Noel Gallagher changes his mind

Having had everyone troop into court last week to sentence his attacker, only to insis through his lawyer that he wanted to appear to give a witness statement, yesterday the court was told that Noel had changed his mind:

Mr. Justice Richard Schneider reluctantly agreed to the delay, but at a hearing to set the new sentencing date of March 23 yesterday, prosecutor Ruth Kleinhenz told court Mr. Gallagher no longer plans to attend.

I'm not sure if the Canadian courts take a dim view of having to hold three separate sentencing gatherings on a whim of a rock star, but let's hope this doesn't mean that Noel can never set foot in Canada ever again for fear of being thrown in a jail.
