A short one today.
Thank you @J_amesP for bringing this little pearl to my notice.
Boris is a politician, pure and simple. He has already politicised the agenda, and quite possibly the actuality, of policing in London in his guise of ‘PCC’ for London.
Now he wants to take control of the CPS and Courts system within London.
Lord Boris of Londinium, I can hardly begin to list the different ways in which that would simply be WRONG, not just a bad idea, just WRONG.
The last time I looked at a map of of the world, London was in the United Kingdom and not North Korea. What kind of legal system would this so-called civilised country have if one person (and a few minions) had control of the entire judicial system within the M25 boundary?
Do I detect the sound of an Apocalyptic Horseman whinnying in the background?
I would like to think that Boris can’t be serious, but I fear that he may be.
