What's The Buzz?.....Tell Us What's A Happenin'!


Something's going down in the RailGate courtroom before Martyn Brown takes the stand this morning.

Our good friend Mary has the story, straight from the Supreme Court Announcement List....

BC Rail corruption trial continues today in BCSupreme Court Room 54 at 10:00 AM .

A very brief listing for the three Accused (File #23299) -- in Courtroom 54 -- today May 19, 2010 at 10:00 AM:

Application to withdraw the admissions filed on February 10, 2010.
Application to withdraw the admissions filed on February 10, 2010.



What's it all about Alfie?

Or should we say Billy?

Why Billy?

Well, Ian Reid, who hasn't steered us wrong on this matter yet, left this comment over at Mary's place that could be very illuminating, indeed:

Application to withdraw the admissions?

The defense hasn't made any admissions. Therefore this isn't a defense application. And that means it's either an SP or gov't application to withdraw evidence already entered. And the SP wouldn't be doing that so it must be the government.

In other words isn't this an attempt by the government to withdraw evidence they've been forced to provide by one of Bennett's orders? Or to change Bennett's order so they don't have to provide some incriminating docs?


If something like this is going down, will we even know?

I mean, if it is not done in open court, with the jury present, will the publication ban keep it secret?

And even if it's not, will the fully-accredited sheep herd even report on it?

I am just impressed that someone quoted a chorus line from Jesus Christ Superstar.

I suppose it's appropriate. Watching this soap opera dribble out makes a guy mutter: "Jesus Christ, Superstar!"
