"Louise - Nicholas - is - My - Hero. Who is Louise Nicholas?" The kid who had been reading my patch was seven, and I didn't know how to answer him. I didn't know how many of the concepts I'd have to explain. So I just said that some police officers had hurt her, and she'd fought against them.
I have so much to say in response to today's evidence in the John Dewar trial:
Mrs Nicholas told Dewar [Clint Rickards, Bob Schollum and Brad Shipton] had "treated me like an animal".But first I need to say how awed I am by Louise Nicholas's strength.
"You're not the only one," Dewar replied.
