:: : Lets not labour the point, its resolved and my comments on the discussion page are a model of politeness.
I was trying to produce something succinct that didn't labour the point, but perhaps I went too far in that direction.
That means that the last valid block ( again that's disputable, but I won't labour the point here ) was " five years " ago.
Members of the jury, the short answer to that view of the matter is this, which I think I put to one witness : what is there in the book to suggest that if the sexual intercourse between lady Chatterley and Mellors had not eventually turned out to be successful she would not have gone on and on and on elsewhere until she did find it ? " In a point not raised in cross-examination Griffith-Jones asked the jury to consider the passage of the novel on p . 258 which suggested heterosexual buggery, then a criminal act in England and Wales, which though Griffith-Jones didn't labour the point had it been examined more closely might have been damning to the defence case that the book was not obscene.
