Don't worry. We're old friends from way back.
We'll get him to the Old Bailey, safe and sound.
- Thank you. - Bye.
顺便说一下 我爱你的酒馆 它太可爱了
Love your pub, by the way. It's adorable.
-他为什么有坐垫 -请坐 先生
- Why does he have cushions? - Just take your place, sir.
He has cushions and we don't.
We'll be fine. It's all going to be fine.
I was talking to my brief,
he says that this could be over in three days. Five days, tops.
In fact, he thinks there's a chance that we could sue
for defamation of character.
Red tops, all of them. We could actually end up quids in.
Apparently there's a witness
who claimed that Norman Scott said he was a ballet dancer.
He only stopped dancing when a piano fell on his toe.
It's like he's a sugar plum fairy.
He says he belongs to the aristocracy!
- Holmes. - The man is a born liar.
My client asks that you do not address him
in any way, shape or form, ever.
M'lud, I'd like to ask the court on the half of my client,
Mr George Deakin, to lift all reporting restrictions.
-从没提过 -法官大人 我必须反对
- There's no mention. - M'lud, I must object.
Mr Deakin wants it known that he welcomes the fullest scrutiny.
I must point out we asked for a Section 7.
This trial will contain false allegations
of an intimate and sexual nature.
Nonetheless, my hands are tied.
If these proceedings are reported in the press and on television,
it will humiliate my client and damage his reputation for life!
You know how the law stands, Mr Carman.
If one party applies to have restrictions lifted,
then they must be adopted by all.
-荒唐 -做得不错 迪肯先生
- Outrageous. - Well played, Mr Deakin.
Oh, my God. They've lifted restrictions!
Everything they're saying in the court, it's all here!
Oh, my God!
'Good evening. There could be serious disruption
'in the power stations next month.
'The engineers there are to hold a strike ballot.'
'Fascinating scenes today here at the Old Bailey,
'on the first day in which Jeremy Thorpe has been put on trial
'for conspiracy to murder.'
'The prosecution outlined
how Thorpe and Mr Scott first met in 1961
'and began a homosexual relationship.'
That's me! On the telly!
- Mr Scott! - 'Thorpe and Scott first met
'on the property of a Mr Norman van de Vater,
'where Thorpe gave Scott his telephone number,
'with a general invitation to visit him in London.
'Some 12 months later, Scott went to London...'
Mrs F, we've got customers.
I'm not missing this!
'Mr Thorpe took Mr Scott and his Jack Russell terrier,
'called Mrs Tish, to the house of Thorpe's mother,
'Mrs Ursula Thorpe, at Oxted, Surrey.'
'The court heard that "Bunnies"
'was a reference to their first night together,
'when Thorpe said that Scott looked like a frightened rabbit.
'This night at Thorpe's mother's
was the start of a homosexual affair.'
This is filthy.
'..Proved this was a physical relationship.'
I can't believe they can say this on the BBC.
'It is alleged that Thorpe gave Scott money
'with which he rented a room at Draycott Place in Chelsea,
'where Thorpe was a frequent visitor.
'The court heard that Scott ordered a pair of silk pyjamas
'from Gieves of Bond Street, charging them to Thorpe's account.'
M'lud. The prosecution calls Mr Peter Bessell.
Take the Bible in your right hand. Repeat after me.
'Astonishing scenes in court today as former MP Peter Bessell
'gave a devastating testimony.
'He said he'd witnessed Mr Thorpe demanding Norman Scott's death
'on multiple occasions,
'by shooting Mr Scott or breaking his neck
'or burying his body in cement.'
Peter Bessell, a good friend of yours.
How do you want me to handle it?
He's a Judas.
Might I ask what prompted you to testify here today?
- A sense of justice, perhaps? - That was a factor, yes.
Then, if your sense of justice is so paramount, can I ask,
when the leader of the Liberal Party told you, as you claim,
that he wanted a man murdered,
who did you tell?
- Did you tell anyone in the party? - No.
- Did you tell the police? - No.
- Did you tell Mrs Thorpe? - No.
So you told no-one
that the leader of the Liberals must be insane?
Er, no, no, I did not.
- Then you lied. - I didn't exactly lie.
Yes or no - did you lie about what you knew, to everyone?
-我忽略了 是的 -那你就是撒谎了
- Well, by omission, yes. - Then you're a liar.
I...suppose I have lied to many people
on many occasions.
Gosh, I have something of a credibility problem, yes.
Then why should the jury believe a word you say?
Because I'm not lying now.
Except, having been granted immunity,
you could say whatever you like.
Did you serve in the war?
What? Um, no, I did not,
我拒服兵役[基于道德或宗教信仰原因不服兵役]I was a conscientious objector.
So you only objected to acts of violence in wartime,
-才反对暴♥力♥行为 -这不公平 我也有贡献
- when it saved your neck? - That's not fair, I did my bit.
In what way?
I gave lectures
to the Armed Forces in classical music.
Well, no wonder we won, Mr Bessell!
Are you a drug addict?
- What? - Are you a drug addict?
-我没有 -法官大人 我得请问...
- No, I'm not. - M'lud, I must ask...
No. I imagine this might be important.
M'lud, this constitutes an attack on the witness' character.
Let's discover that for ourselves.
Mr Carman, you may continue.
What sort of drugs did you mean? Do you mean prescription drugs?
I mean a drug called Mandrax.
是的 抱歉 那是处方安♥眠♥药♥
