Remember our "Textusa's Phone Hacking Scandal" (TPHS) posts?
We did four of them, TPHS #1, #2, #3 and #4, and then diverged from the subject because we found ourselves entertained with what we started to uncover about Mrs Fenn and the Three MustBeKidders from the Mockumentary, JW, TS and Derek Flack.
As we had already outlined the remainder of the Phone Hacking Scandal posts we just let ourselves be distracted with the new issues so these have ended up gathering dust in our archive.
But during the publication of these posts it was the time, if you remember, that our friend Advocatus lost the foothold he thought he had in the blog after a very carefully delineated “friendly attack”.
Realising that all his/her efforts were going, suddenly, down the drain s/he showed desperation. S/He lost all his/her flamboyance and coolness and went into incomprehensible and incoherent blabber. After all, all his/her efforts were being unbelievably lost right before his/her eyes.
In the height of his/her despair, you simply can’t imagine what s/he offers to do! Be our editor! To edit for the blog Irish to Scottish to English!
S/He offers him/herself to be part of the Textusa team!! I bet you didn’t think that possible, did you? We certainly didn’t.
S/He first does it through his/her alter ego, Anders7777, at David Icke’s blog which we don't want to provide a link to, or the respective thread, because we don't want to be seen to endorse it and with which we would in no way like to be associated with:

Albeit this explicit "adios" (which unfortunately will never be one, we've fully understood a long time ago...) s/he then reiterates, three days later, in an unpublished comment directly in our blog:
ADVOCATUS has left a new comment on your post "Textusa's Phone Hacking Scandal #3":
ADVOCATUS - it is simmple- cut the retarded s m t j m names etc, name names, if you want a copy-editor who can do irish to Scottish to English, ask me
Posted by ADVOCATUS to Textusa at Feb 7, 2012 5:20:00 AM
A desperate person does desperate things, sometimes unthinkable ones but most of the time they are just utter ridiculous.
Advocatus desperately tried to regain the “contact” that he thought he had earned with the blog with many unpublished comments as, it seems, it took quite a while for reality to sink in.
This post is about desperation. Sheer, pure DESPERATION.
We picked this comment from the character Birch from a thread in the Jill Havern's (JH) Forum:
Mr Tony Benett's trial
Stephen Birch Today at 6:46 pm
To the Forum
For those of you that are not familiar with being involved in High court trials, it will be difficult for you to understand what the individual is going through. It's a case of, if you have not actually been involved in a high court matters, either as the plaintiff or as the defendant, you will not have experienced the tremendous negative energy that surrounds litigation. It is destructive to body mind and soul.
I personally am an experienced litigator, having been involved in 4 high court matters against my partners for 4 years. During those four years, you eat sleep and dream pleadings. You relive each and every moment and action that you took in the past over and over and over, as you prepare for trial. The hours are irregular, with you sometimes having to leave chambers after trial preparation when the sun is coming up. You don't eat properly, and sleep is not a peaceful experience.It's like a living nightmare that won't end.
You always under pressure. You see the judicial system has certain rules, that require you to respond to the other sides pleadings by certain dates in writing. These pleadings and the ongoing responses to the pleadings occur under massive pressure. Each word in the pleadings needs to be checked and analysed to see what implication it has on the matter. In actual fact, the entire trial is run outside the court, with pleadings being finally bound and presented as a bundle to the judge.Then each side argues what's in the bundle, and the judge makes a decision. And you hope that he makes the right decision !!! His only human, god forbid he had a fight with his wife the night before your matter starts. I am not even going to breach the topic of postponements for a number of reasons, normally smack bang in the middle of your trial, when you getting the upper hand on your opponent. An example, the judge is suddenly called to another matter. So you come back 3 months later and pick up the pieces. You have to get your legal team to prepare again each time before you walk into court, more waisted costs. And you hope you get the same judge...........
