A couple of comments, late at night.
1. The BBC's website and news bulletins were the only news media outlets not to mention that those found guilty were Roma.
2. Amongst the many costs of the trial, which lasted two and a half months, was that of three interpreters who worked full time during the case, at a cost of over £30,000.
Today the Office of Budget responsibility announced that we need immigrants as they provide a net financial gain to the country - I wonder if they took this sort of thing into account, including police costs, imprisonment costs as well as the trial costs?
