This is very worrying - govt are proposing to abolish trial by jury, under the pretext of a backlog caused by COVID, but actually caused by a decade of austerity:

Irrespective of what the backlog was caused by, trial by jury has underpinned our justice system for centuries. It's a hallmark of a free society, it's abolition is a step toward authoritarianism.

I believe introduced by Henry II. He remade and improved the whole English legal system.

10,000th post. Congrats! 🙂

Feel a bit undeserving tbh, but glad that this milestone post was used to slag off a useless fucking Tory.

Nadim Zahawi on Radio 4 this morning "defending" Robert Jenrick tried to claim that Richard Desmond didn't get special access to ministerial influence in return for bags of cash for the Tory Party. When he was asked how ordinary members of the public could gain access to MPs and ministers to ensure favourable consideration for their planning or business interests, Zahawi suggested that members of the public could simply go to Tory fundraising dinners and then they too could talk to MPs. Because that's how democracy works. Corrupt to the core.

Its getting ever smellier, are we supposed to think it was an entire coincidence that he happened to be seated next to Jenrick, Desmond also has close friends higher up the food chain although that's rather being ignored.



In a way, the most depressing thing is how cheap the whole thing was, basically to save their party donor £45m CIL which would have gone to one of the most deprived borough's in London the Tories only took £12k.

You don't send a text after meeting someone for the first time which says “We don’t want to give the Marxists loads of doe (sic) for nothing!” if you haven't been encouraged! Actually reading that back, perhaps LL is actually Richard Desmond?

See Maxine Peake is busy today, blaming anyone who didn't vote Labour for the Tories winning and reinforcing the belief that many hard core Corbynistas are a bit anti-Semiticy  Roll Eyes

This might be why No 10 hasn't thrown Jenrick to the wolves, despite the obvious corruption:

It always keeps coming back to Russia, doesn't it? Remember the report into Russian interference in UK politics and the influence of organised crime? Due to be released in October but Johnson kyboshed it until after the election? 6 months on and still not released. Corrupt to the core.

It seems that as soon as anyone disagrees with something Israel does then thats automatically classed as anti semetic, and it really isn't.
