Oh, I see, the journalist got it all wrong.

It wasn't you, Fish, was it?

It can only be fair if the briefing information he had to work with was accurate and comprehensive. We're all very aware of the divergent impressions we can get from different press reports, for example.

I have very good reason to suggest that Paul may have been out of earshot.
I think youve mis-spoken there Fish. What you meant to say was “ I have a very good reason to need to believe that Paul may have been out of earshot.”

No problem. An easy mistake to make

It's still a supposition, nonetheless, and one to which most people wouldn't give a second thought unless they wanted to paint Cross in a suspicious light.

I don't see how anyone could debate this very obvious and sensible point Gareth? How can so much weight be put on an opinion that has only heard one side of a debate. It might be acceptable form for a tv documentary but not for a serious debate on the topic as a whole. How much weight would Fish give if one of us placed the case for the defence to a barrister who concluded “ theres nothing here that points to his guilt?” Hed surely, and rightly, point out that it was a judgement based one-sided opinions only.

Im not a Barrister but how much weight would a judge and jury place on a suggestion that relies on “well its not completely impossible” to lend it legitimacy?

I feel like Captain Mainwaring listening to Jones's 'realms of fantasy' ideas.
