It is interesting to note that Nigel Sweeney QC is the Prosecuting Counsel in this case.
Those with reasonable memories may recall Sweeney was the prosecuting Counsel in the case of the fascist nailbomber David Copeland. Discussing that trial, Sweeney made the following comments at the 2001 British Academy of Forensic Sciences Friends dinner, at the Law Society on 22 February 2001:
"This was my 39th and last terrorist case".
Clearly Mr Sweeney had forgotten the old principle of "Never Say Never"..........
