McCartney Brother's Trial Delayed

LATEST: The trial of SIR PAUL McCARTNEY's brother has been delayed following a legal argument.

MIKE McCARTNEY is accused of sexual touching after an alleged incident in a Merseyside, England, pub in September 2004.

He reportedly touched the bottom of a 16-year-old waitress.

The 61-year-old - formerly a member of 1960s pop group THE SCAFFOLD - has the full backing of his older BEATLE brother, who fully expects his name to be cleared.

At Chester Crown Court, Judge ELGIN EDWARDS yesterday (21FEB06) delayed the swearing in of the presiding jury until this morning (22FEB06), when it is hoped the matter will be solved.

Oh isn't it getting tiresome, people jumping on the bandwaggon. Accuse somebody with money or someone with a celebrity background of doing something just to get something out of it for themselves. It doesn't matter what damage they do in the meantime.Accusation either fabricated or incidents blown right out of proportion. If Mike McCartney was just the ordinary guy in the street would complaints have been made then? I bet not.Leave the bloke alone.
