I have been sent the following video clip: advice on how to be a jury member by well known perjurer and philanthropist Lord Archer. Watch as he almost lurches into Swiss Tony.

The clips merely confirm my initial reaction to The Verdict and mean that the rather interesting C4 programme the other week (where the jury were ordinary folk and exhibited the prejudices many are aware of and decided the case based on personal experience not the evidence presented) has been somewhat overshadowed.
