Hard To Swallow


Up until recently, the best defence this correspondent had encountered was the Arsenal back-five of season 1990-1991. In thirty-eight games played, they conceded just eighteen goals; put in context, Liverpool the team that finished second conceded forty goals.

However, this correspondent came across a defence as strong (if not stronger) than the Arsenal back- fives’ while reading the Sunday Times a while back.

Your correspondent read about Ms Chisako Kakehi, a sixty-seven year old Japanese lady who had been detained by police in Kyoto, on suspicion of killing four of her husbands & three of her fiancés. We (the readers) are informed that suspicion in her arose after the results from an autopsy on her last husband’s death (married to him for one month) showed cyanide in his blood. We are told, this suspicion was then compounded by the results of another autopsy of a previous dead fiancé which also displayed cyanide in the blood. Police, also discovered her deceased partners had willed her a grand total of $4.3million.

The response she gave to those suspicions made about her, displays a firm ability to defend herself. She told the Kyoto Police that she did not kill anyone (her partners), and could not have killed anyone as she does not even know how to kill someone?

A novel response by Ms Kakehi to accusations of murder by displaying an ignorance in the subject to produce a strong (& hopefully for her- blissful) defence.

She would have settled well at Arsenal during the early nineties.

However no defence is fool-proof (Arsenal conceded eighteen goals in season 1990-1991) and this correspondent is reminded of another who used ignorance as a defence from accusations, only for it to produce a bliss-less outcome.

The character Kronsteen (No.5) from the James Bond movie ‘From Russia with Love’ was an unbeaten chess player & a planner at the SPECTRE organisation (criminal gang). In a scene from the film, Kronsteen explains to his boss Bloefeld that his plan to steal a Lektor (a decoding machine) from the Russians & kill James Bond had failed (not because of the plan) but its poor execution by Rosa Klebb (No.3).

Kronsteen smirkes and further explains he is not at fault for the plan’s failure as he is ignorant in how to fail.

Bloefeld appears to agree with Kronsteen and informs Klebb that failure will not be tolerated at Spectre. As Bloefeld’s henchman Morenzy moves behind Klebb and flips the sole of his shoe to produce knife (poisoned) he suddenly turns to the side and kicks Kronsteen, killing him in seconds.

Ms Kakehi should take heed of Bloefeld’s response to Kronsteen’s ignorance of failure as a defence for failure. The Judiciary in Kyoto may react in a similar way to her ignorance.
