ATTENTION, MELBOURNE CRIMINALS January 27, 2006 kim lien Many Posts 0 If you’re thinking of hiring lawyer Mr Lefty to argue your case, you might do well to examine his forensic courtroom technique first. Posted by Tim B. on 01/27/2006 at 10:26 AM Mr. Lefty seems like one angry individual. Have you been ignoring him, Tim? Posted by RebeccaH on 2006 01 27 at 12:06 PM • permalink the poofter has a picture of a boned leg of lamb on his site. i mean, half the fun of yummy roast lamb is carving it off the bone. real men don’t mind food coming from animals. but hang on, come to think of it, that roast looks suspiciously like beef. typical lefty – even lying about his dinner cute cat though. perhaps we can steal it & give it a better home Posted by KK on 2006 01 27 at 01:01 PM • permalink He’s probably the kind of lawyer who you’d hire to defend you on a parking ticket violation, and he’d manage somehow to get the charge changed to manslaughter. Posted by paco on 2006 01 27 at 01:17 PM • permalink He’s probably the kind of lawyer who you’d hire to defend you on a parking ticket violation, and he’d manage somehow to get the charge changed to manslaughter. Then plea bargain down to 10 years in prison and brag about how well he did. Posted by Rob Crawford on 2006 01 27 at 04:24 PM • permalink Tim, you’re not a journalist. You’re just some dude on teh intarweb. Respect Mr. Lefty’s authoritah in this matter! Posted by Some0Seppo on 2006 01 27 at 05:15 PM • permalink Jesus, that was a rout if ever I saw one. Posted by James Waterton on 2006 01 27 at 05:33 PM • permalink Slightly off-topic, but relating to #3 and #4: The mobster was on trial, facing a possible life sentence, but his lawyer bribed a juror to hold out for a lesser charge. After hours of deliberation, the jury returned a verdict of manslaughter. Afterwards, the lawyer approached the juror. “You had me worried! When the jury took so long, I was afraid you wouldn’t be able to pull it off.” “I was worried, too!” answered the juror. “All the others wanted to acquit him!” Posted by david on 2006 01 27 at 06:01 PM • permalink Jeremy (Mr Lefty) has a very poor record on balance in his own blogs . And he thinks that if he states something then it is clearly proven. Sadly for him this is not the case. He does not understand basics when it comes to deduction likewise if he does start a blog about Tim Blair’s blog he will be banning his critics at every opportunity . Just one small comment of the cat pictures he seems so fond of at Anonymous lefty; dogs have masters but cats have slaves ….. Posted by Iain on 2006 01 27 at 06:30 PM • permalink But I like cats! —Nora Posted by The Thin Man Returns on 2006 01 27 at 06:43 PM • permalink http://iambeingnice.blogspot.com/Forensic skills (sic)shown by Mr Lefty even when the issue is so important to himself. He does a great line in implied denial Posted by Iain on 2006 01 27 at 06:48 PM • permalink yes Nora I like cats as well , if they are cooked right :o) Posted by Iain on 2006 01 27 at 07:14 PM • permalink Some of Jeremy’s responses to criticism on The Spin Starts Here make for amusing reading also. Proof positive that the moonbats have zero sense of humour. Posted by Jay Santos on 2006 01 27 at 07:19 PM • permalink Yes he takes himself so serriously but lacks the courage to put his name to his own words. Posted by Iain on 2006 01 27 at 07:25 PM • permalink hmmmmm i’ve been on holidays recently (away from a computer) and i can see that one of my pet shrubs (david heidelberg) has become over-grown. i think it’s time i loped some branches off our arab impersonating left-bat and his alter ego Mushtaq Omar http://waksedsak.blogspot.com/2005/12/blogger-anonymity-is-spineless.html Posted by Mospact on 2006 01 27 at 07:35 PM • permalink His last comment from his post: Hmm. Suddenly an influx of visitors who’ve never been here before, enthusiastically supporting Tim Blair and convinced he’s slaughtering me in the argument. (Oh no! Well, if they think so, it must be true.) If that was any indciation of his skill as a lawyer I can just imagine how shocked he must get when a guilty verdict is handed down and not even noticing during the trial that everytime he opened his mouth the person he was trying to defend was cringing. Posted by Melanie on 2006 01 27 at 07:57 PM • permalink his forensic