Hmmm, seems to be a few too many updates over the last week!
Anyway, Veitch got what probably coming to him, but should have happened a lot sooner.
I have to agree with David Farrar, this is not something to be played out in the public arena, but hey, hundreds of people are blogging and talking about it so I guess that’s a bit hypocritical.
What is it with the Police, it seems the lowering of standards in recruiting are starting to show through. They will probably stuff the case up completely as they have a habit of doing with high profile cases.
As I predicted we are going to see a whole bunch of ‘for’ and ‘against’ wheeled out over the coming months, so we’ll all get to make up our minds before the jury does and then trash the verdict if we don’t agree with it.
It is somewhat ironic that the court case will become a bit like a reality TV show, except this is reality, not a bunch of wannabe TV starlets trying to hit the big time, and on one will be the winner at the end of it even if he does escape prison – which I reckon is worth putting money on.
I’m glad I don’t have a TV (yes, that’s right, I haven’t owned a TV for four years now) because no doubt it will be played out each night and everyone who does have a TV will be subjected to highly balanced and in dept 30 second coverage on prime time news.
I wonder how TV1 will cover it?
Let the games begin!
