What was allegedly said to the court was correct. To criticise the professional competence of the barrister who said it is misguided, and fails to take account of what the proper role of a prosecuting barrister is: it is to assist the court and not to express the barrister's personal opinions.
It may be that in some quarters the current state of the law is disliked. Instead of shooting the messenger, those who are dissatisfied should turn their attention to bringing about a change in the law to remedy its perceived defects.
