Sergeant Delroy Smellie Charged With G20 Assault

7864484SERGEANT Delroy Smellie is to be charged with assaulting Nicola Fisher at the G20 demonstration in London.

Yeah, Smellie. Oh, nominative determinism.

The G20 summit has long stopped being about politics, and now exists only for the media as a chance for the uniformed police and banner waving poverty fans – hoods up, kids – to go for it in scenes missing from our TV screens since all-seater stadia erupted all over football.

A spokesperson says:

“The CPS reviewed a file of evidence provided by the Independent Police Complaints Commission following their investigation into Ms Fisher’s allegation.

“A summons has been served on PS Smellie who will appear at City of Westminster Magistrates Court on 16 November 2009.”

Fisher alleges that she was struck as she walked to a vigil for Ian Tomlinson, the newspaper seller who had died the previous day, after he was batoned by police.

The G20 – it’s like the Premier League in black and white…
