Haven't tried doing a link before, so if it doesn't work I'm sorry!

Clicky link smile

I'll read it and report back.

He's paid to defend people. That's his job. He's good at it. The best.

If he didn't do it, someone else would. That is the nature of our legal system. What would you like really, for the defendant to have no legal representation? Hung out before it even got to trial?

How did you make the link work?
Your sooo clever, please spill!

It's the comments about women and rape I don't agree with.

HollyBerryBush Fri 19-Apr-13 20:24:14

All he highlights is loop holes in the law, that shouldn't be there when the law is passed.

Ihate, do this but don't leave a space between the start brackets and the end brackets [[ http://m.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/lostinshowbiz/2013/apr/18/mr-loophole-nick-freeman-motoring-rape And just write what you want to put here, then some more brackets]]

I believe that the CPS has a special barrister who is specialising in prosecuting Freeman's cases and is starting to make an impact on the number of cases he wins.

There is a concept of the "spirit" of the law - Freeman has no respect for that and therefore I have little respect for him.

YANBU!

Rape is not about red-blooded alpha males and women in dresses. It is about power, control and humiliation.

Idiot.

TheCunnyFunt Fri 19-Apr-13 20:27:26

Sorry didn't explain that well, where I left a space between the first set of brackets and the beginning of the web address, don't leave a space.

Err excuse me Mr Freeman

The Range Rover Bluetooth system works absolutely fine because there are notices around the factory asking staff to turn Bluetooth off as it picks up bloody everything.

I know it works.
Anyway. Dumb cow should have pulled over and called the person back.

On high horse now!

I just think that people who have done something wrong are massive Twonks, if they don't just admit it and take their punishment.

Anyone can do something wrong, only complete Twonks don't just say, "Sorry I'm a massive Twonk, I won't do it again, and pay the fine, do the sentence, or take the ban, you don't take up court time, spend pointless money on defending yourself,

Once you are on my Twonk list you can't get off until you make it right.

Twonk- gender neutral encompassing word, combining twat and wanker, for inclusive abuse.

He is a Twonk, for his stupid statements, but his clients are massive Twonks, who need to redeem themselves.

Hear hear Quote

ihatethecold Fri 19-Apr-13 20:51:38

My issue isn't the clients he deals with, if you get as far as the end of the article, he talks about women and rape.

That's my beef with himangry

Spikeytree Fri 19-Apr-13 20:55:27

Victim blaming again. His comments show him to be scornful of women in general, but he obviously has a low opinion of men too, if he believes that they cannot control themselves.

Just generally, all round, he seems a massive twat. YANBU.

HollyBerryBush Fri 19-Apr-13 21:00:01

He vocalises opinions that would be main stream. Most people don't vocalise them. that doesn't mean his opinions are right of course, they are generally the ones that pop into your head through conditioning, but you have to work through them

BrevilleTron Fri 19-Apr-13 21:05:40

Well he can defend his dumbass clients all he wants

And I'll defend the Range Rover.

Yes I'm annoyed with all his other stupid opinions too but dissing a car I build? on PMT week!

I'm tempted to rivet his bollocks to my bin!

What he says is "On rape, he warns that women need to "take responsibility" for how they dress. "As a red-blooded alpha male," Nick explains, "let me state unequivocally that I believe how a woman dresses (and behaves in that dress) tells a man what's on her mind." That said, he informs readers that his defence work has brought him into contact with "cases where those who have been dressed in a perfectly conventional way were still victims of this heinous crime." Key word: still. The way a woman dresses, Nick concludes, "can victimise men"."

So he is basically saying men can't help themselves, which IMO men should find highly offensive. What a fucking twat.

YANBU He's a twunt

BrevilleTron Fri 19-Apr-13 21:11:47

Alpha male?

Looks a bit Gamma to me!

Red blooded male?
Aren't reptiles cold blooded?

"let me state unequivocally that I believe how a woman dresses (and behaves in that dress) tells a man what's on her mind."

That makes me physically sick.
