RE: CWC Final - Black Caps v England
How about wickets lost in the deciding Super Over?
Ok, OK I'll get my coat.
We wouldn't have run that $%^&ing second run then
Well, technically, you didn’t...
Oy, you! Sling yer ‘ook. We don’t stand for that kind of thing in here. Oh, and you’re barred.
RE: TRC: Pumas v All Blacks
@Machpants disagree because these are the same issues we have been having against good structured D for a few years.
The drop balls are a result of pressure caused by D. We looked rushed rather than threatening. Happening too often. ABs are a tempo team and when teams slow us down it becomes a contest, Eng/Ire/SA having better players at exploiting than Argies. Just structure and issues are same
Largely agree Game was reminiscent of their last 2 games on 2018 EOYT
Eng and Ire played a similar game and both sides were the better side
Sadly for Pumas they did not take their chances and lost the game like Eng
ABs had 23 turnovers & about 13-14 handling errors There was definitely an air of panic in their attack ALOT of 50-50 passes being chucked around carelessly Albeit under immense defensive duress by ARG
Gap has closed btw ABs and rest of Tier 1 nations post 2015 RWC
Do you not understand the concept of keeping your powder dry?
Especially in a friendly.

RE: Tommy Robinson
@jegga Hey mate, you’ve made a mistake. That lady in the picture you posted has all her buttons done up.
Do you really want to see a revealing photo of present day babs?
Very much yes. Oh wait, babs? I thought you said baps.
TBF @jegga I didn’t think you were that choosy.
RE: Tommy Robinson
Is his sentence standard for that type of offence? @Siam mentioned some examples where only fines were issued. Does the punishment fit the crime so to speak?
Is it also standard to put people convicted of a crime like this into a maximum security facility? I'm not sure where he is, but iirc he was in one last time.
If you read the judgement you will see that it isn't as simple as that. He was on a suspended sentence for the same thing. That was his 'light' sentence given as a warning not to do it again. In the judge's eyes he failed to hold his end of that bargain then deliberately tried to skirt his way around the next court order and put a number of prosecutions in jeopardy. Time for a smack.
I do agree that Judges tend to hold themselves and the court in ridiculously high esteem at times so anything that comes across as disrespecting themis dealt with harshly. But that applies to everyone.
As for the prison. The suspicion is that he is at Belmarsh which is Max security. It is also where anyone convicted at the Old Bailey is taken to while the prison service allocates them a new home. If their conviction (or likely time spent) is short then it is easier to keep them there.
There is also the possibility that if he has future court appearances to attend he will be kept in the most convenient place to transfer him back and forth. I guess he has the civil suit of libel from the 16 year old that he falsely accused of attacking schoolgirls on facebook in the wings.
Well it is pretty simple because there must be previous case law concerning this. So it doesn't answer my question.
Case law doesn’t apply to how a judge deals with contempt. Each case is decided on its merits and is at the sole discretion of the judge, who in charge of their own courtroom. In this case the appeal was only heard as the court itself and the prison service made errors of procedure which was due to the judge’s inexperience with contempt proceedings, because they are rare.
Same with the prison. Is it normal for people guilty of what Robinson did to be placed with the general population in a maximum security prison? Same applies to "convenience" as well.
The rules, are:
Rule 7 (3) of the Prison Rules 1999 provides: “Classification of prisoners
7.(3) Prisoners committed or attached for contempt of court, or for failing to do or abstain from doing anything required to be done or left undone:
Judgment Approved by the court for handing down.
Yaxley-Lennon v R
(a) shall be treated as a separate class for the purposes of this rule;
(b) notwithstanding anything in this rule, may be permitted to associate with any other class of prisoners if they are willing to do so; and
(c) shall have the same privileges as an unconvicted prisoner under rules 20(5), 23(1) and 35(1).”
He didn’t get those privileges in his first committal, (because the court mistakenly recorded a conviction rather than a contempt order) and he was legally entitled to them. The verdict around that said:
“Accordingly, the classification of the appellant as a convicted prisoner has had the effect of depriving him of privileges relating to: visits by his doctor or dentist, the freedom to choose what clothes to wear and the absence of restrictions on prison visits and the sending and receipt of letters.
We have noted already that under section 258 Criminal Justice Act 2003 a person committed to prison for contempt is entitled to be released unconditionally after serving one half of the term for which he was committed. A convicted prisoner, in contrast, will be subject to release on licence with the attendant risk of recall.
Finally, in this regard, the judge imposed a victim surcharge which, pursuant to The Criminal Justice Act 2003 (Surcharge) (Amendment) Order 2016, is payable only in the event of the passing of a “sentence of imprisonment” and not upon a committal for contempt.”
That was why he was allowed to appeal.
