    I expect Anh Nhu Nguyen knew he'd done something appalling if his brief was prepared to go to this:

    "Defence barrister Keima Payton told the court that a report prepared by a psychologist found Nguyen had an "astonishingly low" IQ that put him in the bottom 2.5% of people in Britain."
    News.Sky.com, 9th February 2018.

    Or perhaps his IQ is even lower than claimed.

    Have often wondered how hard it must be not to become such a cynical person if you are defending people as this who you know are the lowest of the low....and yet you still must try to find a likewise cynical/lying/deceitful way to get them free.

    I'm not sure you can distance yourself from it for long, it has to affect you. Probably why, I guess, these kind of cases are spread around and shared.

    Put it this way - that guy was able to concoct a story, get an audience with royalty and live off Grenfell for a while.

    Also, what is there to suggest that after all this deceit - he didn't fake the psychological report?

    His IQ is higher than you think...

    I have no idea about this convicted fraudster's IQ but I would think that his barrister's is high enough.
