Fresh Eire

To return to the case of our two Irish thieves; the defendants were unrepresented and they gave evidence, one after the other, of how they had bought the property in question in a pub, ten minutes before the police stopped them, and that the seller was a fella called Sean, but they didn't know his other name. Sean didn't sound like much of a businessman, as he had sold them £2500 worth of stuff for £70 cash "because he needed some more cash for a drink". Both men punctuated their evidence with "so I did" and "so he was" and when we retired the first thing one of my colleagues said was "They're guilty, so they are".
