The Secret Lord Lyle

Ah Messrs Evans and McDonald. And Miss X.
I am pleased LC responded to a request last week to post an article on it.
I concurr with the Secret Barrister.
I do have some observations/queries.
The behaviour of this menage a trois seems equally disgraceful to me.
How do you make a complaint if you have no memory of what happened? So was the complainant the Crown?
I think I heard amongst the din, that X’s drink had been spiked, so rendering her incapable of consent. But I see no evidence of this. What of the two men who watched through the window? I do not see their evidence.
Lastly, these two Chavs, failed to heed the minatory legend ‘audio video record your sexual liaisons’.


Lord Lyle of Empirical Logic

I would also like to commend the Secret Barrister for his fulsome knowledge of the English language, rhetoric and empirical logic. I would advise law students to note his exemplary style.
I shall be addressing empirical logic for law students in today’s tutorial


Ciaran Goggins

R v Evans – anonymity for both sides or neither. Naming? Can be done abroad but not in UK.
Minimum 12 year tariff for false rape accusers, now.



She isn’t a ‘false rape accuser’…


Lord Lyle of Greek knowledge

Con Fu Tse say: “If I provide one corner of the square and the student cannot deduce the other three therefrom, he is a useless student”
Ergo: in my lesson on empirical logic, I give you the Syllogism.


Lord Lyle of Hatingdon

Let’s go champ!


Lord Lyle of Egyptian knowledge

From the fons et origo of the Syllogism all things flow. It is for the student to learn and discern. That concludes my tutorial on empirical logic.

Next up: rhetoric.



Lord Lyle, get a life bro.

Ur bants is BTEC level.


Lord Lyle of CAD , Special Needs and Argumentum Ad hominems

Having now covered the English language and empirical logic the student may see the dearth of both in the special needs people who infest this site.
Law students kindly consider the effects of such comments if made in correspondence, court etc.

I invite you to Google logical fallacies.
One will note the special needs people herein favour ad hominems. They do not even get to the stage of argumentum. Just gratuitous meaningless ad hominems disembogue therefrom. There are a number of psychiatric disorders apart from special needs that are pertinent, but I refer to the compulsive gratuitous abuse people as suffering from CAD- Compulsive Abuse Disorder. These site is rich for diagnostics on CAD.
