im sure it will all come out in the wash , it always does , he may be an absent minded tw@t and forgot he was airing his jewels in public ''twice''
he may of thought the wee lassie was an off duty nurse and he wanted an opinion off her on whether the brown ring on his knob was anything to worry about ''a innocent gesture taken the wrong way by a prude '' happens all the time
All the theories about standing square, etc. ignore the fact that there never was any corroboration of the woman's identification. Had it been Dennis Dosser, I would suspect this would not even have come to court. It was necessary to run this as it would all too easily lead to hideous publicity if the complainant went to Press "I was flashed at and no one did anything"
The introduction by the accused of a pair of undergarments as 'evidence' that those of the type he adduced in evidence were those he usually wore was nothing short of disgraceful!
It is the worst example of self-serving evidence I have yet seen. I am amazed that the prosecution did not argue to have it excluded, or that the presiding judge allowed it to be admitted or that the defendant, himself an eminent judge of the Court of Appeal should have relied upon such a stunt as providing anything like compelling evidence of rebuttal.
Are we now to have criminals adducing real evidence such as a gun or a knife with the bald unsupported assertion that that which the prosecution hold is of a type which the defendant does not normally use?
I cannot escape the sense that the outcome of this trial has more to do with the preservation of the dignity of the judiciary than it does with anything else
Imagine the response if he had pulled out a lacy thong and matching suspender belt. Just incase Im in the dock in the next 10-15 years Im not implying judges are perverted old men who like dressing in ladies underwear myeeeeee honour.
