FAILED National Front Liverpool mayoral candidate Peter Tierney will not be prosecuted over an alleged public order offence, the BBC have reported.

The 55-year-old, of High Street, Hale village, was one of four people arrested outside a sex grooming trial on May 1. They were accused of refusing to remain within a legally-designated protest zone in Derby Square.

The CPS said the case was dropped due to a lack of evidence.

Charges were also dropped against Philip Marriot, 54, of Rangemoor Road, Allerton; Andrew Tierney, 46 of Oakfield Grove, Huyton, and Karen Otty, 38, of Sleepers Hill, Anfield.

From the Liverpool Echo . Report by John. Siddle. 30.08.12.

Editorial. Here at Liveraf we hate to prejudge the evidence, or to use worn out cliches like “A black day for British justice”, until the full facts have been made available. Unfortunately, however, the brevity of this report does not give us much to go on. Even so, considering the number of witnesses who must have seen the event, plus the notorious intransigence of certain of the arrestees, plus the fact that the whole debacle must have been recorded on CCTV, the police decision not to prosecute simply beggars credulity. Is this yet another instance of fascists with friends in high places?
