Dave Walker Update

Even though we’ve had a busy weekend (our Patronal Festival weekend), things have been moving along with the Dave Walker case. The list of key articles has grown, and we’ve had a great contribution from fellow cartoonist, ASBO Jesus.

The updated list of articles and postings is as follows:

MadPriest has another suggestion, having got hold of an e-mail address for Mark Brewer himself, who based on one of the replies posted back to the blog doesn’t seem overly keen at the direct approach…

“You will not succeed in bullying me with your rude, unChristian behavior. Also, note that this is my personal email and I do not consent to you contacting me at this address or invading my privacy by giving my email to others.”

I’m sure I’m not the only one who sees the irony in his response, as this is exactly what most people have been saying about his actions against Dave.
