India’s most senior judge has accused a woman of making a false accusation against him.

Genuine question

I have accidentally soiled myself on the way to
Court today.

Does anyone have any tips on what to do?


Smear it on the Judge’s face.


I had a look at Eve Cornwell’s video, thinking I should see it before questioning why LC is so keen on reporting on her vlogs.

I only managed five minutes. She said nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Why do people watch these vlogs? Why? They have no use or value at all.

That’s not a criticism of or insult to Ms Cornwell. All these amateurs’ ‘channels’ seem to be pointless. I’m just baffled by the thought that anyone would get anything useful or entertaining from them.

Ms Cornhole

I watch them for a very specific different reason


Unfair that the judge is named but not the woman. Should be both or neither.


The fact that an allegation was made does not constitute evidence that the allegation is true.
