[2007] EWCA Crim 798

It was not known whether a defendant's social phobia had been the or the only reason that he had remained silent at trial and beyond expressing an opinion it was not for a psychiatrist to say what the reason had been. The judge had not been wrong in principle in concluding that the defendant was a dangerous offender after a psychiatrist had found that when intoxicated he presented a high risk of committing reckless acts which might endanger others.
