"One girl was clearly upset by what was going on."
"I was shocked," said Andrew Shandy, giving evidence for the prosecution. "There I was, just about to shoot my bolt, and suddenly this excruciating noise started up. It startled everyone. At first I thought someone had got a little bit too enthusiastic with the noshing, but then I realised the screeching was vaguely in tune and made out the words truth and beautiful. The last thing you want at an event like that is Paloma's brand of nasal bird scaring."
The court heard that the singer had mistakenly turned up at the Blowjobs in the Park (incorporating Cunnilingus in the City) cheese, wine and fellatio picnic bonanza believing it to be the adjacent Radio 2 Party in the Park concert. Rather than make a swift exit, and despite the entreaties of the organisers, Faith saw fit to serenade the exhibitionists with songs such as Slightly Tipsy and Only Teeth Hurt Like This.
Passing judgement, Mr Justice Cocklecarrot commented: "This was particularly revolting behaviour. Generally we turn a blind eye to such indiscretions so long as they take place in full view of CCTV or in dimly lit rural car parks. The sheer number of people that filmed your performance when there was so much other action going on stands as testament to that."
Ms Faith, 48, of Shoreditch, was fined £10 and pleaded with to pack it in.
Labour MP for Rochdale Simon Danzcuk has called for an immediate halt to the party's leadership contest, saying that survivors of child abuse have no confidence in Jeremy Corbyn's ability to hold the establishment to account.
"Survivors tell me that they could never put their trust in a man with a beard, not least one who has represented Islington for over 30 years, the other dark heart of the country, apart from all the others. Should Corbyn win the leadership nonetheless, I pledge to lead an immediate coup and install Our Liz, the sensible candidate for sensible times as leader for life, or at least until we inevitably lose again."
