    Whatever the reason, I suspect a “difficult” question from the State’s legal team, Marie Farrell’s evidence will come with a heavy warning from the judge. Were I a juror, in coming to a conclusion, I’m not sure I would feel in any way comfortable relying on Marie Farrell’s testimony.

        Considering the pig’s ear she’s made of this, and the standard of policing carried out by the guards in West Cork, I’m sure an actual murder trial in Ireland would never have resulted in a conviction.

        Is it any wonder the boys in blue wanted the whole thing shifted over to France? A mad Englishman up on charges of murdering a French celebrity WAG in Ireland would have been a great story for the French press, what with the possibility of an affair, dancing lesbians under a full moon and all set on the backdrop of the Irish countryside. A French jury would probably have saw it as a real life version of the Wicker Man crossed with Roman Polanski, and convicted Bailey readily.

        In Ireland, on the other hand, it would seem too far fetched. A figment of the imagination of the crazy guards in West Cork. No wonder the DPP didn’t charge him.

    Traditionally witnesses were expected to jump out of the witness box and go Tah-Dah! this practice has of late been discouraged for health and safety concerns.

      It does seem that way but who the hell knows what is going on in this woman’s mind? Another farcical twist in this saga…This legal pantomime must be unbelievably difficult for the family of Sophie Toscan du Plantier.

    Woman is clearly under huge pressure, whether duly or unduly. I’d be concerned for her mental health right now.

    can you just walk out ot court as a witness? if she was giving evidence does the judge not have to dismiss her, why was she not stopped at the door….

      It is a Civil Case and she isn’t compelled to be there, nor is she to be detained in the Court room hence no one stopping her.

  5. Just sayin'

    This woman has no credibility at all. Doesn’t matter what she says at this stage, having repeatedly lied under oath and changed her story. She’s seriously odd though.

      And seems to see herself as a hot piece of ass, too. Men are literally dropping their pants in front of her.
