I know as Scarlet fans we have not had a lot of good news lately. But I just heard 2 cracking pieces of good news firstly Piers Morgan has lost his American show and Dave Lee Travis is going back to trial on 2 further charges.
To be a Scarlet is as good as it gets

It's actually a retrial of two of the original charges that the jury were unable to reach a verdict on Baz !

Is this pursuit of Travis in the Public Interest (a key legal test) I ask, by an inept CPS wanting to save face, re at worst, an alleged groper- for events what, 30 years ago? It must have cost thousands and thousands in costs for us taxpayers and Travis likewise it seems in his own legal fees.

Saville was the real deal-slimey /evil rapist and a total pervert. Rot in hell to him!
 
Morgan is just smug and conceited -he must be getting bit worried re the phonehacking stuff now though -I smell a rat !

Piers Morgan cannot be innocent with regards to the phone hacking.
He had a lot of power then, and knowing the kind of bloke he is, there's no way things like that we're happening without him knowing.

Good post. Travis is clearly not another Savile - is it worth spending public money on another trial? (I'm not a fan, BTW.)

Morgan is a pain in the backside - how I laughed, as Brett Lee broke his ribs! We'll see if he's guilty of ordering or condoning hacking.

Reesytheexile has experience in the field of law and posts with great sense.

To whom is the CPS accountable? Why should they be allowed to bring cases against people without a shred of physical evidence? If the accused is proven innocent, they are often bankrupt through the legal costs - correct me if that's wrong - whereas the accusers have nothing to pay.

Maybe it would be better if the accused was indemnified from their legal costs if found innocent. If there was more duty of care with spending taxpayers (our) money, the CPS would be much more responsible.

Too many folk have ability to spend other people's money without enough comeback if it is done irresponsibly.
