You Couldn't Make It Up No.19

Let's get this right. A man appeared in court yesterday accused of racially abusing his own mother. According to the Scotsman Scott Garment, 21, is charged with acting in a racially aggravated manner referring to his mother Catherine as a "n****r". His partner Kerry Dickson, 25, faces a similar charge. She is alleged to have called Mrs Garment a "black b*****d." However, their trial at Selkirk Sheriff Court was adjourned yesterday after Mrs Garment, failed to appear and a warrant was issued for her arrest.

First of all it's a domestic and you wonder if every argument that took place in every home, in which threats or abuse was used, came to court how busy our courts would be. And now police time has to be further wasted because the woman who was abused didn't appear in court. We've turned into a nation of time-wasters where everyone thinks that there's a law that they can use in their favour. No doubt whatever the outcome one party will take the case to the High Court and hire Cherie Blair because their human rights have been abused in some way or another.

Unbelieveable! As you say, we could all end up in court when we have a domestic argument!

My mother has racially abused me, by this logic.

She has said sometimes 'Its youir Irish blood', not being Irish herself.

Should I sue?
