To the United Kingdom Defence Association (& British Forces News):

November 16, 2011
Over the last few days there has been much spoken & written of ‘the debt the nation owes’ to those who served on the Arctic Russian Convoys of World War II  (see attachment for last moments of Scharnhorst battle).  Apparently there are only 200 of them left.  Back in August the Russians gave a great welcome to some of those men who went to Russia to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the first of the convoys.  While they being feted, they did not give a damn about one of their ‘Shipmates’ who, at the age of 85, had been sentenced to six months in the ‘Hell-Hole’ known as Armley Gaol(six months at 85 is equal to 15-20 years for a younger man).    SUPPOSEDLY for ‘Contempt of Court’, it was really to silence him & prevent him writingANOTHER book exposing the all too many rotten apples in the judiciary.    There came not a word of protest from the ‘watchdogs’ of the so-called ‘News Media’, nor indeed from those millions who would soon be buying poppies to show their gratitude’(???) to men like him!   It was left to other people from around the world, USA, Canada, Australia, Germany – even Prime Time Russian TV – to express outrage at this diabolical treatment, & thus obtain his early release after ‘only’ seven weeks.   However, the sadistic judge who imposed the original savage sentence had not done with him yet:   He recruited West Yorkshire Police, who entered into a conspiracy with those who run the block of  ‘Sheltered'(???) Housing where the old veteran lives.  He tells the story below, with the title, ‘The Foulest Honey Trap Ever!’
IF you at the UKNDA have any respect for those who fought for their country all those years ago, you will be out in force at Leeds Magistrates’ Court at 1.30pm on Thursday 17th November 2011 to see the latest chapter in the CONTINUING persecution of this man, whose ‘crime’ has been to offer leaflets & use a loud hailer!  (& you thought we had free speech?!?!?!)
IF, on the other hand, you decide to stay away, & utter not a word of protest, you are giving carte blanche to an oppressive State, which WILL get worse – as they always do!  Remember Germany in the 1930s?  No, you don’t, but those who ignore history are fated to re-live it.    (Cc to British Forces News)

When sending ‘Foulest Honey Trap Ever!’, I quoted the words of ONE  of the charges against me, thinking the two were much the same.  Yes, they are – apart from one VERY important difference!   The second charge (the most important one) I quote below: 
“… with intent to cause JONATHAN ROSE harassment, alarm, or distress used threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour thereby causing that or another person harassment, alarm or distress and the offence was religiously aggravated within the terms of section 28 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998”  
His ‘Honour'(?) Judge Jonathan Rose is of course the complainant, the Honey Trap was at his instigation – AND HE WILL BE THE MAIN PROSECUTION WITNESS!   I am looking forward to his evidence from the witness box – but looking forward even more to cross-questioning him after he has given it!
Norman Scarth. 
PS:  I have had to raid £1,000 from the money set by to pay for my funeral in order to buy computers for Tracey & myself, to replace the ones stolen by the police.  Tracey hasn’t even been charged with an offence (not even a trumped up one, as with me), yet they are refusing to return her computer.  £1,000 is a lot of money to me, but the information on the stolen ones is MUCH more valuable.  In my case it is beyond price!       
(The original ‘Honey Trap’ message is below, in case anyone hasn’t seen it before.)
Foulest ‘Honey Trap’ ever!  ‘SHELTERED Housing?!?!?!

Wed. 26th October 2011:  c10am, a knock on the door of my Sheltered(?) Housing flat.  I opened it on the chain; pleasant looking young woman said, “My grandmother is moving into the flat next door, but she’s having (unspecified)trouble with the fridge.  Can you help her?”.  “Certainly” said I, “just wait till I’ve put some clothes on instead of my pyjamas”.  I put on shirt, trousers & flip-flop sandal, & walked down the passage.  As I reached the door, ‘Grandma’ showed herself to be not one wolf (as in Red Riding Hood), but FOUR of them who pounced on me & snapped handcuffs on while gabbling something about arresting me for some ridiculous ‘offence’ or other.  They refused to allow me back in my flat to close down my computer, turn off the oven, electrics etc, or get some warmer clothing.  These 5 officers had come 14 miles from Leeds to indulge in this trickery (as when thieving thugs use prostitutes to lure victims to where they can be robbed).  Unbeknown to me they had also sent several officers to arrest Tracey (my honorary niece) who had done nothing more than give me a lift in her car. 

I was then taken to Bradford’s equivalent of Moscow’s Lubyanka & kept there sitting on a hard bench, my ancient spine causing me pain, in solitary (apart from seeing the Duty Solicitor) until midnight, when I was charged with 2 ridiculous ‘offences’ & released on bail to make my own way home, dressed only in trousers, shirt & flip-flop sandals.   Still in shock & very cold, I had to wait 15 minutes for a taxi.  

