Yesterday, I wrote the second part to my last piece about the debasement of the criminal justice system.
It seems to me that the so-called Ministry of “Justice” is failing in its duty. This faddish creation of the Blair government, which fudged its slashing of our constitution, is long past it’s sell-by-date.
We would do well to go back to the old system with that ancient and hallowed title Lord Chancellor (Not sharing the title with Justice Secretary as a fop to silly, old conservatives) at the top of our judicial system. It worked well, like the House of Lords, not because it made sense or was logical but it worked nonetheless. It’s time to recognise that we do not know better than our forefathers.
