With Seventeen Days To Go, the countdown continues for local man, Seaton Carew.
Still waiting for the inevitable, Carew, 41, may have to wait a little less time if his pleas do not fall on waiting deaf ears.
Guilty of a plea change, his plea to wait less could result in a different outcome, but he will have to wait to see whether the outcome will change.
Wait for the contact from the man at the other end who is waiting to hear from the three behind the bench.
The long bench.
The long wait.
Wait to see if the three will make him wait for a little longer, or whether they will seal his fate.
As always, if they makes him wait, all he can do is wait to see if the wait was worth the wait.
Or if the wait merely leads to a longer wait.........
