    hard to know what to think

    there was a lot of BS in the media about him having a shrine to jill dando in his home etc, but as we all know the tabloids (and their bribes to police) make it impossible to trust a word they print

    friend of mine whos a copper was absolutely adamant that he was guilty

    It’s an interesting theory (see what I did there) but our stats would suggest not.

    Yes but he made you look 😉

    You might want to look up the definition of ‘thick’ buddy. And a little tip I learnt when I was seven; best not to be cocky when you’re in the wrong.

    Whilst busy gloating to yourself you may wish to look at the fact that after the conviction was quashed he was then retried for the offence and found not guilty
    I think this answers your original two questions

    Um, where does it say he
    A: Didn’t commit the crime?

    and/or

    B: Wasn’t the actual killer?

    No arguments with that, it’s always helpful and the detective work is fun.

    The argument is that though the conviction was wrong, it wasn’t unreasonable- there wasn’t a perversion of justice etc.

    I don’t buy that as a reason not to compensate, myself- sure, a wrongful conviction isn’t as “bad” as a false one but the result is the same, time wrongly spent in jail. That’s properly life-changing, life-ruining in fact. You can’t fix it, but the least you can do is try.

    The fact that he’s a wrong ‘un doesn’t come into it in the slightest, IMO.

    I think it was the Mary Whitehouse Experience that suggested if you wrongly serve time, you should be given a shopping list of offences and tariffs and be allowed to commit offences up to the value of your time served…

    TuckerUK,

    Apologies for implying you were “thick”, i was in a bad mood yesterday and should have avoided the troll house, with hindsight i realise that what i posted was over the top and quite inflammatory.

    I still think you were trolling or trying to start an un-necessary argument.

    Don’t call me “buddy” i’m not and wouldn’t be.
