David Garrett: Hypocrite

The suppression order on David Garrett has been lifted, and the Herald now has all the squalid details. Apparently, he though it was "a bit of a lark". Then there's this bit:

Garrett asked to keep his identity secret to "maintain his reputation".


Garrett was supported by three character references, none of whom are mentioned in the court record. But one is believed to be Sensible Sentencing Trust founder Garth McVicar.

So, we have an opponent of suppression orders demanding one to "maintain his reputation", and gaining a discharge without conviction with the support of a man who has publicly opposed any hint of mercy or proportion in the justice system. What a pair of hypocrites.
