Okay, as reported today, Melbourne gangland killer Carl Williams has been locked up until he’s 71. I can safely promise you this is the last time I will comment on him or his women. The following excerpt is my favourite part of the whole story:
As the court adjourned, Williams said: “I have something to say.”
Holding a clipboard, he told Justice King: “I expected nothing better of you. You are not a judge. You are only a puppet of the police. You are a puppet for Purana.”
Justice King then asked for Williams to be removed, at which point he yelled: “Ah, get f***ed.”
I love to think that Carl had been up all night preparing that speech. Then, struck by nerves, he wrote it down on his clipboard so he didn’t forget. Then, on the big stage, he froze.
CARL: I have something to say. I…I…hang on, I’ll get it. I – oh, sorry this is really embarrassing. Hang on, hang on, I’ve got it here on my clipboard. Oh yeah, that’s right. Okay, here I go…<cough>…I have something to say: Ah, get f***ed.”