The costs are enormous, not only are you paying your attorney or advocate on an hourly rate, but you also pay them an attendance fee, for appearing in court. Then there's the cost of printing coping and binding. These can literally run into thousands of pounds. Coping documents at attorney rates is enormous. Don't forget the other sides attorney's are also coping at attorney rates, which you will pay if you lose the case.
Coupled with this, is the fact that everything needs be copied and bound 4 times. One copy for the judge, one copy for the other side, one copy for your attorney, one copy for you, and if there are expert witnesses, then a copy for them. It's expensive , very expensive.
What makes it even more expensive, is your inability to work on anything else except the trial. So your legal practice or property company, and the income that you would normally generate ceases. You now begin to draw on your savings. In South Africa, I tell people, if you do not have R6 million rand spare in your bank account, don't litigate. That's about 500 000 pounds.
You see like Mr Bennett, I walked into the court with high morals and believing I was doing the right thing, but quickly learned that 90% of the time, the side with the most money wins.
Well why is that? Well just when you think you winning the case, the other side either dumps more paper/ pleadings on you, or brings side actions against you.Eventually you cannot cope.Without money and assistance, you collapse under the load.You cannot meet the time restrictions to deliver the pleadings and counter arguments.
I am not familiar with the entire merit of Mr Tony Benetts case, but I can assure you, his at a disadvantage to the Mc Cann's.They will out gun him in both money and evidence. Why, because all they need to prove, is that he bad mouthed them, and that's easy, they discover one phamplet he distributed, and the judge makes a ruling in their favour. Mr Benett on the other hand has a much harder case to prove against them. He one has to prove that they are guilty. Not an easy task, even for a seasoned litigator like myself. Mr Bennett will probably be referring to certain precident cases, to argue for freedom of speech etc etc. But unfortunately it's an uphill battle.
Like I said, I am not in a position to analyse the merits of the case, but my gut feeling tells me it's going to be very very tough for Mr Benett.
I really really hope he wins his matter. The reality is the system wins, not the plaintiff or defendant. The system was designed to look after the judges attorneys barristers, clerk of the courts, and legal secretary's etc etc. We that litigate are outsiders. When you like me become a seasoned litigator, you,ll learn that quickly. You go from standing for ideals and virtues, to becoming bankrupt and hating yourself from getting involved in the mess. It's reality. I have many friends who have lost their wives and family as a result of litigation.
And don't forget, if you lose, you pay all the other sides costs, that my friends, normally runs into millions.
The fact that Mr Benett is an attorney does not mean his at an advantage. In actual fact, although his represented people litigating, he might not be experienced at litigating himself. There's a difference. A person like myself, who is not an attorney, might have significantly more litigation experience than Mr Bennett. Secondly representing yourself, is also not always a good thing. You lack the abilty to be objective in the matter. You always need fresh eyes to look at your case, and look at all the angles. That costs money, serious money.
Why I am telling you this, well the next time you ask me a question and I do not answer it, you,ll understand why. I am not going through what Tony Bennet is going through in a million years. Been there, done that, have the "T" shirt. It cost me 4 years of my life and a lot more.
No I,ll fight this battle strategically, and when the time is right, then I,ll go in for the kill. So please give me the benefit of the doubt, and don't make assumptions at this present moment because I don't come out guns blazing. When the Boers fought the English, they wore camouflage clothing and waited for the English to be in range. They had secretly put markers on the battle field, so the knew at what range the English were from them. Their rifles sights were set according to the distance the English were from them, shown by the markers on the ground. They did not go guns blazing from the top of the hill when they saw the English on the horizon, but waited patiently from the hill tops for the English to come into range. And that's what I am doing.
Tony I sincerely wish you well with your matter. The nightmare does come to an end, and you do grow as a person.
First, as we’ve said before, although there’s a significant difference of opinion about what happened to Maddie between ourselves and Mr Bennett, we’ve publicly given him our full support in his legal fight against the Black Hat Machine.
