Pardon me my absence - out dispensing justice!


I apologise if blogging is light but I have been called to help administer justice and so will be lining up with 11 other good men and true (maybe) for the next few days. Of course if the slimy defence lawyer of some shell-suited scrote takes exception to an Englishman booted and suited on the Jury then I will be home for luncheon...


A friend was a defence barrister (strictly, advocate, for it was in Scotland) for several years. In all that time he defended only one person whom he genuinely believed might not have dunnit. (Honest case of mistaken identity, he thought.) He gave up the trade in disgust.