courtroom technique Hey, as long as it’s good enough to, say, keep people like Bryan Law and his equally batshit crazy wife out of prison after they’ve once again broken through a military compound fence with the help of wooden spoons and performance art or something, Lefty’ll be set for life. Posted by PW on 2006 01 27 at 08:39 PM • permalink PS: He can stay a lefty, for all I care. I don’t think he’d make for any kind of good conservative…some turds are simply beyond polishing. Maybe it’ll be his picture on the 2050s mandatory news-aggregator PDAs, now that Margo won’t be available. Posted by PW on 2006 01 27 at 08:51 PM • permalink I’m so glad he finds Tim new and exciting.. he appears to lead a dull life.. Posted by crash on 2006 01 28 at 12:40 AM • permalink Mr Lefty said at his blog in the comments that: Guys. There’s a huge difference between the research effort someone might put in on something that matters (for example at work), and simply making an observation on a blog. Duh. Lets hope his legal opinions are better than his blog observations. Posted by lingus4 on 2006 01 28 at 02:22 AM • permalink Does anyone have a link to Mr Lefty? Why is he so bad? Does someone have a link to court transcripts? Posted by pieface on 2006 01 28 at 06:35 AM • permalink found the link to mr lefty – but what is the story, did he and tim have a bit of a spat? Posted by pieface on 2006 01 28 at 06:38 AM • permalink Pieface If you want to research Mr lefty’s court performance look for transcripts which feature Walter Jeremy Sear, Barrister.and If you find any thing intresting let us all know :o) Posted by Iain on 2006 01 28 at 07:12 AM • permalink Has any one seen the latest post at Jeremy’s blogNow he is being funny Posted by Iain on 2006 01 28 at 08:15 AM • permalink Readin Mrlefty’s replies was like being beaten with a Nerf bat. Posted by ushie on 2006 01 28 at 01:45 PM • permalink Tim — But your title for this thread puzzles me. Are you warning criminals away from Mr. Lefty’s services? Or do you want them to engage him because that is the greatest contribution Mr. Lefty can make to fighting crime…? Posted by richard mcenroe on 2006 01 28 at 02:01 PM • permalink Are you warning criminals away from Mr. Lefty’s services? Or do you want them to engage him because that is the greatest contribution Mr. Lefty can make to fighting crime…? Having to be represented by Lefty clearly constitutes cruel and unusual punishment, even before the actual verdict is handed down… Posted by PW on 2006 01 28 at 02:22 PM • permalink The Hack has been telling Lefty for ages now he should take up a career in conveyancing and be done with it. Some of my personal favourite Lefty arguments have been: * The Hack must be unemployed because he is able to blog/comment during 9-5 hours. Lefty, too, blogs/comments during this time of day… * Any comment on TSSH that is mean to Lefty and that I don’t immediately delete or censor MUST actually have been written by ME. I’ve lost track of how many personalities he and his idiot circle-jerkers have accused me of having (even though my site has several authors, supposedly I’ve written everything on there too.) * The words “request” and “clarify” are interchangable and anyone who doesn’t know that isn’t fit to be a journalist. Those are just a few I can remember off the top of my head. He’s a goldmine of stupidity. I’ll miss him now he’s threatened never to come back again. In short, if I ever found myself in a court room and Lefty was the barrister on the other side, I’d sack mine, go down to the pub and just phone it in.

Posted by crash on 2006 01 29 at 10:14 AM • permalink Found Mr Lefty in the victorian bar website – however e-research skills have left me sadly unequipped for further delving. Did Mr Lefty not defend Tim very well in a court case or something? Posted by pieface on 2006 01 30 at 08:46 AM • permalink I don’t think Tim would be stupid enough to hire Mr Lefty to defend him. Posted by Caz on 2006 01 30 at 09:15 AM • permalink I’m a member of the Bar and am expected to takeany brief offered, and wouldn’t want people thinking that my politics would interfere with my professional duties. Jeremy says he will represent any one at all so maybe he would speak for Tim but some how I think Tim would choose a barrister who argues better than Jeremy Sear does .
