Amanda Knox's mum

Louisa Compton | 09:48 UK time, Tuesday, 22 December 2009

In her first British interview since her daughter was convicted of the murder of the British student Meredith Kercher, we'll talk to the mother of Amanda Knox. She's still in Italy preparing her daughter's appeal.

Also today, the Church of England vicar who told Breakfast this morning it is morally permissable to shoplift - or to take as little as you need, for as long as you need it - if you are desparate. Do you agree?

    I don't think the anguished mum did her cause any favours when she dismissed the case against her daughter, the trial and the verdict of the Italian court as 'garbage'. My advice to her; get a dictionary and look up the meaning of the word circumspect!

    Yet again there is one topic post and two subjects - Louisa is it beyond the bounds of your capabilities to do 2 posts? All you have to do is think up a title for the single line about the vicar, like "Is it OK for those in need to steal?" and post it.

    It's not like you are inundated with responses is it? Perhaps you might get one or two if you could be a tad more bothered...

    Yet again the programme give the family of a convicted person a national platform to proclaim their innocence and is treated to the softly softly interview technique by VD.
    The basis of her claim seemed to be i think my daughter is a nice person so she can't be a killer.
    She repeated times many that there was no evidence against her daughter and implied that the jury only found her guilty because of press bias.
    I wasn't in the court of course and what she says may be true but im not arrogant enough to believe that every judicial system is useless except our own ( or the American in this case ).
    If on appeal she is found innocent then so be it but until then stop giving criminals ( or their family members on their behalf in this case ) free access to the Beeb to proclaim their innocence for goodness sake.

    I thought she was rude, dismissive and disrespectful towards Meridith Kerchers' family. She should have been pulled up after she made disparaging comments about Meridiths parents not attending court.

    That vicar; surely inciting or encouraging people to break the law is in itself an offence?
