Does one know then, if it is up to the court to interpret whether the offence against me is serious, whether it might be a different level of seriousness as for Senator Ruane? Is there a definition of serious or is it that each case is taken on its merits and that the people who happen to receive the information on a Monday determine what serious is on a Monday while different sets of people, or judges, might interpret it differently in a different case on a Thursday?
