No, what happened was she was asked how did she plea and she said "not guilty" and they then reported that they had made a 'mistake' and failed to record the plea. Now that's not from the UK Column, I got that from the national press. It was interesting to notice how early versions of the story were quickly modified in sync with all the others. I was watching the case unfold like a hawk because I expected something like this to happen. There were also independent legal observers in the courtroom. I'm sure you are familiar with this sort of idea, bearing in mind I hear you are hoping to do a similar thing with elections when you qualify.The judge asked what the defence was going to be. It's reasonable so that an appropriate amount of time in court can be allocated.
