In The Dock: Bob Dylan - the verdict

In favour of Swiss Toni's case for the prosecution: 9 (Damo, Del, J, Lord Bargain, Mark, Mike, Suburban Hen, Martin, Sarah)

In favour of James' case for the defence: 8 (Ian, D Chedwick Bryant, Dead Kenny, Samantha, Wan, Caskared, JonnyB, Ben)

Abstentions: 1 (Nick The Snick)

After weeks of the defence triumphing comfortably, WE HAVE A GUILTY VERDICT! Albeit one achieved at least in part thanks to a coincidental anti-Dylan post on Troubled Diva and some sly comments-box-pimping from ST which resulted in a late surge of votes for the prosecution... That said, I must confess to being tempted to change my verdict the other way.

So, Mr Zimmerman will be doing porridge, presumably forced to sit through DVD after DVD of his recent live performances with his eyes held open 'Clockwork Orange' style.

Thanks to Swiss Toni and James for their contributions.

Coming soon (hopefully): Phill and Damo do battle over music biographies.

hurray! finally! a victory for the prosecution.... even if it might have taken a tiny bit of chivvying here and there.

Fair dos though, James - I thought you presented an excellent case. You've actually inspired me to dig out 'blood on the tracks' again.

oh, and to be fair to myself too, I also pimped for people to vote generally - I got at least one for the prosecution (curse you Samantha!)

hey, it doesn't matter how you get to the verdict, it's the verdict only that counts.

Do we kill him now?

Lord B: Nice image - the In The Dock jurors as lynch mob hungry for blood...

It was a close call. Once again, a very enjoyable In The Dock, despite the verdict :)
