A motion at this year's AGM of the Bristol chapter of Creepy Weirdos voted today to rescind Christopher Jeffries oddball status due to his unsuccessful attempt to get himself arrested for a murder he didn't commit. 'Quite frankly it was pathetic' said convenor Tristan Hastie, 'here is an obvious nut who spent many years teaching in a boys' school but wasn't dismissed under a cloud. Furthermore, he managed to give an articulate account of himself in the face of tabloid hysteria and police incompetence and cluelessness. The man isn't even trying to get himself publicly pilloried."
Hastie continued, 'he's been a complete waste of everybody's time. We have several crazy cat ladies and a man who gives sweets to other people's children, all deranged loons in good standing, yet this normal gets himself latched onto by the police and media? I ask you! His neighbours didn't even have a bad word for him, and I should know I've been stealing their mail and spying on their wifi for years."
