David Bain compensation

This is not a post about David Bain. It just looks that way.

So late last year I posted an inexcusably long, meandering (and, let's be brutally honest, criminally self-indulgent) meditation on Ian Binnie's report on David Bain's "innocence" and Robert Fisher's criticisms of that report.

This is the last word on the David Bain case. There will never be, nor need to be, another thing written about it ever again. Do you believe me much?

In my first ever Pundit post on the David Bain saga, I expressed a fear that touching it might lead me to suffer the same fate as Br’er Rabbit when he foolishly chose to engage with Br’er Fox’s Tar Baby.

Justice Minister Judith Collins' silence on why she had sought a second opinion on the Bain compensation was prompting speculation she was shopping for a verdict. But who knew she's respond like this?

Judith 'Crusher' Collins is back at it. Having had little luck actually crushing cars, today she's using her vice to scrunch the reputations of Justice Ian Binnie from Canada, and her own predecessor as Justice Minister, Simon Power. You have to love that you won't die wondering with Collins!
