Christine Hamilton, wife of disgraced former MP Neil Hamilton and one of three people being investigated over rape claims, has continued her public whinging about her and her husband's treatment by attacking "Mr Plod" for reading her emails.

She said: "I know an enormous number of people have been sending me emails... but I can't get at them because the police have, to my mind, stolen our computers and some Mr Plod is probably reading what they've sent to me. If they are not enraged by that, I am."

Mrs Hamilton's latest outburst is beginning to sound like a woman who is revelling in the public attention. Not only are her comments completely wrong but the search for emails is likely to prove the main defence plank her and her husband have against the accusations.

The woman who claims to have been raped in the Hamilton's presence and subjected to indecent activities by them while being raped claims that she received several "pornographic and threatening emails" from the pair, coming from a "britishbattleaxe" email address. The Hamiltons deny any such communication.

Hence the police impounded the computers and are searching them for any such emails. Without the emails, the case against Hamiltons would most likely collapse.

Ironically, it is Mrs Hamilton's obvious technical ignorance that will make the lack of any emails even stronger. If such emails were sent and received, neither Hamilton is likely to know how to remove it completely from their system. This is why police are currently combing the hard discs for deleted emails.

The likelihood that police are checking emails sent in recent days is extremely low. They are looking for emails sent earlier this year. It would be an abuse of police powers if they started reviewing emails sent since they impounded the computers.

Besides, Mrs Hamilton has completely failed to understand that she can easily download her emails by buying a new computer and setting up the account again.

The Hamiltons are not stupid people, leaving the possibility that they are simply seeking as much publicity for their cause as possible, which includes a threatened action for unlawful arrest which may stretch to six figures. ®
