I have been tied up lately with a number of pressing legal issues – some of which are positive and others not so much – as well as working on a number of new projects. An update will be sent in coming days.
In the meantime, I am pleased that Jim From Boomba has returned to the fray and will be posting regularly here into the future. He is after your commentary as he likes arguing.
It has just been confirmed that the High Court has accepted Cardinal Pell’s appeal.
This is great news and confirms how serious the circumstances surrounding his conviction are.
Make no mistake – reputations will be utterly and irretrievably destroyed by whatever decision the High Court ultimately reaches.
If Cardinal Pell’s conviction is upheld, that is the end of him, forever and ever.
And the Catholic Church will also suffer reputational damage of the most serious order (not that it hasn’t already – most of it self-inflicted).
But – if the conviction is overturned, two judges of the Victorian Court of Appeal may well be exposed as partisan, legal incompetents whose continued presence on that bench is untenable.
If Pell is acquitted, those judges might need to search the web for further employment opportunities.
And Premier Andrews will have to see that they do so with impressive alacrity.
Further – if Pell is acquitted, then legions of anti-Catholic, leftoid sneerers and jeerers will also have to eat humble pie, admit that they have been mercilessly hounding a man who, like Linda Chamberlain, faced false and terrible accusations – and publicly acknowledge that Pell is innocent.
Chances of that happening?
Probably a big, fat zero.
Leftards don’t do humility.
We shall see.
The next 12 months are going to be tumultuous indeed.
And they will go down in Australian legal history.
Please God justice is done.
Let me know your thoughts below and I’ll certainly respond if they deserve to be pilloried.
