  • Well done Mr Chambers! I was asked to represent you in this case some time ago by a thoroughly nice solicitor but you appear to have secured far more grandiose counsel than I - clearly a prescient decision!

  • If only Liam Stacey had also managed to find a judge to believe him when he said that he was just being foolish, instead of considering him a threat to society and locking him up. Plus, having a better legal team would help. Who makes someone admit to something they did not actually do? If we penalize mere stupidity there won't be enough room on earth to imprison everyone.

  • We penalise stupidity all the time - the vast majority of petty crimes, I would argue, are solved because the perps are stupid. Anyway, I hope Paul finally gets his life back and his tweet is recognised for what it is, nothing more than a throw away comment in a sea of throw away comments.

  • This is a case of mind your language. If that text could be a threat, anyone who ever used the phrase 'I'm gonna kill you" or 'Oh, you are so dead' , may as well be locked up. Its sad that our judges have long forgotten to tell the difference between threats and dry humor.
