Following the theme of sacred sites from the last post, it was interesting to hear about Wendy Lewis who has been called ‘Britain’s most disgusting person’ by members of the Royal British Legion. Wendy went on the run today from a court in Blackpool where she was facing prosecution for urinating on a war memorial and then for good measure performing “a sex act” on some nearby drunk guy on a park bench. All of this was caught on one of Britain CCTVs (we have the most cameras per capita of any country). When word of the 32-year-old woman’s antics got round, a group of veteran soldiers waited for Wendy outside court to make their feelings known. However, before her case was called, Wendy fled the court and is currently being sought by police.
This reminds me of the couple who were arrested in an Italian cathedral after parishioners heard groaning coming from the confessional box. When the authorities pulled back the curtain, they found a woman down on her knees, but not in repentance. She was performing “a sex act” on the man whose groaning was due to carnal pleasure rather than moral angst. The couple argued that as atheists, having sex in a church was no different to any other place. However, the church thought that the act was so sacrilegious that a special ceremony would be necessary to purify the box.
Somehow, I don’t think Wendy is going to be let off lightly. If the readers’ comments on the Daily Mail article are anything to go I expect they are going to through the book at her when she eventually turns up. There again… it is the Daily Mail.
