Ought one to feel pity for Stephen Mooney QC? The jaw droppingly poor performance at Bristol Crown Court will, mercifully for Albion Chambers, soon be concluded. Avon and Somerset Police refuse to tell me under an FOI request how much the debacle has cost the
much put upon tax payer.
On that note what of compensation for Jonathan Rees and the Vian Brothers, Garry and Glenn? The Met are dragging their heels and pleading poverty. Oh well, there is the private prosecution of ex Det Ch Supt Dave Cook and Det Con Derek “Trick Baby” Haslam to look forward to.
