Pensioner Jailed for Serving Mince Pies During Lockdown (Crazy) Suffers Heart Attack in Prison

Pensioner Jailed for Serving Mince Pies During Lockdown (Crazy) Suffers Heart Attack in Prison

From MSM / Daily Express…

A72-year-old has been hospitalised following a heart attack he suffered in prison. Maurice Snelling was jailed for perverting the course of justice having been discovered serving mince pies during lockdown.

According to ChesireLive, he has reportedly been handcuffed to his hospital bed and refused visitors. Maurice Snelling broke coronavirus lockdown rules by serving wine and mince pies at Cloudside Shooting Club near Congleton.

At the time Staffordshire was under the government’s Tier 3 Covid-19 restrictions, unlike the neighbouring county of Cheshire.

Mr Snelling had tried to argue that his club was in Cheshire, however, he tried to destroy evidence and was told it was unlikely he didn’t know the club was in Staffordshire as he’d lived in the area for 30 years and his bins were emptied by Staffordshire Moorlands District Council.

As a result of his deceit, he was jailed earlier this month for a sentence of six months.

The court was told Snelling’s health had recently been in decline, and he had suffered multiple heart attacks prior to being sentenced. It’s understood he has now had another heart attack since being jailed and has had to be taken to hospital for treatment.

A representative of Cloudside said he wasn’t allowed any visitors and that he was being handcuffed to his hospital bed.

A statement from the club stated: “We have been informed that Mr Maurice Snelling, aged 72, suffered a heart attack sometime on Sunday 13th November 2022.”

They added: “Mr Snelling has had ongoing heart health issues and two previous heart attacks and was on a waiting list for a heart operation when convicted.

“Mr Snelling is to undergo heart surgery at an undisclosed hospital and is not allowed to receive any visitors.

“After recovering from surgery, Mr Snelling will be returned to prison to complete his sentence. The club has no further statement at this time.”

Editor writes…

We have idiotic “green” protesters destroying artwork in galleries and endangering lives by blocking roads in London and they have the police enquiring if they need anything, just ask.  At one site, the cops served refreshments!  As if that’s not incredible enough, we have the man pictured at the top of this page – former Health Minister, Matt Hancock – who was a lockdown and restrictions zealot – himself caught breaking the rules; it took time for him to resign so they (Boris & Co.) were clearly hoping that the fuss would die down and it would be back to the new normal, i.e. one rule for the likes of Johnson & Hancock and another rule for Maurice Snelling and the rest of us.  Not only did Hancock not end up in jail, but he’s currently participating in the crackpot anything-but-reality-TV show “I’m a Celebrity get me out of here”.  So, he’s making big bucks out of his time in Government ruling over us all with totalitarian glee.

It’s almost beyond belief that Maurice Snelling was jailed in the first place, and then handcuffed to a hospital bed, suffering a heart attack… I say “almost” because as I’ve just minimally demonstrated, the courts in the UK are off beam, to put it mildly. “British justice”? Spare us!   Darrell Brooks in the USA has just been sentenced to over 1,000 years for his murderous crime – here he’d have gotten ten years at most, probably out in five.

Why is this nonsensical lockdown IN-justice being allowed to continue?  Isn’t there a prison chaplain, or a hospital chaplain who can raise the alarm about this, the Scandal of Maurice Snelling?   Your thoughts…

    They – the powers-that-be – are not giving up. The tyranny continues.

    And this…

    Prepare for more “Maurice Snellings” to come.

    Boris, Nicola and Keir were all falling over themselves to be seen to be the most China Communist tyrants they could be.
    These useless puppets will not be able to admit they were so wrong as that would be tantamount to a confession of guilt.
    We need real political reform in this country to wash these wicked political puppets from office.

      graeme taylor,

      I couldn’t agree more. We need a total root and branch reform of the political system in the UK.

      This article from Spiked shows the ridiculous thought process these alleged “legal eagles” go through when faced with a simple task that any lay person could do in a heartbeat. Instead of locking up the eco-idiots (and throwing the key away) they spend hours thinking about legal loopholes. It’s one of those “stupid is, as stupid does” things. They really haven’t a clue. They’re living proof that passing exams and getting law degrees doesn’t mean you have common sense.

