    Definately got preferencial treatment.
    Still guilty of violent conduct surely.

    I did wonder how someone actually managed to get a visa to play in Australia...with a pending violent charge over his head.

    The normal man....Would of been sent back on a plane immediately.
    It used to be a prerequisite for getting into Australia that you needed a criminal conviction.

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    The last bit is significant in that I think it means that even if the jury thought Stokes wasn't defending anyone and/or wasn't using reasonable force, if the jury thinks that a hypothetical bystander, the "person of reasonable firmness", wouldn't have feared for their safety then he's not guilty of affray.
    Thanks. I didnít have a clue how to copy thast across from twitter.

    Whereas stealing someone else's line, particularly at Fringe time, should be a hanging offence on here.

    Apologies I didn't get that far down before posting. If it helps, I'm already a botanist.
