The Colston Trial went wrong. The government needs to make sure these types are jailed and that a couple of wokeists on a jury cannot mean these sorts walk free.



I would have more sympathy with you if you could articulate what exactly you meant by ‘these sorts’ and ‘these types’.

Law firms have academic criteria for a reason.

Was it Bristol or Durham, dear? The ones that like to say they are smart and try to bully others like Anonnn tend to be from those sort of second tier places.



University of Cambridge. I like telling people.

And we still have absolutely no idea what ‘these sorts’ and ‘these types’ of people are.



If the jury says they’re not guilty then they’re not guilty. Doesn’t matter what the government thinks or does about it. That’s how it works.



And which “tier” of place would it be, the product of which describes as “wokeists” (hardly a term of art that would be used by a first tier intellect) people who heard the evidence and gave a verdict in accordance with their oath? I do hope Middle isn’t practising law…
