DON’T criticise the JUDICERY –Judges will lock you up?

Unbelievably perhaps, the current President of the Supreme Court, indeed one Lord Neuberger, had the temerity to use the ‘media’ to criticise the ‘media’ for its coverage (though probably unfair and undoubtedly vitriolic) of the UK’s Courts’ interference in the Government’s triggering of Article 50, that was needed to ensure that Britain left the European […]

After BREXIT bring back hanging – enact ‘another’ will of the British people?

Ex-International Wales Footballer ‘Ched Evans’ is found ‘NOT GUILTY’ of Rape– is the case an example of rape ‘miscarriage of justice’?

  Well, many of us were not surprised, even if still shocked, last month by the latest verdict concerning Ched Evans’ disgusting sexual exploitation of a vulnerable woman [reportedly blind drunk (possibly drink spiked), who had no recollection of her mistreatment] at the invitation of one of his footballer mates, weren’t we?

Killers ‘Nathan Matthews’ and ‘Shauna Hoare’ have had a second appeal rubbished – will that end their permitted abuse of the, lax, indulgent, and ineffective criminal justice system?

  Blue ribbons worn in Becky’s memory Some three months ago the convicted evil pair of Nathan Matthews and Shauna Hoare, who had violently killed young Becky Watts, had their applications to go to the Court of Appeal refused by an appeal judge, as there was no prospect of an appeal succeeding – and so it […]

Oscar Pistorius in Court AGAIN to face South African Justice – WHAT Justice though?

Reeva Steenkamp murdered by Oscar Pistorius Its déjà vu time again isn’t it with Oscar Pistorius back in court facing once again sentencing for his crimes?

UK’s policing is institutionally flawed and in the dock – going down & time for fundamental change?

         Most of Britain’s population believe in the Police Force and, believe that the bobbies on the beat, believe that the constables in the streets, believe that traffic cops on the motorways, believe that the officers in the panda cars, believe that police station operatives, believe that the detectives, believe that the scene of crime […]

The British Justice System and Ched Evans – how does it work?

Ex-Sheffield United and Wales footballer Ched Evans has had his 2012 conviction for rape overturned by the Court of Appeal in a handed-down judgement a few days ago, so currently he has not been found guilty of that offence and his sentence no longer stands. However, he has not actually been acquitted either, and still […]
