In a shocking and surprising judgement Crown Court Judge (and clearly artistic philistine) Mr Justice Deeny rejected the almost certain Turner Prize winning Michael Stone’s explanation for his performance art attack on Stormont. Mr. Deeny described Stone as a wholly unreliable and unconvincing witness whose testimony is wholly undeserving of belief. Little wonder Belfast failed to win European City of Culture. Or does this whole episode strengthen Stone’s case for an art prize.
Okay in actual fact, thankfully at least one ghastly murderer from the past is back behind bars where he should always have been kept.
