    1 Ghandi
    2 Dostoevsky
    3 Shame?
    4 pass
    5 An inquisitorial system, such as in Scotland, does have some benefits we could well use. What I would like to see is the so called justice system becoming much more user friendly and affordable. Sadly the quality of some barristers these days is sadly lacking.

    Just a joke from a great book
