The endemic existence of British ‘soft justice’ – an epidemic impossible to control?

The ongoing problems of the Criminal Justice System (CJS) in the UK have been highlighted in a number of previous posts on this blog, and indeed it will have been obvious to all and sundry in Britain that the whole system broke down a long long time ago, don’t you think? Now there are multiple […]

Ex-International Wales Footballer ‘Ched Evans’ is found ‘NOT GUILTY’ of Rape– is the case an example of rape ‘miscarriage of justice’?

  Well, many of us were not surprised, even if still shocked, last month by the latest verdict concerning Ched Evans’ disgusting sexual exploitation of a vulnerable woman [reportedly blind drunk (possibly drink spiked), who had no recollection of her mistreatment] at the invitation of one of his footballer mates, weren’t we? The situation behind […]

The British Justice System and Ched Evans – how does it work?

Ex-Sheffield United and Wales footballer Ched Evans has had his 2012 conviction for rape overturned by the Court of Appeal in a handed-down judgement a few days ago, so currently he has not been found guilty of that offence and his sentence no longer stands. However, he has not actually been acquitted either, and still […]

American Amanda Knox NOT guilty of Murder – Italian Justice in turmoil?

THE REAL VICTIM   Well, well, well, in one of the most bizarre twists one could imagine in any criminal trial, Amanda Knox has now been acquitted of involvement in the murder in Italy eight years ago of her flatmate Meredith Kercher (a twenty-one year old Londoner)  – this judgment squashing the conviction, came in […]

RAPISTS galore – the British Justice system stinks?

In the UK it is a fact that MOST rapists get away with it. You see rape is rarely witnessed (and the men ALWAYS  say it was consentual)  so we get extremely low conviction rates and an even lower reporting rate (because women are regularly disbelieved or put through hell when exposing it). Even when […]

Meredith Kercher murder trial after 7 long years– Italian justice?

THE REAL VICTIM   Nobody knows the name of Meredith Kercher do they? She was a twenty-one year old Londoner shockingly  murdered in Italy seven years ago. Mention though the name of another similar aged young woman at the time Amanda Knox, an American, and people will recall it well. She is one of those […]

Rapists galore – why the hell do we let them get away with it?

Rape of women and sexual assault is the one crime that is totally out of control, in the UK certainly and possibly in many other countries as well (undoubtedly America). Practically all rapist get away with it – the rape might not get reported, the police might not bother to deal with it, the CPS […]

Amanda Knox convicted murderer – Innocent Victim or Guilty Manipulator?

THE REAL VICTIM The name Amanda Knox is widely known in America, is familiar in England, and rubbished in Italy. She, along with two men, was convicted of a 2007 murder in Italy. The name Meredith Kercher however is hardly recognised anywhere. This was the young 21 year old exchange student from London who was […]

The United Nations – a forum full of disingenuous bums?

The founders of the United Nations (UN) will be turning in their graves. Their high minded aspirations for the organisation are in the gutter. A UN so called ‘peace conference’ has now started in Switzerland to ‘pretend’ to deal with the horrific civil war in Syria. The dreadful slaughter of combatants, adult civilians, children and […]

State “Oppression” – the powerful tool of the Dictator?

We read about it, we hear about it, we see it on the television. We are aghast, disgusted, and left feeling sick and powerless at the dreadful treatment of their peoples by the tyrants of the World and their organisations’ implements of oppression! Sometimes we find out about it historically, and are in disbelief about […]
