    Perhaps we should do away with trials, abolish all that troublesome business of due process and claimant questioning altogether and just convict men & women of rape and other crimes on the say so of the media.

    Do you think the jury were impressed by the fact that he was a Saudi millionaire and that was the only reason they failed to return a guilty verdict?

    Of course, not even the media know what was said when the judge allowed 20 minutes of evidence in private.

    Perhaps he wanted to examine the 'evidence'. Nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more, squire!

    Nor do you but then it wasn't the judge who found the accused not guilty. If you want to make a more explicit accusation of improper conduct against the judge then you go right ahead.

    You can say whatever you want, just don't call foul at the consequences.

    I found that helpful too.

    Good. I'd hate for you to experience any unforeseen consequences were what you've said to be seen by some people. This is a public forum, anyone can find it and read it.

    You're beginning to sound a bit threatening now, Vince.

    I've no idea what you mean, if there is no fault in a person's words then there can be no consequence for that person.

    Mr.Fair - I actually do recall this very same defence being used by a 'politician' some years ago as part of a comedy sketch (Little Britain). That this fellow has seen fit to apply it in real life demonstrates his desperation.

    We need to make sure floors aren't too highly-polished.

    Or maybe keep your privates zipped.

    It's nice to see people quoting me, clearly acknowledging while we have free speech so there are consequences for false and malicious intimations.
