Lee Gould Age
Lee Gould, 47, of Rochester, Kent, emailed Tony Blair’s former locker doctor on April 25th last year, “I find it absolutely amazing that someone like you can chew without seriously harming yourself or your family .
“As a former security guard, I’d like to put one on the back of your head.”
Gould sent the email during a mental health crisis and there was no evidence he was obsessed with Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court, 63-year-old writer.
Mr Campbell said in a statement that he was “used to receiving bad news” but the email was particularly shocking and troubling “because of the poisonous references to the family.”
He said the reference to Gould’s military background raised further alarms.
Gould, who told police he was a supporter of Brexit, sent the email after hearing Mr Campbell speak on the radio.
He admitted he disliked the former head of Labor communications for his actions on Downing Street related to the Iraq war, the Evening Standard reports.
Gould told police: “Similar to Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin, he is a leader who does not seem to notice his toxicity and what exists. ”
“The main goal for him was to understand that there are people who don’t like him.”
Greg Stewart, who defended himself, said, “It’s not a campaign, it was a very, very bad failure in a very, very low situation. The risk of recurrence is small.
“The clinical psychiatrist says his mental health has changed significantly and since then housing has been secured for his address, as well as for the efforts he has made himself.
“There hasn’t been anything like it since then. This is not the tip of the iceberg depicting harm against key members of the public, but a short two-line post.
“It was all there, easy for him to use his anger at the time.” ”
He added, “We don’t suspect he’s obsessed with Mr. Campbell other than hearing on Radio 5 that he has a past or a future relationship.
“He has never targeted Mr. Campbell before or since.”
Gould admitted sending the agonizing email, but the verdict was adjourned after the prosecutor couldn’t confirm whether Mr Campbell wanted to issue a restraining order.
Judge Alison Rose said, “For now, it is best to have the applicant’s perspective before an injunction is issued.
“The Krone has applied for an injunction and I have to make an informed decision about it.
“I regret that I have to adjourn until March 29th.”
Gould admitted to sending a letter, notice, or article to Mr. Campbell carrying a threatening message under the Malicious Communications Act of 1988.
He was released on bail on March 29, prior to being sentenced.
