The Secret Barrister
Another lie. On a day when campaigning has supposedly been suspended, the Cabinet, from PM to Home Secretary to ministers, is out in force telling flagrant lies about the criminal justice system to score cheap points out of people’s deaths. What a country we live in.

Many types of sentence have long been available to courts to ensure that dangerous offenders were not automatically released. It is a lie to claim that the courts had no choice but to pass sentences that resulted in automatic release at the halfway point.

I can't say that this is definitely the case with Khan, but if he was anything like many of the offenders who are released on licence that I deal with then it is austerity rather than soft sentencing that will have meant that this man was not properly monitored.

The trial judge gave an indeterminate detention for "public protection" - apparently it was the Court of Appeal's decision that placed the public at risk.

In despair here. I cannot recall a general election in my lifetime where outright blatant lies have been a planned election tactic. So very sad.

Going after the system rather than it’s piss poor underfunding, it’s rampant undermining, and now trying to deflect the blame I know where that Narwhal tusk needs sticking
