How Bloody Ridiculous…


image

Beautiful People, I’m probably not going to get in today to cover the trial… This is what I found when I rocked up at 8:07. The line is now equally as long behind me. I’m suspecting some are just here… Ok no… All BUT the regulars are just here for the sensationalism. [JUST TO CLARIFY – FOR THE LOVE OF GOD…. I WASN’T TALKING ABOUT THE SENSATIONALISM OF THE TRIAL. I WAS TALKING ABOUT THE SENSATIONALISM OF GBC TAKING THE STAND. The fact that there was about 3 million more people than normal today indicates to me that people were there just for the spectacle. Sound off below if you think I’m wrong or you have a different view]. I could be wrong but can think of no other reason for the sudden surge in numbers. And I don’t think I need to say, that pisses me off (sorry, Robbo)… But I can’t cover a trial for you if I’m not in the bloody courtroom!! And more importantly, we can’t support Allison and her family.

UPDATE: I’ll get in. It won’t be at the front but I should still at least be able to hear. Xx

    • I’m in! Sitting in dock :P Overflow court again. Couldn’t sleep last night… New today would be bizarre. Think we might actually get to crux of matter by this arvo!

        • LJC is informing others from different parts of the country information regarding a very horrible criminal trial. I thank her for bringing the court to our home computers. My perception is that LJC has no pedestal, rather a unique skill in giving the rest of Australia information regarding this case. She is one smart lady. Please don’t think of her intelligence as being high and mighty because she is not. Her writing is skilled and informative.

        • Actually JNR, I was referring to the sensationalism of GBC being I the stand. I realise half of Australia has an interest. It’s why we attend court everyday. To bring information to those who can’t be there who are passionate about finding justice for Allison and in support of her family, to show them the ‘everyday’ people care about their daughter. So I’m really sorry you were offended. A good number of people left today when they realised it wasn’t as exciting as they thought it would be. Are you still going to tell me that they were there for the right reasons? Maybe some were. But definitely not all.

          • LJC you are doing a fantastic job. For the past couple of years I wanted to be in Brissie for this trial (from Melb) but couldn’t make it. You are so helpful for me. Don’t take any notice of that critical person (BR was it?) Keep up the great work and thank you very much. Unfortunately I have a horrible feeling the creep will get off. Gee I hopw I am wrong. Everyone knows he did it but has it been proved beyond reasonable doubt. Maybe not … grrrrrrrrrrr

            • JNR is their name, Jenny, but it’s OK. I’ve dealt with it and ‘moved forward’. haha. I can’t post anymore until after the verdict but I really think, having been in the courtroom, the prosecution did what they needed to do to push this beyond reasonable doubt. It’s different if you are only seeing Twitter feeds and the news but when you’re there and the ‘bare bones’ the media gives you has extra meat on it, there’s no doubt. At least not in my mind! It’s the jury that have to find him guilty/not guilty though :-/

          • I reread that 4 times, your wording was referring to the public attending court to my and others I asked for their opinion. please don’t split straws, i’ll ask other readers how they interpret it? by the way what were you doing sitting in the dock, that’s for the accused. try [public gallery] the bench is for the judge. do you need any more tips,as you obviously have limited knowledge.

            • ?/ Who gives a flying about the correct terminology? My interest in her blog is to hear things I won’t hear elaborated on in the media. Someone needs to pull their head in. If you are so concerned with everything being right then why bother even coming here.

            • Actually, I was sitting in the dock of the overflow court and just for you, I’ve updated the post with what I actually meant. I re-read it to me and my original meaning as I explained was quite clear to me. And I don’t think you can ask other readers because your comments aren’t showing up on the site but I’ll ask them for you.

  2. Oh No! I rely on your’re brilliantly witty accounts of the happenings in the GCB case. Now what I am going to do for the rest of the day? You’re sheer narrative is informative and I have been literally pissing myself ( bearing 5 kids has that effect), at GBC’s expense! What’s a girl to do?
    It is sad that you cannot be there to give your support to Allison’s family, as they need it.

  3. Sorry, I am anal retentive (sorry Robbo) and used a naughty contraction. Please replace ‘you’re,’ folks with ‘your.’
