The Old Cock’s Lesbian Connection Disconnection

While the great American Snickers debate continues to twinkle on the great American editorial landscape, a British gay kissing conflict concluded. Two lady-loving law enforcers, Nicola Stewart and Lisa Curchin, alleged that Nikki Hackett acted abusively when tossing them from a pub called – cough – The Old Cock. Landlord Hackett objected to what she and other witnesses describe to be hot and heavy lesbianic PDA. The women, however, insist they were merely holding hands.

The Daily Mail offers the alternative accounts:

Uncomfortable onlookers saw the pair passionately kissing each other during a night out in the traditional pub, prompting swift action from Mrs Hackett.

Magistrates’ heard WPCs Nicola Stewart and Lisa Curchin, who claimed to be merely holding hands, had also provoked complaints from customers about their behaviour on 1 April last year.

Giving evidence during a trial at St Albans Magistrates’ Court, assistant manager Rhian Roderick, said: “One of the ladies had her hand up the inner thigh of the other’s short trousers.

“They were kissing passionately on the lips.”

Hackett admits that she swore at the women, but denies pounding her fists on the table, as the women alleged in their charge against her. Apparently Hackett convinced the judge. Or, at the very least, provided a more plausible story than Stewart and Curchin – magistrate Penny Williams ruled that the women were under the influence of alcohol at the time and found too many contradictions in the women’s recollections.

While the case isn’t exactly groundbreaking, it adds an extra dimension to the complicated kissing contention. How far is too far? When does knocking your honey a little honey cross that line of sociosexual line? When is a kiss more than just a kiss?

And with that, the Morning Kiss Trilogy come to a close…
