Is it really credible that this individual - who, until a very short time ago, was active in the house of commons (no sign of mental health then) and was sharp enough to fiddle the taxpayer out of a huge sum of money - is not fit to stand trial and to accept her sentence in the way that any ordinary criminal would have to do.
A bent politician and a handful of trick-cyclists have shown just how easy it is to pull the wool over the eyes of a judge.
The moral is clear. Next time you are picked up by the old bill, don't ask for a lawyer - get a good (or gullible) doctor. Guaranteed to get you off.
