Day 24 and an unexpected change of tack.
We’re now working from the ‘Eye For An Eye’ School of Justice Manual…
Got to suggest that this is premeditated, right?
Have a wonderful image of Gerrie Nel reclining on Mauritian beach in his Raybans and Hawaian shorts,pages of Oscar trial blowing around him

Are you watching, students of the noble art? THIS. IS. JOURNALISM!
Meanwhile, talking of “journalism”, new levels of desperation have been reached on News24:
Look out for their exclusive Pistorius headline tomorrow: “There Were A Few More People Here Than Yesterday, However Their Numbers Still Didn’t Really Match Up With The Larger Amount Of Observers Which We Noted Earlier In The Week, But Was Obviously Greater In Number Than Last Thursday, Which Was Notable For The Fact The The Courtroom Was Surprisingly Sparsely Attended”
Now I may be wrong but I DO have my contact lenses in and could swear Barry Roux just winked at me. Demob happy ahead of long weekend?

You’re imagining Barry Roux winking at you?
I dunno. Is there such a thing as demob desperate?
Lest we forget, you were imagining his opponent half naked on a tropical beach paradise just yesterday (see above).
Nel, like a man whose opponent has brought a comb to a knife fight, continues to jab at his qualifications and credibility. #OscarPistorius

Really, Andrew? Is this honestly your understanding of what someone would do were their opponent to bring a comb to a knife fight? “Jab at his qualifications and credibility”?
‘Cos I’d guess that they’d probably just stab him. Unpleasant? Sure. But let’s face it, it’s a knife fight and he’s turned up with a comb. What does he expect? His qualifications and credibility to be jabbed at?
I doubt that very much.
No, I think that with your remark, you may be confusing ‘a knife fight’ with ‘a qualifications and credibility jabbing session’ and they’re really not the same thing, their only common factor being that I wouldn’t bring a comb along to either occasion.
And then that was it. For a couple of weeks, at least.
