For someone who writes for the Grauniad, Henry Porter is held quite high in my esteem. An example of his views can be found here.
Writing on the aspects of another 'Straw F'Up' decision in respect of our judicial system, Henry Porter says:
"Desmond Hudson, the chief executive of the Law Society, says that, little by little, such measures as virtual courts "pile up to create an imbalance between the power of the state and the rights of the individual, which is beginning to undermine the rule of law" and "It is so easy to be lulled by the Ministry of Justice's language about "secure video links" and "freeing up police time" and "making it easier for victims to see justice being done", but, as so often under the Labour government, the hard truth is that justice will be the victim."
When will F'tards like Straw stop fixing what ain't broke? Probably when pigs fly - Oops, sorry, forgot they do already when they go on fact-finding parliamentary trips!
