralling downhill”, as his business and personal relationship deteriorated.He said he felt he was not receiving the help he needed and made the threats “in the belief and hope I would get put inside”.“I could see no other way,” he said.“I made a decision to make these threats purely to get assistance.”
