    A direct quote from the court case stated that “ During the court proceedings, Phoebe and her father Mitch Hooke admitted to cooperating with a journalist they knew who wrote stories accusing Burgess of drug use and domestic violence”
    Is this the same court case that the father in law was described as “impressive, believable and consistent" in his testimony by the judge?

    Reacher is right; the information that is coming out regarding Burgess is pretty damning and any defence for him by outsiders appears along the lines of ‘heez a dead gud player so he must be a top fella.’ If the only case his defence have is his ex talking to the media versus what is coming out on SB then thats pretty sad.

    I agree relationships going to the dogs can cause us to go to the bottom of the barrel. I wouldn't wish that stress on anyone.

    That was my point. I don’t know anything other than that.
    Can't stop the spirits when they need you.

    This life is more than just a read through.

    The magistrate that admitted he knew the father-in-laws family during the trial and didnt recuse himself you mean? Not defending SB, but that doesnt seem right in my eyes.

    Regardless of what happened before.


    Driving without a license under the influence of drugs is just downright criminal. Not only that, but being in that state when going to pick your kids up?

    Absolutely no sympathy for him.

    I lived there longer than Burgess without picking up an Aussie accent. At the time I was single so was working and playing rugby and sharing houses with Aussies

    Maybe the Belgian accent counteracts the “Strine”?

    BS sounds like a cross between Tin Tin and Bernard Dwyer.

    People not understanding my accent probably got me out of lots of awkward questions when giving presentations.

    It's an art form, being able to speed up and slow down when needed. I quickly learned that in my early days in Holland.

    in mitigation, the lack of license is only an administrative thing as he should have applied for an aussie license to replace his international permit when he became a resident a few months ago.

    There is no mitigation, you either have a licence or you don't. Its a statutory requirement to drive a car. If you don't have one, you don't drive and if you do drive and get caught, there is no 'yeah but' allowed. That's the least of his concerns it would appear, the drug driving and for me, the worst part, he was on his way to pick up his very young children, literally putting their lives in grave danger.

    I can’t see much relevance that had to do with the interpretation and application of law against the facts presented in the case. I should imagine many people ‘know’ and are acquainted in the legal circuit but it doesn't stop their impartiality or proper execution of law when they are in the courtroom. It's a pretty low Daily Mirror type line of argument by SB if indeed that's been put forward. A law room is exactly that, not a feelings or cheap speculation room.
