Michael Guest, David Bain's former lawyer finds it incredible that Justice Binnie has found David Bain innocent on the balance of probabilities but still thinks he should get a payout.
Meanwhile Rodney Hide has written a column in support of David Bain's innocence and his compensation bid. Hide says:
"But still, until a week ago, I would have said to anyone who asked that Bain was guilty. Not now. Not on the balance of probabilities."
It is apparent from the rest of the commentary that Hide has changed his mind because of the government response to Binnie's report.
