Page 230 - ... did not exist. That is a proposition which their Lordships do not desire to dispute; but the questions whether a particular intent is made an element of the statutory crime, and, when that is not the case, whether there was an absence of mens rea in the accused, are questions entirely different and depend upon different considerations.
Page 7 - It is material to observe that it is often fallaciously assumed that a statement of opinion cannot involve the statement of a fact.
