    Extremely well articulated Fuskier. Exactly how I feel.

    I am very angry. If Allison was managing half of what we've heard she was coping brilliantly! IMO

    Gerard's weak and cowardly gutless defence will be long forgotten.. What will remain is what the people who loved Alison know. If Gerard ever comes to mind, it will be with a grim smile and a nod. People will make bad jokes about the name of Baden-Clay. Olivia's bladder will be ruined, Nige's elderly plodding to the prison to see Gerred will be accompanied by all the scorn and contempt your average Australian can surprisingly muster, Gerards associates in prison will scam him on a daily basis , they know a dumb cluck when they see one.

    It's going to be a life of continually looking over the shoulder for Ger. A life on constant watch, where he has nothing to sell and no one to sell it to. Whatever charm he thought he had won't get him 1/2 a TimTam where he is going.

    Today was almost unbearable, but it told everyone more about Gerard than it did about Alison. There wont be a day like this again. Gerards time of being heard is well and truly over.

    think on this, peoples.

    :floorlaugh: That was my take as well. DT seemed to be citing what was NOT there or NOT seen and NOT done.

    I really hope you're right Trooper. I can't sleep I'm so cross about today.

    this part of the trial was always going to be the worst, Brizzo.. a tiny bit more later on this morning and then its the last words of shite about Alison that anyone will speak. Actually it was shorter than I expected.. for that small mercy, I am grateful. Not much more to go, and then Gerard and the BC's are compelled to hear just what Gerard is, and what Gerard does, and more when the verdict, and the sentencing comes down..

    and that is what will be remembered... that is what counts..

    Many thanks to all our re tweeters today and to anemone for courtroom observations. Also than you to Figtree for great summaries. I have just caught up and it has been a very disturbing read - still reeks of grasping at straws by defence. Just horrible to think of how Allison's family must feel hearing all this and knowing that is so remote from the truth about Allison and who she was. Just also shows me that the instructors to Byrne have no regard and never had any regard or appreciation of Allison as a person. GBCs hoped for freedom is of far greater importance to the BCs than any defamation and lies about Allison, which her three daughters will likely read one day. Just disgraceful and will long be remembered too. MOO

    I so admire you court attendees.. and , green blinding envy as well. ... it will be a good day, if that's the correct word for it, Jayne.. one of the best of the trial, I believe, in the context of comparison with today..

    You've hit the nail on the head as to my major issues with the suicide theory. Sure, I get that someone can commit suicide with no prior warnings in their mental state. But the circumstances on that night just don't fit, imo. Supposing Allison suddenly committed herself to a lethal suicide plan while watching the Footy Show, then she had to either overdose at home and walk all that way, or walk all that way and follow through on her suicidal plan. The first doesn't sit with me because I don't think she would have made it that far, and surely would have been noticed if overdosing and staggering around on something. The second doesn't sit either, because one doesn't need to walk 14kms to kill yourself. It would happen much closer to home. Allison had no history of self-harm or suicide that we know of. I can't see her getting that far without changing her mind. I know there are exceptions but they are extremely far out in the realms of possibility to me.

    Great post.
    I saw many things I wanted to comment on tonight too about what you have mentioned about today's Closing Argument.
    I have been sitting reading some of today's msm reports rolling my eyes and shaking my head - so much so I think I might fall of my chair or pass out.
    I wasn't impressed with the Defence's approach at all.

    Brizzymum, Trooper, Makara, Fuskier....all of you who are here supporting Allison.....WS.....don't really know what I am saying. I am awake for the third time tonight and every time I wake up I start getting angry at what was being said and implied today. So after awhile laying in the dark fuming ....I come back on here...and every single time somehow the right words and sentiments are there. THANK YOU...

    My thoughts are very much with Allison's parents, her girls, family and friends. If I can feel angry at what is happening and has happened, I cannot even begin to imagine their anguish.

    I agree Total, what was said about Allison yesterday in court is despicable and must have been absolutely heartbreaking for the Dickies to hear their daughter being disparaged in such a senseless way. Byrne seems to be trying to blame everyone else just like GBC does.

    Can i ask people who've been to court - are sangas a deadly weapon? I seem to remember food not being allowed at Ipswich court and didn't know if it was the same. Not that I want to eat them IN court but I want a packed lunch for my venture into the big smoke.

    I'm awake trying to remember how to use public transport and where to catch buses and realised that I could start walking now and be there in a few hours. Then that put it more into perspective: she "walked" the distance from their house to the city. I just can't see that as something someone unwell and stumbling could do.

    Mr. Fuller/Mr. Boyle---remember Allison! Remember her in every line you speak while doing your summation. Let her spirit come through to clear her name and in turn, illuminate her real murderer. May Justice prevail.
