I am among the many who had always thought David Bain guilty. .. But still, until a week ago, I would have said to anyone who asked that Bain was guilty. Not now. Not on the balance of probabilities. .. Collins' criticisms sparked my interest to read the reports. Previously, I had relied only on media reports of the Bain case. ..I then read Binnie. It's hard having a deeply held prejudice overturned. But I was entranced. It is beautifully written and clearly presented. But, more especially, here is the product of a fine mind critically cutting to the chase. Justice Binnie obviously has done the hard work. He's considered the many issues. He's weighed them, presented his conclusions with his reasoning and the evidence. He's done the job asked of him. ..Justice Binnie - and the Privy Council - raise a disturbing question about whether our justice system has the ability to self-correct. The Government's response, sadly for us, provides the answer, loud and clear.
