harry redknapp case:

now im not the most intelligent person about, but allowing the jury to go home tonight to make up their minds on the case is surely absurd?

harry has admitted in court to taking "bungs".
harry works for a business that is under police investigation for hiring private investigaters and hacking/ tracking down / making contact with a high profile decision board?!
its a high profile case that has been on the front of the papers since day 1.
surely they should all be in a hotel, like any other case that has to come to a decision over night????????


every person in the jury is gunna get a nice brown envelope through the door tonight arent they?

I don't even think he'd need to bother, unless I'm missing something the prosecution have no proof that it was income rather than a gift.

Judge even said in his summing up that arry and mandaric are men of good character ( Laughing out loud )

The jury is always sent home - hotels no more.

Duff that's a standard good character direction the judge is always obliged to give one - if of previous good character. It's the same in all trials.

The former Baywatch actress is temporarily filling Amanda Holden's shoes while she is on maternity leave looking after her newborn tot Hollie Rose. However Carmen' reception has been rather frosty.

Fans have been booing her, while Simon's fellow panellists are fed up of his flirtatious relationship with the US beauty 39.

According to The Sun, the pair have been holding hands, stroking each other and whispering private jokes to one another.

One onlooker at the Hammersmith Apollo said: 'It's become increasingly obvious why Simon booked Carmen… they were all over each other. They were play-hitting each other like awkward teenagers.'

That just seems to be a rehash of an article that was doing the rounds last month - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2084039/BBC-axes-expos-Jimmy-Savile-teen-sex-allegations.html

I wonder if that means there's more to come.

Slightly unfair. You can guarantee the press would have been looking to speak to the family for quotes

But Milspex is not gonna be happy either:
