    that makes me so damn angry. How dare he make no mention of his wife!!! He spent 11 days out in the wet and the cold. His girls spent 11 days having no idea if mummy was coming home or not. To not speak up for her but to speak up for his business??? What kind of a person can do that? And what's with the hobo chic he's rocking at the moment? Crisp white shirt with a face like Grizzly Adams?

    Guilty or not, this guy really peeves me <insert swearing rant here>

    Nope - my original post was not that local men would be jealous of him, I'm afraid. I said some of them might or could have been jealous of him because of what they preceived his situation to be. There's a vast difference in meaning between would , might and could, if one goes to the finer points of language. I didn't state anything as fact. Even on this forum however, many threads ago, some guy wrote in complaining about having met GBC while looking at properties. The prospective buyer was miffed because of the way GBC had (apparently) flirted with his wife - no doubt due to a smidgeon (at least!) of jealousy.

    Well we know where his priorities are and have been.

    The Dickies were at the command post day after day, Gerard was in his office.

    Disgusting insult to break his silence for this self promotion. IMO

    In Australia we don't have murder 1. I am not sure of Hawkins qualifications. But he seems to have a fair grasp of the legal side, and I kind if feel innapropriate posting on it because I probably don't have the same knowledge. But I believe you are charged with Murder or Manslaughter. Its then up to legal to prove this in the trial.

    Speculating, 'pressure cooker' effect within the confines of the family? My opinion only, not fact.

    One of my clients runs a Property Management business with a large rent roll( 10 property managers)and it is on the third floor. She moved from a main road shop front and cut her rent in half. It hasnt affected her business in a negative way.

    Also regarding property sales, gone are the days where people went from agent to agents window to search out properties, it is all on the internet now.

    I once was in a relationship with someone with whom my counsellor described as a pyshcopath.

    He was someone who had been able to get away with whatever he wanted in life by saying he was sorry and was even in his adult years rewarded by his parents after it was discovered that he had been having affairs (multiple). They rewarded him by buying him a boat and sending him a birthday card, soon after the discovery, telling him what a good person he was and how proud of him they were, all within days of our daughter being born.

    He was never held accountable for his actions until I called an end to the relationship and then it was the end of the world to him and he proceeded to stalk me. (he had no concern at all about losing contact with his daughter only me who he regarded as his)
    When I first saw GBC he reminded me soooo much of my ex.

    NO. I don't think it would be due to a 'smidgeon' of jealousy. Probably due more to the fact the GBC showed no respect by flirting with this man's wife. I mean, come on.

    "GERARD Baden-Clay has denied his Century 21 Westside Taringa real estate agency is on the rocks."

    "It's very much business as usual and that's what we'd like to get out there," he told The Courier-Mail in the shopping centre's underground carpark."

    So there you have it, straight from the horses mouth.

    Can WS members understand from this statement that any alleged defamation does not seem to have had an impact as it is "very much business as usual" ?

    No opinion, just asking a question based on his press statement.

    This guy definitely needs a P.R. Guy, he's not making himself any more popular. Think any support he may have left would be gone after "business as usual" comment. Oh dear, it just gets worse!!!!:banghead::rocker:

    Hi Nads - if you find my post #1098 (or perhaps someone can tell me how to repost?) we were discussing the elements of murder and manslaughter back there. This may help.

    Just to add to help find it, it was on thread number 6.

    The comments from the commissioner sums up exactly what a few of us have said.
    "When you're an investigator . . . you have to get it right. You don't get a second chance," he said.

    "Everything that they do has got to be done properly in a considered way to gain all the evidence possible before they make a move."

    "When and if we decide to prosecute anyone, we have to make sure that we've got that as right as we can and we've done all we can in that space beforehand."


    No second chances. Got to get it right to get the conviction. And that takes as long as necessary. MAking me wonder though if this is going to take alot longer than we might have thought.
