Of innocent merriment!

    And your views on question five?

    I like a modern moves of intervention from judges to further question witnesses to enlarge on their evidence that counsel, for what ever reason wish to let remain hidden.
    My first encounter with this was the late Justice Dick Heron when presiding over the ultimate Barlow trial for the double murders of the Thomas father and son Eugene and Gene after two hung juries, that ended with the conviction of John Barlow who after being sentenced to 14 years without parole was released after serving 16 years.

    With such active interventions from a presiding judge I favour our adversarial system as it affords greater protection to poorly equipped defendants. Such people under an inquisitional system can easily convict themselves in short order.
    The idiot at present on trial for murdering Blessie Gotingco has fired his brief and that presiding judge has declined allowing him to engage another lawyer. Not sure where that will end as he not only has an idiot to represent him lead defence counsel has a total looser for a client?!.

    You know what is weird GD – we are allowed to see him in court but not allowed to know his name

    He has form and that’s for sure – it will be interesting to see his history once the dust has settled
