Is it just me, or do the trials of Maryanne Thompson and Phillip Field look like political trials more than genuine criminal trials? Perhaps “payback” for the failure to ping well-connected politicians from the previous regime when they were in power?
Frankly, having heard the evidence against Field I’m still no clearer than I was before what he’s actually done wrong . And as far as Maryanne Thompson’s PhD thesis at the London School of Economics goes, the witnesses from the London School of Economics hardly covered themselves in glory when they had to explain how they’d lost it “down a black hole,” and why they never effectively communicated regarding her oral examination.
No, these two look like to me nothing more than political trials, complete the with backdrop of barbarians baying for blood that every political trial has ever had.
