“History repeats for me, but facts don’t care about their feelings … The truth will come out”. Ah, it’s THE TROOF again, that creative reinterpretation of reality known only to Lennon. What he was not telling his adoring followers - those who are prepared to search him out on fringe social media sites, as he’s been banned elsewhere - was what had happened.
Lennon’s legal representatives had been contacted by Lizzie Dearden of the Independent, who, as normal journalistic practice dictates, had given him notice that she was about to publish a series of claims about The Great Man. His response was all too predictable.
As he did with the student who took the piss out of him, as he did with Mike Stuchbery, as he did with an SNP MP, and, yes, as he did with me, Lennon somehow got hold of Ms Dearden’s address - one day we’ll find out how he keeps on being fed that information - and turned up there. With his pal. In the black Range Rover. Despite his being skint.
We know what happened next, as there was a court hearing yesterday where Lennon - at long last, Police people - was handed a temporary stalking prevention order regarding his pursuit of Ms Dearden and her partner Samuel Partridge. Press Gazette had more.
“The court heard Robinson went to their home in south-east London on 17 January … Ryan Dowding, representing the Metropolitan Police, said Robinson arrived at around 9.50pm with another person in a black Range Rover and began buzzing the building’s intercom … He asked Dearden and Partridge to ‘come down to talk’ and tried to get into the building when they refused, but was stopped by security, he said”. There was more.
“Dowding told the court: ‘He could be heard shouting very loudly words to the effect of, ‘Samuel, I know you’re inside. Come out and we’ll sort this out. We’ll be back every day if we have to’ … He said the person inside the Range Rover was honking the horn and shining the headlights onto the building on full beam as Robinson shouted: ‘There’s a paedophile living in this building’”. The old Lennon paedophile smear ploy. And more.
“Robinson, who was arrested over the incident, later posted two pictures of Partridge online before sending an email to Dearden purporting to comment on her story about him, in which he falsely claimed to have a source who said Partridge had groomed a child, the court heard”. Would Sir care to have another defamation action launched against him?
Lennon calling “liar” on others while lying through his teeth. As he has been doing, and getting away with, for years. Now, at long last, the cops have done the right thing. Lennon’s little Wild West Show has run out of road. And not even his pals in the mainstream press - hello Spectator magazine - are prepared to humour him this time.
There are limits to Stephen Lennon’s grifting thuggery. Just rejoice at that news.
