Wot a liberty of Judge Shorrock eh? Actually suggesting corroboration in a rape case ROFL.
So if the bird was filmed wiv er ankles round her neck screaming “knock it up me big boy”! this would be inadmissible evidence.
Or if CCTV captured a brutal rape, this would be inadmissible? No corroboration. Pork pies only.
Mad as hatters these PC geezers.
