Secret Barrister: …bunting and tinsel!
About a year ago I was recommended a book written by ‘The Secret Barrister’ – the title eludes me. I did promise to put up a blog about this book in my reply to the comment post – sorry for the delay.
The Secret Barrister is a barrister (duh!) who writes an award winning anonymous blog about the judicial system. Their book exposes the many flaws – underfunding, lack of resources, lack of preparation time, the vultures, accusers and accused both being failed, judges long past retirement and CPS and police operate (bunting and tinsel)of great interest.
I went from shock to laughter (very witty) to despair to anger, and back again. Even though I’ve experienced much of what has been described – the pantomime of two high – profile trials which had nothing to do with truth and ‘justice’ (the jackals circling for their pound of flesh from their weakened quarry) – I still found many aspects astounding and disgraceful.
Get this book!
Be happy, be safe and be kind.
