However, before the start of it, I was unwell.
Yesterday whilst still unwell, I slipped in the shower and ended up in Accident & Emergency.
There is only so much the human body can take, mentally and physically, and I’ve fought Scotland Yard for justice since my diagnosis with depression in 2009 to do with racism and homophobia within the Force.
Although I am striving for accountability within the Met because of its hatred and treatment towards people like me who are black and gay, my health and well-being has to be my first priority. Yesterday, was a HARD (literally) lesson.
It is because of this that, the court has adjourned proceedings to recommence in June of this year.
This allows me enough time to rest and recover, and prepare mentally for what will be from what I have already seen, a brutal and bruising third trial against London’s biggest employer.
I say it often, as it is sometimes hard to believe that … I have already been through a six-week trial, where racism and homophobia was proven within the MPS and it was proven that they leaked my personal data to The Sun newspaper of News International. The Commissioner then appealed this judgment, which had ruled that the Met Police had committed unlawful acts against me because of my race and sexual orientation.
I then went through an appeal trial only last year, where, a High Court Judge upheld the first judge’s ruling.
And finally, I end up in a third court after the Commissioner sacked “me” for discrediting the Police Service and bringing it into disrepute. Me, the person who highlighted racism and homophobia in the first place.
I guess, given the pressures placed upon me, it was only a matter of time before things took their toll.
Hopefully, I will get back to a place where I am able to continue My Fight for Justice against the Metropolitan Police on an equal footing in June of this year and be able to prove once more that the Force has learned nothing about combating racism, homophobia, disability discrimination and corruption within the ranks.
Most worrying, many of these from those who are meant to “lead” the Force.
It is baffling, to say the least.
Take care, and see you soon x
