I wuz provoked, yeronner

So, anyone buying the concept that Clayton Weatherston lost control only due to extreme provocation, leading him to kill and extensively mutilate his ex-girlfriend with the, er, large knife that he just happened to have brought with him? Me, not so much...

I somehow don't think he will have endeared himself to the jury PM - but I reckon he'll have PLENTY of time to reflect on it once he has been tried and sentenced.

at least his QC Judith Ablett-Twinky Winky will have enough money to get a decnet holiday off him...or us, as the case may be.

Tumeke have a very good post on this.
The knife was rubbish by the way. It broke and he had to continue the "manslaughter" with a pair of scissors.

A poster boy for academia, he isn't. Mind you, I bet he's not the only economist who couldn't be trusted to pick a good knife for murdering someone with.
