I Admit When I'm Wrong
On Monday, I predicted that the panel in the court martial of RN Captain Robert Tarrant would return a "not guilty" verdict on the two remaining counts of maltreatment of subordinates in "a few minutes". I now freely admit that my prediction was in error.
It took an hour to return the acquittal.
And the guy's still a jerk... a legally exonerated jerk, but a jerk nonetheless. The people who pursued the charges sound like wouldn't be the most fun crowd to go on liberty with, either. All in all, a colossal waste of time for the Brit submarine force.
