As expected the closing arguments tearing the girl to shreds.

If Dara Florence has said she didn't think she witnessed a rape then how can you convict lads beyond reasonable doubt??
She's never seen a rape. She never saw a threesome even. She's not what could be called an expert.
And she only had a gawk for less than a minute.

Count out in your head 45 seconds, or open a door in the office and look in and count 45 seconds..

Ive never seen a rape before but if i looked for that amount of time and was asked whether i wanted to join in, I think that I'd know what was going on.. Hey thats just me

Iím in the same boat but almost 10 years older  >:(. The job Iím in at the minute is actually affecting my mental health but Iím not sure where to turn or what Iím qualified to do...

If its affecting your health you need to review your current choices, and yes you have to take into consideration the money side of things but if the job starts to have a down side medically then I'd be looking a way out or speak to those within the company to reduce the pressures of the job, if possible

Been down this route a couple times, from an engineering background originally and got into teaching engineering in training colleges.. good sector to get into providing you have the temperment and skills.. Most training organisations will put you through all your exams also, up to a teaching certificate..

Lots of other things to branch off into within those jobs, management, auditor, and so on

But I changed all that about 5 odd years ago and got into medical sales, mine is a niche market of sales which required a foundation degree course but its been the best move yet, very tough to give it a go in your 40's, I was 41 so for me it was a gamble that has paid off and works well for me..

I'd full recommend to change your job if your feeling like that

when will the jury get to decide on this? after today?

Olding, McIlroy and Harrison's barristers haven't summed up yet.  There's that to be done and then the judge's direction to the jury.  Not sure how long all that will take.

McIlroy and Harrison's barristers will have to earn their crust I'd say, Hearing prices of over £300,000 for just one of the defendants has paid for legal fees.....

The guy was a traitor. I feel sorry for his daughter, but he knew what game he was in. If this was a British defector in Moscow, responsible for the deaths/ exposure of British agents in Russia, and he was taken out by MI6, the Sun and Mail would be in total jubilation mode
"But wait, look at my imagine hypothetical reactions from a couple of English tabloids to an event that hasn't actually happened!"

What is your point?

Is it that Putin would and should just sit there like a good little boy if the Brits were murdering a load of people they didn't like in Russia?

Is it that the Brits should be allowed poison or stage "suicides" of a load of former IRA members in the six counties because they were "traitors" to the UK during the Troubles?

Because that seems to be the implication.

That escalated quickly, to UK v Russia to now the RA?  always comes back to here  ;D

Was the general consensus not that Jackson did ok?
I havent seen the media comment on whether he was good or bad. The lynch mob on here were going to say he was terrible regardless. There were certainly a lot more inconsistencies in the defence's evidence which is to be expected as there were 4 of them and everyone was drunk. There are enough gaps and contradictions between the girl's evidence and her earlier statements for PJ and Olding to almost certainly get off though. I thought she did sound coached in some of her comments. "I utterly refute everything you have just said" struck me as an unnatural response from a 19 year old but then she can hardly say "you're full of shit" in court either.

I did hear a rumour her parents work in the field - dad either a judge or barrister and mum a solicitor.  (could be b*llshit though)

Heard medical and uncle was a a barrister, could be bullshit and wouldnt make a pile of difference, she answered very well and the guys didnt, its just down to the jury

Iím not confused, I wanted him after Fergie as he would have been able to attract the better players and possibly won something (like heís proven) he was still very good manager as his tactics then were defensive but never pretty... Utd still needed to have a big name after Fergie, heíd have been gone by now but Iíd say Utd would have won a league with him TBH

Booked to go to Iceland Tuesday week on a whim last night  ;D. Only £200 return for three of us. Anybody got any useful info??

Daughter just back from Iceland yesterday. They had a blast and did the heap, photos are amazing and for my daughter to come back impressed is pretty impressive! If you have a 17 year old youíll understand!

But seriously expensive!

The Funeral Murders on BBC2 was totally compelling. Remember the time well and must bring back some memories for MR2 etc from the area.
Anonymous interviews seemed conveniently bullshitty
Aye stood out a mile. "Nuala" in particular was fake as fcuk.

The documentary was really good but defo strange to then have Nuala tell us what her mum saw when everything else was from first hand witnesses. Not being bias but thought some of the soldiers and RUC guys interviewed came across very badly.
Nualaís mum seemed to see a lot of stuff for a woman who just happened upon this when she was walking by. The abduction, what happened in Casement Park and the execution in waste ground away across the road on, up an alley on waste ground. Going by the footage, there didnít seem to be a large amount of people in Casement or on the waste ground but Nualaís mum was allowed to casually dander around. Nuala seemed very affected by what her mother saw. Iím not sure I believe Nuala.

Nuala was completely full of shite! Iíve never heard so much bullshit! The rest was what I expected, Iíd expect the cops to say what they said...

I had some flashbacks from the Stone madness!! Donít know how lucky I was being so close, Tom who was on from the Healy funeral directors is a good friend and a club team mate of mine and remember before the carnage of shouting over to him! His da was never the same to be fair..

Thought Murray spoke really well and for me the best reflection I had of the time

See the problem with Rory is that he portrays this image of being 1 of the lads, up for a laugh. Then we see now he's looking to limit the alcohol sales at golf events because someone kept shouting his wife's name...he's a complete paradox of an individual who doesn't know what he wants to be. He wants to be Tiger and have the same aura, but he neither has the stature or ability to do so. He needs to cop himself on. Great golfer and all he is but he needs to define who he wants to be instead of this middle of the road tosspot.

I think he just wants to be a great golfer... keeping people happy who are tosspots doesnt really need to be done i'd assume, the media stuff is about trying to say the right things...

Being Tiger on the golf course is everyones dream (if they play golf) but off the course i'd say Tiger can be a twat

They were poor witnesses

Certainly appeared so compared to the composed, assertive and combative complainant who was operating at a different level of intelligence and maturity than the accused.  Little things like that stick in the minds of jurors, so long as they didn't find the complainant too sure of herself in dealing with 6 days of questioning.


As opposed to two lads whose careers involved portraying an image to the public? They had every advantage in that regard and still came across terribly.

Where do you get off, lad?

Strip joints!  ;)

Thanks everybody.
Thanks Crossbar for the offer but I got a more central one which is extremely handy.
They know who they are and it is appreciated
Post their details as it might save me a few quid next time I'm up shopping.

Why did he not just park it at the airport, the miserable cnut  ;)
