Post  Not Born Yesterday on Thu 31 Jan - 12:38

I can't recall now if it was actually JATYK2 but that's certainly a place I don't recommend to the squeamish!

I was a latecomer to this case (2009) and I came across sceptic sites first and was intrigued by what I found; until then all I knew was what the media felt we ought to know.

I then thought that, to be fair, I needed to look at the pro sites to get the other side of the story. Oh dear, what an eye opener that was, nothing but hate-filled hags screaming abuse!

If there is a pro site out there which debates the issues sensibly and without abuse, I haven't found it yet.

Visiting the dark side should always be preceded by a risk assessment.

For a chronic old hypertensive like me, it's really not worth the red mist.

And all those Karen Silkwood-style contamination scrub-downs I had to suffer on the way out were playing havoc with my sensitive skin ......

Post  Me on Thu 31 Jan - 13:28

I made my feelings clear about Libel in the Uk on Jillís site which did cause consternation with Tony. I donít want to add too much at this stage given Tonyís impending case (but I hope to provide further information when the case is over) other than it's a sad state of affairs when the US Congress has to pass legislation to protect its citizens from the UKís libel laws.

In relation to the very large big guns aimed at him right now, itís my belief that they are terrified of a full libel trial which will allow all the information that Tony has amassed over the years to come out in (presumably) an open court.

I would assume they are throwing all this at him to try and ensure that the undertakings are kept in place and to avoid a full libel trial at all costs.

So I donít think itís so much about attacking Tony per se its more about protecting the status quo and ensuring the absence of information in the wider public arena continues.

I think Esther McVey left because even though she publicly announced that the Fund would not pay for Legal Expenses Gerry took advice from some Legal Eagle and was told it was O.K.. Probably it was Carter Ruck who advised Gerry .

Today Carter-Ruck have informed me of their total costs in the case of McCanns v Bennett, which they expect to claim from me if they win on Wednesday, i.e. prove me guilty of contempt of court. They are as follows:

1. Solicitors' fees of Carter-Ruck to date:

£181,245

2. Disbursements: Court fees, process servers & couriers:

£1,484

3. Fees of Jacob Dean, barrister, for all hearings to date and advice:

£25,475

4. Fees of Adrienne Page Q.C., for advice and a 2-day hearing:

£32,250

5. VAT on all the above

£48,049

GRAND TOTAL:

£288,503



So much for this sentence on pages 289-290 of 'madeleine', by Dr Kate McCann:

"Adam Tudor and his colleague Isabel Hudson continue to do a vast amount of work for us, without payment, most of it quietly, behind the scenes"

Carter Ruck charge £600 per hour , from day 1 the McCanns employed CR because they were afraid they were going to be extradited . When that fear proved unfounded they could have engaged a Lawyer for half the cost , even used Smethurst , a Corporate Lawyer to list the charges against Tony. Basically, Tony is being accused of flouting an undertaking not to engage in any Libellous activities or sell any more copies of his book.. I am just wondering whether a Judge would query the cost incurred by the Plaintiff and if Tony is found guilty , reduce the fine.

Where's that "81 Lies And Counting" thread?

I agree:

I suspect the outcomes will be

a. Low end of Scale punishment (Possibly Absolute Discharge)

b. Ordered to pay nominal costs of 1p

c. Admonition of the Plaintiff for the cost and effort put into their undertaking

So if Tony lost the case could he appeal and take the case right up to the European Court of Human Rights?

I doubt it MaryB because he renaged on a deal not to sell his book, which he did, and probably on JH's site made libelous comments.

Other members' comments relating to ES were also removed. I was chuffed to have been one of them!

I don't think that anyone other than Team McCann and their hate-filled harpy followers would find anything that Tony has ever said to be libellous.

Truth hurts, as my mother would have said.

If the Mccanns are saying TB said anything libellious then the PJ must have said something libellious as well and everyone else who said the same as the PJ so the fact they are not suing the PJ means they are having a personal vendetta of harrassment against TB.

I don't see wht he couldn't appeal if he wanted to do so after he exhausted all his possibilities in the UK. I don't know how it works in the UK but anyone can appeal a court case here in Portugal up until it gets to the Supreme Court and if they are still not satisfied they can go to the ECHR.

I think it was selling that book and asking the buyer to make the cheque payable to his wife wot dun it. He maybe made comments on JH's show as well. I'm sure he has written on there the exact charges he faces.
