Okay I’m in court 7 public gallery - much better in that I can almost see what’s happening and nearly hear what’s going on, but at the moment that is frankly not quite good enough and I don’t want to get in trouble with the court for failing to report this properly.

I was, I was booted out after the morning ruling into Court 6 - the overflow court. I have now left that and snuck into the public gallery at Court 7 which is better, but I can’t hear or see much more.

LJH we did not make any allegation - either in law - all I did if one looks at teh transcript was to bring to the court’s attention all we knew at that point in time. And all we knew was that Mr Page had sent an email to the Post Office and that he had seen the documents.

… duty to consider the interests of justice and the integrity of the processes of the court. LJH insofar as PM is concerned no process has begun and that process will begin when and if it should. We say EH’s submissions are entirely misconceived.