      Me, too, I agree – we really need a revolution, an uprising but seeing the weak way the population accepted the whole covid scam, I don’t think it’ll happen in my lifetime. A future generation, when they find out that we were once a free people, they’ll rebel. This generation is too busy meekly complying.

    Perverting the course of justice is what got him in so much trouble.There’s a set course of punishment as it’s considered a serious crime. Having said that it seems to me sheer madness that he was arrested in the first place.
    When I worked in a hospital owned and run by religious sisters, we often had patients from a nearby prison. The nuns insisted on the removal of handcuffs and instead ordered prison officers to guard the doors. These were mighty women who had even police officers quaking in their shoes!

    Yes, the hypocrisy of it all! But there is a societal agenda, methinks!

      I am well aware that they used the “perverting the course of justice” excuse to jail him – think about it: perverting the course of justice, i.e., having to think up an excuse and resort to fibbing for making mince pies! For goodness’ sake – and, yes, I’m simplifying the situation but that is because, as you indicate yourself, he should never have been arrested in the first place. I mean, if it were ME being arrested for making mince pies that would be different because I’m liable to burn the place down when I try anything beyond a boiled egg. But honestly. Gimme a break.

      You “got it” with your concluding punch line – there’s a societal agenda all right and it’s to accustom us to seeing people arrested and jailed for annoying the Government.

    The whole point about the “perverting the course of justice” charge is that he wasn’t perverting the course of justice – how was it “just” to force us to keep the draconian rules which half the time we didn’t know whether they were rules, guidance or laws, when they were based on a lie. The lie that Covid was a danger to everyone, when it was not.

    The police, lawyers and judge who perpetrated this injustice against this man, should be charged themselves with crimes against humanity.

    There’s no words to describe the treatment doled out to this pensioner. It’s an outrage. Whoever invented the saying “the law is an ass” was being extremely unkind to those animals.

    Instead of being ashamed that they’ve brought this country to economic ruin by their shocking lockdown policy, these same scoundrel politicians are now claiming expenses to help them pay their energy bills. I wonder what else they are doing behind the scenes to make sure they escape the consequences of their shameless authoritarian behaviour during covid. I’m not giving it a capital letter anymore – I don’t give any other flu a capital letter.

      I had to blink twice when I read that those senior Tories are taking expenses to help pay their energy bills. That is some brass neck.

      I don’t know how this is all going to end but I don’t think it will be pleasant.

    The only ones perverting Real Justice are those like Hancock a well named idiot who couldnt run a gambling school. As for the rest ad like to know of one Honest Politician ,or Honesty in any form from those who tell us not to break the rules . Its criminal to the extreme what these THEIVES will do to honest people . But as you say ED its Jelly and Ice Cream for the Green Protestors. Personally one of these days an honest working man will have had enough, and just run over one of them glued to the road. I know its maybe not Christian of me ,but when it happens [ and it will ] i will say Bravo ,as for the way this poor Man is being treated does it really surprise us, certainly not me .
    BTW while were on Honesty . I checked my Energy IE Gas and Electricity and was astounded at the price so i done a we exercise on Standing Charges . IE Charges before we make a slice of toast .
    Standing Charges in Scotland alone come to Approximately £867Million to the Energy Companies .
    Now lots of those Facilities were installed [ Pre Thatcher days ] when Energy was Nationalised ,meaning its us the Peasants who really own lots of those Facilities . We are being robbed blind by these corrupt Politicians like Hancock ,Boris and the rest of the motley crew who are just upper class Bampots. When the likes of Zelensky is hailed as a Hero by these reprobates we know that were really in for a hard winter. Its being advertised that 50% of Kids in the West of Scotland are living in poverty ,what a sad statistic for the likes of Sturgeon and Harvie. And the worst of it is ,most of these kids have parents who work. Also as Josephine above says these Corrupt Politicians have the cheek to claim Energy expenses. They have absolutely no shame nor integrity.

    Frankly, I don’t know where to begin with this. It’s a cross between tearing strips off the lockdown supporters in and out of government – everybody who went along with it is to blame for the consequences IMHO, or the courts.

