Some Random Thoughts and other miscellany:
For someone out £30,000, Phil Mitchell seems rather sanguine. Hasn't ANYONE noticed that Melanie Owens has skipped out on her bail? Maybe it's different here in the U.S., but when someone fails to show up for a hearing, then the bail is forfeit. Since Phil kindly put up the money, doesn't that mean he has now lost the cash? The Phil Mitchell of old would have had every dodgy character in the UK beating the bushes for her! What gives?
