From my article in The Sunday Times today:

“Yorgen Fenech will walk, if out of nine jurors hearing his case enough of them allow themselves to be conditioned by inherent prejudices of a regular Labour Party voter. That’s at least half of them. A few of the other half might be politically inclined to wish it was true that the perpetrator of this crime was more obviously political. A few others, believing Fenech to be guilty might decide to acquit him because they also believe he wasn’t alone. It would be acquittal as protest: sticking it to the man, but not the man brought in front of them. None of these would be reasonable doubts but will the jurors know it? Since hours after the murder, Fenech’s friends have been providing alternative whodunnits, sowing doubts the prosecution of his case will consider unreasonable.”
