Reason Found Inexpedient
8 July 2018 Daily Question
We are all innocent until proven
Does this apply in uncomfortable scenarios like Salisbury?
This Question was asked on BBC Radio 4 Any Questions, 7 July 2018.
The answer is NO according to all members of the panel.
Chuka Umunna MP said "evidence strongly suggests" the Russian State is responsible.
Baroness Deech said "the balance of probabilities," confirms that The Russian State is responsible.
Maria Caulfield MP "the balance of probabilities" confirms that The Russian State is responsible.
Martin Lewis was happy to conclude that The Russian State is responsible.
Jonathan Dimbleby is perhaps the first BBC presenter to suggest that the panel's judgements were all based on "circumstantial evidence."
Nevertheless Putin was duly found Guilty of the Salisbury poisonings by the entire panel.
The fictitious Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq were also found to exist after due consideration of "the balance of probabilities."
However when reason is found to be politically inexpedient those that think like this panel are found indulging in a Witch Hunt, by definition.
