It's over my head
+Saint Vincent Cable, the former Liberal Democrat leader told the BBC this evening that he had no idea that there was a huge miscarriage of justice taking place in the Post Office, where hundreds of local postmasters and mistresses were being charged with fraud because of a defective new computer system. Cable was the Secretary of State for Business at the time, with responsibility for the Post Office. He is also the same sanctimonious creep who alone (allegedly) predicted the 2008 financial crash and was briefly the all-seeing Mystic Meg of British politics. But he had no idea of what is now being described as the UK’s biggest miscarriage of justice—with the first tranche of the wrongly accused being exonerated in the courts. When asked if one MP, Kevan Jones, campaigning on the issue had contacted him, he could only say ‘I can’t remember.’ Over to you Mr Jones. Another aspect of this case is how the Post Office used private prosecutions to pursue its victims. According to one former Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), also interviewed this evening, the DPP can always intervene in private prosecutions one way or the other. I’m wondering if there are any other ex-DPPs around who would care to comment on their take - or non-role - in the UK’s ‘biggest miscarriage of justice.’
+I noticed today at least 20 or more passenger jets flying over my patch of Yorkshire. Thankfully none of them looked set to land here, but it does seem so far as con trails are concerned that everything is back to normal. Where have they been? Where are they going? How many carry the infernal disease?
