  2. Why bollocks? There has been AMPLE discussion of this case in another thread

    Why should he be exempt from the law?

  3. The retrial will still have to address the facts of the case, which, as far as I can tell, haven't changed.
  4. Another blow for Sally and the rest of the defence team will likely be the news that Sean Rayment is no longer the Daily Telegraph Defence Correspondent.

    (but not necessarily a blow for accurate and impartial defence journalism)

  7. No, no evidence, its not his fault, aliens broke in and hid the glock under the bed, the next door neighbour saw that the table leg was a bit wobbly and kindly sorted it out with 300 rounds of 9mm

    As you would, he totally forgot about the whole thing because he's got brain damage, so of course he should released scot free and allowed back into the Hereford Holigans PDQ, cos being brain damaged he's just the sort we want tooling around the boathouse "init"

    Thanks for reading

  8. Methinks the gentleman has shot himself in the foot.
  9. Why the schadenfreude? The guy served his country brilliantly, how I wish we would hound our enemies as relentlessly as we prosecute our soldiers.

    Take away the SAS shit and you just get a scrote hoarding guns and ammo. Shadenfreude??

  11. He had a Glock and 300rnds of ammunition in his house. If he'd done his time without he or his Mrs going to the papers he'd have been allowed to soldier on afterwards.

  12. Only if he manages to escape from the prison facility and then E&E across the nearest national border.

  13. He'd probably just escape to the Los Angeles underground where, if you have the money.........

  14. He's not being prosecuted for being a soldier; it is alleged he imported an illegal firearm which was left lying around in a flat.

    Any soldier would know that you'll get severely punished for naughtiness with the bangy stuff.
  15. And if you can find him, you'll be lucky because he's forgotten where he is.
