    my heart goes out to these people; I applaud their love and devotion to their son.

    We know defence lawyers have to use all they can to get their clients off if they believe them to innocent, however the judge was clearly prejudiced in his summing up and directions.

    And Binsteed was found guilty of perverting the course of justice, usually an extremely serious offence, so why the minimal sentence unless seen as rewarding homophobis?
