Subject: RE: BS: Schapelle Corby
I'm inclined to think Corby's chances of getting off aren't too bad.

The Indonesians want to nail an Aussie, for lots of reasons.

The Australian Federal Police don't mind seeing an Aussie get nailed in Indonesia, because it does discourage people from smuggling dope from there.

The Bali Nine - on what I've seen so far, and let's bear in mind the presumption of innocence - will be a lay down misere for the prosecution.

Why should they bother convicting Corby, where there are a lot of doubts, when they have a whole bunch of Aussies they can roast without the mudfight that will ensue if Corby is convicted?

The Bali Nine might save Corby.
