‘Tony Blair heckler’ will be giving a talk in Willesden this evening

David Lawley-Wakelin, who lives in Harlesden, will be at Stop the War meeting

A protestor who interrupted former Prime Minister Tony Blair’s evidence at the Leveson Enquiry and branded him a “war criminal” will be giving a talk in Willesden tonight (Monday).

David Lawley-Wakelin, who was subsequently charged under the Public Order Act 1986 for using threatening abusive or insulting words or behavior that may have caused someone harassment alarm or distress will explain, in his own words, why it should be Tony Blair in the dock and not him.

Mr Wakelin, who lives in Harlesden, will be speaking as part of a Brent Stop the War meeting at Rumi’s Cave in Willesden Lane from 7.30pm.

He appears in court on Friday.
