Roshonara Choudhry and Stephen Timms: If you can't kill your MP...
Ms Choudhry refused to appear at The Old Bailey in person because she does not recognise the jurisdiction of the court.
So she will be sentenced by video-link, and will doubtless be given a lengthy custodial sentence to be passed in a comfortable, internet-equipped, halal-compliant cell...
...from where she will now be able to vote Mr Timms out of office.
You really couldn't make it up.
Frankly, she should have been dragged to the court in handcuffs and forced to stand when the Judge entered.
For a woman who attempted to murder a Member of Parliament?
The 'right' to vote him out of office?
