Anti-Zionist-Not-Antisemite Simone O’Broin Faces Jail For Her Drunken Shenanigans

Everyone’s favorite drunk anti-Zionist-not-antisemite Simone O’Broin is facing jail time for her drunken shenanigans late last year.

A Hove lawyer is facing jail after spitting at and racially abusing flight staff for refusing her a fourth glass of wine on a business class trip to India.

Simone Burns, 50, of First Avenue, Hove, pleaded guilty this morning to being drunk on an aircraft and assault by beating.

Burns, also known as Simone O’Broin, called staff on board the Air India flight “Indian money-grabbing c****” in a tirade filmed by another passenger and posted on social media on November 11 last year.

She described herself as an international criminal lawyer for the Palestinian people and shouted: “I have done so much for you f****** Indians and f****** Pakistanis, you should be grateful to me.”

She was also found to have been smoking in the toilets.

Burns, an Irish national, has now been committed to Isleworth Crown Court for sentencing on April 4.

Passengers found to be intoxicated on a plane could be fined up to £5,000 and jailed for up to two years for breaching air navigation orders. Assault by beating carries a maximum sentence of six months.

Let’s roll the tape again. Because it never gets old.

Believe it or not, the possible penalties she faces for this – a fine of up to £5,000 and jail for up to 2 years – is way less than a fellow Irish citizen could face for purchasing goods in parts of Israel under the Occupied Territories Bill (€250,000 and jail for up to 5 years).
