Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This extract is hilarious:

    Taylor's defence barrister, Mohammed Khamisa QC, said his client's actions had been "clumsy, illogical and stupid, but not a deliberate attempt to lie". Mr Khamisa added: "He is not motivated by money. He is a humble man, a gentle and honest man, with a clear moral compass.

    No shit! :laughing2:

    His barrister should be on the stage, then there is little difference between an actor and a barrister.

  2. In Taylor's case, the CPS clearly thought that there was sufficient evidence to make a case against him, and this has been borne out by the finding. In Uddin's case, the CPS deemed that there was insufficient evidence available to secure a conviction, as voiced publicly by the DPP.

    I take it you would rather taxpayers money was used to drag a case through court when there was no realistic chance of conviction, merely to demonstrate a level playing field between blue and red (or should that be white and brown?).
  3. Joe are you frickin colour blind?
    She has not yet done a Michael Jackson:-D
  4. They're both whiter than you.
  5. Nah, I was told by the war office today that I gotta stop buying guns and bayonets, I have been quite pale ever since.
    And Lord Taylor is still capable of giving me black looks.:-|
  6. Taylor? I must have been thinking of Tyler.
  8. The requirement in a criminal court is that the accused shall be shown beyond reasonable doubt to be guilty. Civil courts only require for it to be on the balance of probability that someone has done something, which is a much easier test to pass. Parliament make up their own rules, but then again, that is their job. The point with Uddin is that it was difficult to prove that she had not been at the house she was claiming to have been at. I certainly never saw her there, mind you, I never saw her at her London address either. Taylor was a completely different kettle of fish, as he admitted what he had been doing, but claimed that it was okay to falsify claims, as that was the norm.
