Musings and Snippets from a recently retired JP. I served for 31 years, mostly in west London. I was Chairman of my Bench for some years, and a member of the National Bench Chairmen's Forum All cases are based on real ones, but anonymised and composited. All opinions are those of one or more individuals. JPs swear to enforce the law of the land, whether or not they approve of it. Nothing on here constitutes legal advice.

The President of the Oxford Union is the subject of serious allegations that remain just that - allegations. This report gives more detail, but at the risk of stating the bleeding obvious, has it not occurred to any of the Union's members officers or prospective speakers that he remains innocent until proven guilty? This has the smell of mob justice about it, and Oxford ought to be able to do better than that.

Hmmm, I wonder whether you consider bliar guilty of various crimes related to the illegal invasion of Iraq...as he was so in favour - still is - of the eu, perhaps he wouldn't mind being considered guilty until proven innocent?ReplyDelete
Also, because of the incompetence of the CPS, many people have gone free when they are guilty, so why is the Government not PROPERLY addressing this, and perhaps even more so, where are ALL the High Court and Supreme Court judges who SHOULD have spoken out against the CPS - and offered solutions to this crisis of justice - and DEMANDED that camoron take the necessary corrective measures? That is just another reason why I hold those judges deservedly in contempt. Don't get me started on why they have done NOTHING effectively about the Brits deliberately being lied to and denied our democratic right to vote on the eu. Well?
You're clearly not. Well that is.Delete

Ben Sullivan's case is drawing attention. The 33% rate for false rape allegations and new "guidelines" that ensure that the defendant (always named) is leaned on by plod will see more miscarriages of justice.ReplyDelete
Shame on the speakers who cancelled. Shame on the women who urged them to.ReplyDelete