Second, someone without litigation experience should tell this experienced litigator that 4 litigation cases in 4 years sounds very unlikely and is a pill a little hard to swallow. One just has to look at how long Mr. Bennett has seen himself involved, by the will of the McCanns, in this single affair.
Even if they did happen as he says they did (I would be curious as to whom, where and when they did occur) from his words of caution to Mr Bennett one can only imply that he lost all of them because no words of encouragement can be read all through the letter.
Even his well-wishing in the end is followed by a pessimistic "don’t-worry-you’ll-come-out-a-better-person" pat on the back.
Assuming that he’s lost his 4 litigation battles, thus losing £2,000,000.00, amount calculated from his words, one must find very strange his steadfast willingness to embark on yet another possible litigation battle by meddling with the McCanns and their abduction theory…
The comment above, written in a letter format, although directed to the forum readers is obviously to be read exclusively by Mr Bennett.
In all its friendly tone and language it’s more filled up with spooky figures than all those that JK Rawlings came up in all her Harry Potter novels put together.
Just check the following terrifying “devil & demons” :
“And you hope that he (the Judge) makes the right decision !!! His only human, god forbid he had a fight with his wife the night before your matter starts.”
“In South Africa, I tell people, if you do not have R6 million rand spare in your bank account, don't litigate. That's about 500 000 pounds.”
“You see like Mr Bennett, I walked into the court with high morals and believing I was doing the right thing, but quickly learned that 90% of the time, the side with the most money wins.”
“Like I said, I am not in a position to analyse the merits of the case, but my gut feeling tells me it's going to be very very tough for Mr Benett.“
“When you like me become a seasoned litigator, you,ll learn that quickly. You go from standing for ideals and virtues, to becoming bankrupt and hating yourself from getting involved in the mess”
“I have many friends who have lost their wives and family as a result of litigation.”
“The fact that Mr Benett is an attorney does not mean his at an advantage. In actual fact, although his represented people litigating, he might not be experienced at litigating himself. There's a difference. A person like myself, who is not an attorney, might have significantly more litigation experience than Mr Bennett. Secondly representing yourself, is also not always a good thing. You lack the abilty to be objective in the matter. You always need fresh eyes to look at your case, and look at all the angles. That costs money, serious money.“
Trying to be matey with Mr. Bennett but persuading him not to go to court, by the use of the most basic scare tactics like bankruptcy and even bringing in the wife for emotional blackmail.
Desperation, pure desperation. Can’t you just feel the desperation oozing out of each word?
Albeit with all his flaws, as the human being he is, one thing one has to recognise in Mr Bennett is his resilience. Although it was the McCanns who sought the legal conflict, he has shown to be absolutely resolute in facing the couple and all their supporting "legal machine", one that has terrified so many.
Birch “asking” Mr Bennett to give up is as reasonable as Advocatus “offering” to be the blog’s copy-editor to do Irish to Scottish to English.
But they have reason to be desperate. Really desperate.
This is what Mr. Bennett has said, on the JH forum, about the current status of his case:
“I can't say what is in the judgment, but what I did report from the hearing was the judge's suggestion that this should be the sequence of events:
A. Trial on the issue of whether I breached the undertakings, but with no penalty being decided even if I am found to be in breach, followed by
B. Full libel trial, with a jury, followed by
C. The committal trial reconvening to decide what penalty, if any, I should face.
Did you read the magic word?
That’s why they are desperate. So desperate.
Mr. Bennett, we wish to send you some words that further enhance your fortitude and determination. You seem to be on the high road that you fought so hard to be in.
I would say that we would do like the the Boers who “waited patiently from the hill tops for the English to come into range“, but they did lose two wars, so quite an unfortunate choice as example, so we will indeed wait, not on top of hills, but sitting in our comfortable couches and see what excuses the BHs will come up with to avoid facing the said JURY while sipping our tea.
