    In my 25 years attending, on behalf of the state agents, the courts within the state, to have the integrity of a bailer brought onto question to such extent, in particular given the age of some convictions being older than the defendant herself.
    But these are different times, with different defendants.

    It does smack of no effort being spared to give the impression no effort has been spared...

    But as it’s St Stephens Day in half an hour, she’ll just have to avoid spoilers of Gavin & Stacey until she can catch it on Dave.

    I hope her child (along with all others) had a good Christmas Day with family, in safety.

    'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
    Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
    He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.

    As she is from dundalk, no doubt the interwebs is already set up to look like it's the uk, so she can catch up on the bbc player..
    I like to imagine her family went to a lot of trouble embedding a seed in this poor child as to how wonderful this Christian festival is.....

    A trip to a Smiths Toys Superstore would take care of embedding a seed .

    If the evidence against Smith is that she consorted with a terrorist organisation, then Gerry Adams will finally be going down, if it’s she travelled to link up with a terrorist organisation in a foreign country, then the only birds those Colombia 3 will be watching is fellow jail boards.
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Yes, if it only took the word of a Chief Super plus intel reports, Beardie, Slab etc could have been locked up for a long time...

    There has been a certain amount of political influence over the years. The state appoints the judges, the dpp are employed by the state, and of course the police are in the employ of the state. Many prosecutions don't happen as to do so could be considered politically counterproductive. However.the opposite is also true, which is why amnesty etc are not fans of the SCC. It relies on the government of the day being honest, and with integrity. Bad and all as ours have been, they rarely interfered in the court to prosecute. They did interfere though to stop prosecutions though. Lesser of two evils perhaps.

    I can't recall them (may be wrong) ever condemning our home grown or imported terrorests, But always fast off the blocks to bang on about the agencies of the state.
