To the ordinary man or woman in the street the justice system of the UK is a somewhat distant safeguard of the freedom to live in security and safety. However when the system becomes the servant of the rich and powerfull in society then it becomes a tyrant of the most detestable kind.
This story is a graphic illustration of what happens to the ordinary person when justice is compromised by the powerful in society. I am left with the sense that two world wars were fought to give us merely the illusion of democracy.
Read the book, its more reality than fiction!
