“Jacqueline Woodhouse, 42, abused passengers on the Central Line train and was given a 21 week jail sentence
…She turns to her passengers and asks: ‘Where do you come from? Where do you come from? Where do you come from?
‘I would like to know if any of you are illegal? I am sure like 30 per cent of you are.’
She then turns on the Pakistani man sitting next to her, who is singing his national anthem, and threatens to ‘punch him in the face.’
‘I wouldn’t mind if you loved our country,’ she adds.
…Rebecca Lee, defending Woodhouse, said she was ‘deeply ashamed’ of her behaviour but claimed she was often anxious on the tube due to terrorist events of 2005.
Ms Lee asked that a community order be considered and stressed her client would be willing to attend a diversity awareness and prejudice training course.“
This woman is not my hero. She acted like a lout. So what? Why is that the law’s business?
