It was predictable that the tabs would go big on this. But last nights TV news ignored it.

When people start laughing judges often say. "This is not a music Hall"

Sad that a trial about serious alleged sexual offences is being reduced to this. What must the witnesses think?

Have a feeling it was to do with the size of his penis.

Here says that women says it was either very big or very small whereas it is about normal sized.

They could have been describing his girth? What penis were they comparing his to?

Yes, it was funny. The only radio station who used the story on the day, seems to have been Radio 4s PM prog (They apologised in advance)

I think it is somewhere between 4 and 7 inches. USA has a 7inch club.
The things you learn on Mumsnet

The whole thing is distasteful really, from his making it grow to show a Dr, having it measured and his legal team brining it up in court. You have no idea what someone will be comparing it to and how many they have seen, if it is length or girth or what. He is on the small side though. Sadly I had an ex measure his and show me it's length and girth. hmm

The issue is are all these random women utterly making it up. He says their descriptions of 30 years+ ago are not accurate, room lay outs, where he was at what times etc etc. It is key to this. They cannot not use the penis evidence.

No problem with the penis size evidence but I have a HUGE problem with the trivialising and hilarity bunch of fucking immature idiots in the press and what this must be like for witnesses if they turn out to be vindicated by the verdict.

I think its a disgrace that this is what our legal system is reduced to, but I did LOL a little at poster who said his legal team brining it up in court

Justice takes many forms. And I get a sense of justice that he looks the silly fool he is.
