well as his defence council he is clearly not guilty.
There is always something you can argue. Maybe the other side pressurised him into it and therefore he did not sign of his own free will. Or maybe the other side deliberately hid parts of the contract from him (as in the PPI cases.) The issue with the question is that my job as defence council is to make the situation as good for my client as possible. Even if they confess they have done what they are accused of doing.
Under normal circumstances, some woul say that Elizabeth II would be served well by one as you (not a personal slant)... BUT........ Elizabeth is above legislation and all the courts reside under her authority. She is not ever going to convict herself now, is she...
I hear what you are saying about 'Legislation' and that's why the Queen cannot be under legislation, but it must be noted that even the Queen is under the "LAW". The only thing/person that is above the law is:
“Whoever may be guilty of abuse of power, be it Government, State, Employer, Trade Union or whoever, the law must provide a speedy remedy. Otherwise the victims will find their own remedy.” (Lord Denning), 23 January 1899 – 5 March 1999.