Worse than the police trickery was that ‘Incommunities Ltd’, the owners of this block of ‘Sheltered’ (?) Housing, had conspired with the police as to how to lure me from my flat, & provided these thugs with access to the next door flat to hide in, then to pounce on me. 

Arriving back home I found they had stolen my computer, mobile phone & other things.  I learned that Tracey had been released after 10 hours, without charge, but her laptop had also been stolen.   

I am to appear at Leeds Magistrates’ Court, room 5 at 1.45pm on Thursday 17th November to answer two charges of “Using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour or disorderly behaviour within the hearing or sight of a person likely to be caused alarm, harassment or distress, thereby, and that the offence was religiously aggravated within the terms of section 28 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998”.    

Only the most TWISTED of minds could use the words ‘religiously aggravated’ because I was telling people of the criminality of ‘Judge’ Jonathan Rose (who happens to be a Jew), when I was one of those who had fought to keep from our shores those who would have sent British Jews to the gas chambers – as they did with French Jews after they had defeated that country! 

It is clear now that when pouncing on me they had no idea what to charge me with: after I had been in the Lubyanka for 9 hours, they said they were going to get on to the Crown Prosecution Service to decide what charges to prefer, & “this will take about 2 hours”!  

My computer having been stolen, a friend has connected me back the Internet with an old, slow, laptop.  My list of email addresses was on the stolen computer, so I do not have all of them now, & ask that you spread this world-wide please.   I am anxious to get this off, but this computer being so slow, I may not send many more for the time being.  

I would have been less shocked if they had used a battering ram to get into my flat rather than the conspiracy with the Warden & owners of this ‘Sheltered’ Housing property.  I am slowly coming back to normal &, with suggestions from other people, think I may be able to beat these malicious charges. 

Many thanks to all my supporters.  As with putting me in prison last time, though bad for me, it may turn out to be the worst thing they could have done from their own point of view, in that the rest of the world will become more aware of the iniquities of Police State Britain.

Prisoner A19O3CF Norman Scarth — Free and Fighting Back!

October 3, 2011

Norman Scarth was jailed on the 26th July 2011 for the ridiculous offence of turning on a small recording device in court. He turned on this device because he didn’t trust the proceedings that were taking place in a court he believes to be corrupt and immoral.

After a vigorous campaign by his friends and supporters, Norman was released on the 9th of September 2011.

On the 27th of September 2011 Norman’s friends and supporters gathered at the Victoria Hotel in Leeds to listen to his story of political activism, his treatment in prison and his hopes and plans for the near future.

Solidarity from Salford

September 17, 2011


FREE NORMAN SCARTH was a campaign setup via social networking to…………FREE NORMAN SCARTH!
People were encouraged to use a picture of Norman Scarth as their profile picture on Facebook, and there were several groups and events setup whilst he was in prison.
I attended the protest outside H.M.P Leeds on 13th August 2011, with some friends and made a video from that day also which is on this same channel 😉
For his hearing at the Royal Courts in London on 25th August I was unable to show solidarity in London and again via social networking (I setup an event called FREE NORMAN SCARTH WEEK 19th – 26th August. Which was pulled by Facebook ironically) we suggested that those who couldn’t make the journey to London? Should stage a protest at their local magistrates courts and upload any pics and vids to Facebook, which we did after our protest outside Salford magistrates Courts. I also have another video on this channel from that day too 😉
We didn’t get the verdict we wanted on 25th August so an appeal hearing was arranged for 9th September 2011. Again I was unable to show solidarity in London, and the optomist in me said he would be released this time! So I thought, where better to be than in Leeds to welcome Norman Scarth back into freedom!
And that’s exactly what we did! 🙂 😀
Norman Scarth is an 85 year old WWII Veteran who was serving a 6 month sentence in H.M.P Leeds for making an audio recording in court.
Norman served on H.M.S Matchless on the arctic convoys (regarded as some of the most dangerous missions of WWII) and for that reason his story was picked up by Russia Today (nice work RT as usual) The same cannot be said for our mainstream media, who failed to pickup this story in either the press or Television, apart from Look North who showed a 2 minute clip on the day.
Norman Scarth is a living legend and in his own words:-
” I fought the Nazis 67 years ago. And I’m still fighting the Nazis today!!”
Norman Scarth has various videos on YouTube and also has his own blog which I am sure will be getting updated very soon and should be well worth a read and should also have a fair few more subscribers after what has gone on!
Normans story is an amazing one, but it is I am afraid only the tip of the iceberg! But this iceberg is going to sink the “justice system” around the World!
All that remains for me to say is….it was a pleasure to be involved in the FREE NORMAN SCARTH Campaign. It was an honour to be among the small group of people outside Armley Jail when Norman was released.
But the icing on the cake was being one of only 5 people who celebrated Normans release with him with a slapup meal, of which I am pleased, proud and priveledged to have been there.
Norman Scarth,,,,,,,,,,,,,we love you!
