I have it on good authority that the media are VERY interested in one of the trials and a certain organisation is fully ramping up its damage limitation team.
Would you care to enlarge slightly, Ed ?

The Remaining Trials.

My 'inboard' computer diary has just flagged up that the two (?) remaining Sussex Crown Court trials are due to commence a week today, 29th. May. They were listed some time ago to be heard at Brighton.

We all know how likely this is to change at short notice.

Many apologies. For some reason my previous post has come out in very large font and I do not know how to change it to 'normal.' Sorry!

All sorted for you, David. The wonders of 'IT' !! John.

Re: Ajaz Karim found guilty

I'm tempted to use my powers of moderation. Well, there's gratitude for you. Anyone else would just count themselves lucky to have been immortalised in verse. In fact, why not have a calligrapher copy it out by hand and then have it framed? (PS: I wore the hat just once, in a moment of madness, rat...

Perhaps someone would like to open a Limerick thread, as this Karim thread seems to have gone way off track !

Re: Coleridge: the bones

Talking of Coleridge, there's been an absence of Post War Blue on these threads in weeks past. He was my connection with an earlier era in Col B. Has he been mortally offended by my nautical limerick about him? Or (and one always worries about this sort of thing at my age) has he progressed to the ...

Re: Ajaz Karim found guilty

There's a long tradition of "joining" the guilty together in this country. In the old days if there were a lot of prisoners taken to Tyburn to be hanged they would often be roped together in the tumbril on their dismal journey and then strung up in a line on the scaffold. I guess this is a modern d...
