Welcome to Without Prejudice…. Our guests tonight are Timothy Pitt-Payne QC from 11 KBW and Amanda Bancroft, a former practising barrister and author of the Beneath The Wig blog. Regular panelist David Allen Green, sadly, is giving a speech elsewhere and cannot be with us.
We have a lively range of topics for you tonight – The Milly Dowler case controversy – Legal aid cuts – The position of Scots Human Rights Law, the UK Supreme Court and Alex Salmond’s extraordinary interventions. We also plan to look at FOI, the Rehabilitation of Offenders Bill and Ken Clarke’s ‘Stab a burglar’ law reform plans.
(Apologies for helicopter noises – Police helicopter and businessmen escaping the traffic jams caused by the strike marches! – )
David Allen Green, solicitor, is the author of the Jack of Kent blog and is the legal correspondent at The New Statesman. Carl Gardner is an ex-government lawyer and is the author of the Head of Legal blog
