Quote of the day

Mrs. Claire Blackman, the wife of Sgt Alexander Blackman of the Royal Marines (whose case is to be heard this week by the Courts Martial Appeal Court):
“They [the seven members of the court-martial board] were all senior officers, and he is a senior NCO, a non-commissioned officer. A civilian jury would have had a better understanding of the situation from a more neutral and equitable starting point. Rank does not play a part in a civilian jury.”
