Stillman is embarrassed.
“It is hard to tell what part they found hardest to believe. I really don’t know if it was the fact that truth is not a defence. It could well have been the way in which procedure is stacked against the defendant from lack of discovery or the absence of legal aide. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter what was most shocking to them; it’s all appalling. “
The rest at sleepy ol’bear.
From the comments by Jan:
Yes, something similar happened.
The other day, I was explaining it to my mother. Were she not respectful of the fact that I have followed politics for the whole of my adult life, she also would not have believed me. Her comment, “Thank God I won’t be alive to see the end result of this.”
What a lovely comment as legacy to our political tradition.
