    All those magazine articles which cite experts, advising that if you suspect your partner is having an affair, you're probably correct

    NBC, OW, GBC, all recounting endlessly about Allison's depression

    No wonder she was depressed. Her spouse had been having affairs throughout. Those who're having affairs are invariably distant from their partner, critical of their partner and generally uncaring of their partner


    Allison picked up on what was going on, but most probably dismissed from her mind the possibility GBC was having one affair, let alone multiples. So she blamed herself. Told herself she expected too much, maybe. Told herself that GBC must consider her boring, unsexy, etc

    Then, late in the day and after years of an unsatisfactory marriage and relationship, she learned a little of the truth. It would have been a body-blow, but at the same time, would have answered so many questions

    I do not believe -- no, I do not -- that GBC had such a monumental sex drive. He's one of the most prissy, unsexy men I've observed. It's my belief GBC knew what a premium Allison would have placed on fidelity and sought to torture her by stealth. The reason being, in my opinion, that he's a gender-confused misogynist

    As they say, if your partner cheats, it's not you -- it's them. They have inadequacies, problems

    GBC seems to have spent his entire life trying to paper over his inadequacies. No doubt he imagines he's coming across as a real stud to the males in his life and to those in the jury and wider world

    I'm furious

    11:20am: Mr Fuller: "You killed your wife, Mr Baden-Clay."

    Mr Baden-Clay: "No, I did not."

    The prosecutor put to Mr Baden-Clay that he had attacked his wife and the "only way" she could respond was to "lash out and claw his face".

    "That is not true," Mr Baden-Clay replied.

    Mr Fuller: "Probably as you smothered her and took her life from her."

    Mr Baden-Clay: "That is not true. I never did anything to physically harm my wife in any way, ever."

    talking about Alisons depression wasn't helping HIM... might come out that he is causing depression right around Brisbane, 24/7

    11:25am: Mr Fuller suggested Mr Baden-Clay dragged his wife's body to the boot of her Holden Captiva and then drove to Kholo Creek at Anstead where he dumped her body "unceremoniously" to "hurry back" to his sleeping children in the middle of the night.

    "The suggestion that I would leave my children for any time, in the middle of the night, is absurd, let alone do the dastardly things you're suggesting," Mr Baden-Clay replied

    Gerard appears subdued on the stand as he answers questions from his defence barrister Michael Byrne #badenclay

    #badenclay re journal - most instances Allison's writing, floor plan of Toni's house done by GBC, squiggles by children. @abcnews

    Gerard is being shown a page from Allison's journal. He is being asked what a series of numbers mean. He doesn't know. #badenclay

    Jury is looking at a note from Allison in which she says she doesn't want to be alone - she is afraid of failing in her marriage #badenclay

    Yet another example of GBC revelling in being able to spit not only on his wife this time (and by extension, his children, his marriage, his vows, etc.) but also his mistress

    GBC must have loved being able to kill two birds/women with one stone. But as usual, he was too cowardly to confront either women with answers to their many questions

    He didn't know where she kept it, later told it was kept under her bedside table #badenclay

    Caroline Overington ‏@overingtonc 1m

    And that ends Gerard's evidence #badenclay

    GBC:
    Only cure for depression is to
    shut up about it?
    compartmentalise?
    put up with it?
    take drugs?
    forget about it?

    simples !!

    Defence has previously said they will call evidence about tidal flows at Kholo Creek and about 'serotonin syndrome' #badenclay
