Affordable Justice

Yet again, a mere professional has gone out of his way to muddy the crystal waters of the Government's cleansing agenda. In the teeth of the facts on the ground at Planet Graybeing, a mere judge has declared that legal aid might be necessary "in order to ensure a just and fair hearing". Quite aside from the judge's wilful defiance of the coalition's idea of justice, which has nothing whatever to do with fairness to anyone in the legal-aid income bracket, the unrepresented party in the case is doubly a pariah, being both a sex offender and a foreigner who has the temerity to require an interpreter. Doubtless Graybeing, as the possessor of Britain's finest legal mind after the staff of the Daily Mail, will take all necessary steps towards providing an appropriately constituted lynch mob.

    At least think of the poor judges who, instead of dealing with a barrister who has filtered his clients' matters down to something comprehensible and justiciable, will now have to deal with the riff raff directly. The administration of justice is surely in peril unless you opt for the one-size-fits-all approach of Alice's red queen.

    It never pays to be soft on crime. At one point we started sending them to Australia instead of just stringing them up, and look at what's happening there.
