Criminal hack at Pump Court Chambers. Blogs. "Looks like a lizard." "Greasy comb-over." "Chummy with the upper echelons of power," apparently.

That's one argument. The other is that the system permitted legal representation & cross-examination in an appropriate case, this was such a case, & he was unfairly denied it.

The HL debate on Lord Lester is a must read for law students (& lawyers & others) interested in: (a) natural justice; (b) adversarial / inquisitorial systems (c) burden of proof. Contribs from Hope, Woolf, Mackay, Butler-Sloss, Pannick etc.

Nonsense. Ball by ball commentary is a jewel in the BBC's crown. I'm sorry you don't enjoy it. (Sid Waddell, btw, was another one & is greatly missed.)

Rather a shame, , that with such an exciting Test Match in Sri Lanka the only ball by ball commentary is on a T20 thrash between Australia & S. Africa.

Maybe "explained" is putting it a bit high. I'm not even sure that is Irish law, so it was perhaps more in the nature of a tentative suggestion.

Didn't Lord Lester himself vote for this procedure? But whether he did or he didn't it's not fair & the involvement of retired Law Lords doesn't make it fair.

Thread>> I missed last night but for the hundreds of people tweeting/RTing - including from 1 MP - messages denying I had police with me at party conference/saying it’s a smear this is what the police said. Read it closely. The clue is in the word “armed”.
