Trial: Early Report By Nick Pisa On What Was Expected To Be Heard Today

Posted by Peter Quennell

This SkyNews video was just posted. The TV news report in the UK was broadcast earlier today.

Not got much time but just watching that last Sky video and the way Amanda acts in the last few seconds as she ‘shyly’ acknowledges the camera just shows she is still enjoying herself through all this- she is famous, everyone wants to take her picture and talk to her. She acts more like Victoria Beckham pretending to not like the paps than someone on trial for murder.

I’ve just watched it again Ginny. I didn’t spot that originally. People have always said that the photos taken of Amanda can be made to look any way a photographer wants them to look and that they’re not necessarily a true reflection of how she acts in court.

Now we know why they always manage to get a strange smile from - because she’s playing to the cameras everyday and loving every minute of this attention.

This says a lot about her character. If I were on trial for murder, I would not be giving the press a cheeky smile every time I walked in the courtroom.

She’s a very, very odd girl.

I completely agree- a still shot could be a moment of gas or something, not necessarily a smile. This footage however is like she’s saying ‘oh you guys, still trying to get more images of lil ol’ me?! lucky I washed my hair this week hey?!!’

This video is about Amanda’s mother retelling exactly what was said?

I’ve mentioned this before under another caption, in that the first thing that struck me was that Amanda’s mother told the court that she received the first phone call at 4am US time, but “did not know what time it was in Italy”.

I would think that the first thing one would ask is “what time is there?” ie Italy.

She has obviously been coached to avoid saying anything that could harm the defense, and it should be pointed out that she is entirely non-credible as a witness; a liar.
