    Byrne says there was "a really positive balance" of about half a million dollars. #badenclayut half a million dollars. #badenclay

    Kate Kyriacou @KateKyriacou · 55s
    Byrne says the friends testified that Gerard could have let those businesses go broke and walk away. #badenclay

    Kate Kyriacou @KateKyriacou · 53s
    Byrne says there was no personal risk to Gerard. #badenclay

    Kate Kyriacou @KateKyriacou · 28s
    Byrne says this was the opinion of Gerard's close friend Rob Cheesman. #badenclay

    Yes BUT his friends stood to be the losers there and given his "reputation" he would not want that to happen -especially with friends who could give him lots of money

    That Gerard #badenclay was motivated by financial stress to murder his wife is "just a furphy", defence says.

    Certainly not the kind of pressure that would lead him to kill his wife #badenclay

    Byrne says Gerard's other friend Stuart Christ also went through financial records. #badenclay

    Love how he had to use "friends" to back him up - was it because NO EXPERT would?

    If he was doing so well, why were they months and months behind on all their payments, and begging for money from their local member? Why did they have to get an extension on their insurance payment? What a load of rubbish!

    BBM.

    Re the emphasis on the media - do you think they will use media misrepresentation as grounds for appeal if he is found guilty, they seem to be insinuating that the media have been inferring he is guilty...

    Defence says financial stress as murder motive is "just a furphy." @9NewsBrisbane #badenclay

    Sarah Elks ‏@sarahelks 1m
    Barrister Michael Byrne, for Gerard #badenclay , apologises to jury for acting like a 'broken record' - they need to look at the evidence

    Leonie Mellor ‏@leoniemellor 1m
    Byrne: on the evidence you'd be satisfied there was not this financial pressure, let alone to kill. "It's a furphy." @abcnews #badenclay

    If GBC wasn't under financial pressure why "desperate' phone call to Bruce Flegg ?

    It's been bugging me that he has carried on about the girls not hearing anything so much. They were sound asleep - if children awoke to every sound they hear from their bedtime onward, we'd all be stark raving mad. The majority of children can and do sleep through the noises of their household and neighbourhoods every single night. I don't know of any homes where the rest of the house is silenced after the kids are put to bed - I'd say most children are able to sleep through the noise of the older family members talking (and arguing sometimes), watching tv, playing music, washing up and doing other chores, heck ... even partying with friends.
    Don't start me on how long it takes teens when you actually want them to get up and about!

    Why would he need to walk away if he wasn't under finanacial pressure? You don't walk away from a profitable business.

    if he could have walked away, why didn't he?? he couldn't.. his identity was tied up in that Yellow Jacket.. his entire psyche was seen thru the prism of Mr Big Time RealEstate guru.. it was because he couldn't walk away from it, that he murdered his wife..
