Judgement Day

And so the fateful February 6 dawns and Mrs Christine Hemming must present herself for trial at Birmingham Crown Court and subject herself to the verdict of a jury of her peers.

I wonder if the CPS will decline to present any evidence?

UPDATE: Today was a plea and case management meeting before the Recorder of Birmingham. Mrs Hemming has entered a plea of not guilty to the charges and will face trial on the 21 June. A date for your diaries.

Ridiculous waste of public money. John Hemming - what a joke

Sorry to disappoint you but there will be no jury today. She is submitting a plea. Do you seriously think the CPS would have gone this far without any evidence?

Indeed Emily, my mistake in not reading the court lists in advance. The court will assemble in June for the longest day.

I look forward to the trial of the century.

If one were being cynical one could say she is dragging things out to cast as much adverse publicity against her husband as possible

Vince, that is a very cynical point of view.

It may also be a very accurate one.

I saw Chrisitne with her husband in Covent Garden yesterday.

Examine the facts of who published what and when.

We will all have a chance to feast on the evidence.
