SCOOP COMMENT & OPINION

Justice: Seditionist Will Eat Xmas Pud In Clink -

My release date is 4 April 2007. The date of my appeal hearing is 22 February 2007. Mathematics was never my strong suit, but isn’t that only about five and a half weeks before I’m going to be getting out anyway?! (Does Terence Arnold set the fixtures dates?). Can I appeal the appeal date? See... Justice Delayed… [1]

    Foleygate: - Suzan Mazur - Where Do Congressmen Have Their Trysts?
