Judge…


I went to crown court the other day…bit of a fave for my sarge…she needed to supply two bobbies to keep an eye on some rowdy friends and family off a chap up for a manslaughter…

I was present when he summed up… it was a pleasure to hear someone speak with such authority, knowledge and compassion.

For a moment…I almost felt a glimmer of hope that our legal system had some amazing people in it…

Heh…

  3. Brief Encounter

    The wisdom of Solomon.
