Re: More summary justice for Brand
I'd wager that Brand will never actually be charged with an offense and won't be tried and won't be convicted in a court of law. What happens to him in the growing media, parallel, system of gross... injustice is another question entirely. Personally I'd prefer the old-fashioned way, to trial by media. The journalists have personal reasons for animosity towards Brand, he rapidly became a direct competitor to them with his six million viewers. The courts aren't making any money from this kind of case, in contrast to the media, who love a good old british sex fest. Careers will be made on the back of Brand's destruction. And now the ghastly politicians are getting involved too. They want a piece of the action. Sorry, that can't be right, all people want is to help to protect victims from predators like Brand.
