On the same day a report was published showing a 40-year-old female bank worker walking free from court after being convicted of stealing over £30,000 from vulnerably elderly people’s bank accounts (one has Alzheimer’s, another is blind) – see earlier blog piece -we have this nonsense.
His defence claims the contact was an accident. From the article:
Lee Turner, prosecuting, read a statement from the air stewardess and said Thompson told her she was very pretty and that he loved her.
Her statement said: ‘He was looking at me as if I was a piece of meat.’
How, precisely, would one look at a woman as if she were a piece of meat? I’m not conscious of having a lascivious expression when I look at my Sunday roast. And is she implying that he’s in the habit of telling pieces of meat they’re pretty, and he loves them?
