    An act does not make a person guilty, unless the mind is guilty. This allows, thankfully, for intelligent discretion in sentencing.
    Exactly. Actus Reus / Mens Rhea.
    I was making a point to someone who made a claim about the use of that word. I can't remember the claim and I can't be bothered to go over this thread.

    No he didn't make a mistake.
    How do you know? At least based on what I've read, I haven't seen anything that would indicate otherwise. Surely people should be given the benefit of the doubt before being kicked from pillar to post by the shrieking SJW crowd?

    And this isn't about mindlessly defending Labour people on my part; I'm happy to criticise Labour people when they do wrong, I do it regularly (particularly for the execrable Corbyn). But in this case I just don't think we should be so quick to condemn a man. It can seem like being a bit too partisan, a bit too quick to seek partisan advantage
