    Says relevance of abuse- does it mean what you say and do is different if you could just be you?

    [h=3]Hoare 'is a survivor who learned how to deal with Matthews'[/h]Shauna Hoare “is a survivor in the end, who learned how best to deal [with Matthews]”.
    She was able to “get what she wanted in so far as she could”, the court was told.
    However defence lawyer Andrew Langdon added that Hoare was not the victim in this case.

    There's also a joke SH has copied onto her Facebook that unnerves me, where she's commented to NM that she has no idea why she finds it so funny but did(find it funny)

    The joke is :

    Is there a nonsexual way to eat a lollipop?

    SMASH IT WITH A HAMMER AND EAT THE REMAINS

    Her life and her house is filled literally and metaphorically by Nathan Matthews - filled with his junk - filled with his issues

    Certainly is.

    Funny how, prior to this, everyone thought she was capable enough to raise a child and be the registered carer of someone with MS - but all of a sudden we are supposed to believe she is some tragic product of abuse and control and isn't responsible for any of her actions or thoughts and somehow 'the system' is to blame.

    To blame for what, I don't know, as this is the defence who are claiming she is completely innocent of everything!!

    I want to first of all say that I am not condoning domestic abuse whatsoever.

    But I haven't read anything that suggests SH was a victim of this to the point of being too scared of NM to leave the relationship. In 7 years of being together she has told of one incident of him grabbing her neck and one of him pulling her hair (yes, serious stuff). However, the one occasion she told him she wanted to end the relationship, he directed violence at himself.

    She says she thought that he would come looking for her if she left him - she never, ever, stated that he said this.

    The neighbours said they were very quiet, never argued and they hardly ever heard them.

    Her facebook is comprised of HER constantly tagging him in comments, constantly posting things to him, and making comments to him. He doesn't do the same to her.

    In my opinion, the violence and control of this relationship has been exaggerated for SH's benefit.

    But if SH relied on him for everything, as AL has just stated - then this can easily be used to say that SH would definately help NM to murder and cover up the murder.... If her reliance was total, she needed to keep him in her life, at whatever cost.

    Speaking of the kidnap texts:"Yes those text exchanges are shameful. And yes she lied about them when confronted with them." #beckywatts

    Mr Langdon says looking at SH for a sexual motive is "the unattractive sound of the bottom of the barrel being scraped." #beckywatts