    Alex Belfield, Youtuber, got five and a half years for stalking Jeremy Vine (pro-vax BBC radio host) while there are child molesters walking free – the nonsense of plea bargaining must stop. They get their sentence, and they should serve it in full, end of. Link below to one shocking case.

    My heart goes out to Maurice Snelling and TBH anybody who criticises him for what he did – including the nonsense about perverting the course of justice (what justice?) – is not playing with a full deck.

    I meant to say that I’d make an exception to the “must serve full sentence” in the case of the American man in the intro who got over 1,000 years – I’d let him off the hook if he dies before then! LOL!

    Meanwhile back to reality. Our recent 10Week P. M. has pledged £ 50 Million to the Puppet Zelensky and like Bono and all other Celebrities has a Photo with the Great Man himself . Sunak doesnt say if the Money is a loan or if Hes going to give it to Zelensky out of His own pocket and it is for so called Defence Aid . Aye right . Do these High Class Doeballs think that were all thick.
    With the amount of so called useful Idiots who have went to Ukraine for a Photo with Zelensky .It makes me think that President Putin isnt really too keen to Nuke Kieve or to give it its stage name Kyiv. With all the Guys and Gals that have now went to see Zelensky in Ukraine it must surely be one of the safest Cities in the World.
    But one never knows ,maybe the great Man Zelensky himself will ask Sunak to pardon Mr Snelling. My God but are we on here the only ones in The U.K. that believes this Ukraine thing doesnt smell right .
    Or are we just being Obtuse ?

      That is a good Video by Neil Oliver but is it really anything that we do not know . Just in case any on here do not know ,their is a Cruise Ship sitting 0ff Leith Docks where Illegal Immigrants are put up . Now read that it is a [ Cruise Ship ] with all the luxuries and none of the fear of hitting an Iceberg in the middle of the Atlantic. Whose paying for this Sturgeon Luxury to Immigrants , us of course . I spoke to a contractor who owns a Firm that does LOTS of work on this Cruise Ship . To say that His Home which is paid by this Gift to Illegal Immigrants is worth at least
      £ 400.000 is at best a liberal guess. I wonder if said Immigrants have to, do or pay anything for Energy Costs on this floating Luxury Hotel . Nah again am just being obtuse. My Laptop is nearly out of Power and my Energy Cards are running low. So its Toodle oo The Noo from me to You. My God but this Country would now gie yie the Boak .

    I came across this quote from St Francis de Sales, and I thought I’d post it here since we probably could all use some spiritual thoughts after that dreadful budget statement this week and the news that the whole covid thing is not going away. That poor pensioner, Maurice Snelling, breaks my heart. For doing some so minor, he ends up spending six months in prison and then humiliated by being handcuffed to a hospital bed after a heart attack. It really does beggar belief. It’s like I remember thinking during lockdown when neighbours were reporting each other for breaking the rules, it’s like they’ve lost all sight of what it means to be human. It’s very sad and very shocking. I hope this quote helps.

    “Do not fear what may happen tomorrow. The same loving Father who cares for you today will care for you tomorrow and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering, or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace, then, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginings.” (Saint Francis de Sales)

      The St Francis quote is a timeous reminder that we should never allow ourselves to fall into depression, or despair. Our Lord has assured us that He will be with His Church until the end of time, and with reference to the current crisis-cum-apostasy, Our Lady has promised that, in the end, her Immaculate Heart will triumph.

      That’s why, as the great saints have taught us, there should always be peace and true joy in the Christian soul even if there is some superficial disturbance. So, thank you for that reminder. Maybe others will post similar quotes to console our troubled hearts. Here’s my favourite – St Teresa of Avila’s prayer which was put to music… I sing it (for a small fee) when invited to parties 😀

      Let nothing trouble thee,
      Or ere affright thee.
      All things, all things pass away.
      When you are troubled,
      In any way,
      Just remember, all things pass away…..

      God never changes, like you and me,
      He always has been, always will be,
      God alone suffices,
      He alone suffices,
      To fill our hearts,
      Through all eternity.

      Let nothing trouble thee (etc – repeat verse).*

      We will now stand a sing twenty verses of Faith of our Fathers 😀

      * To repeat the verse, there is an additional fee 😀
