We're guessing the magistrate's bench are just lining her up for a sleepless weekend followed by a "however, we have noted your previous good behaviour and your willingness to admit your offence..." and a swift bout of community service, but Ms Dynamite has been warned she could go to prison when she returns to court for sentencing on Tuesday.

Ms Dynamite pleaded guilty to assaulting a police officer and disorderly behaviour outside a nightclub. Doubtless she'll have the following words ringing in her ears:

"I would love to see basically everything in the dreams of young black people and how we are seen, how we see ourselves, how we are treated and how we treat each other change."

Her own words, of course. Or perhaps she'll be thinking of her rewriting of George Michael's Faith from the Brit awards a couple of years back, when she lectured us all about how a "wise man fights with words" - a rewriting, she explained, to make the song "about love and peace and understanding and appreciating each other, and definitely not killing each other."

To be fair, she didn't actually kill anybody, but slapping a copper because you've been locked out of a chi-chi nightclub doesn't really do much in the interests of promoting love, peace or understanding.
