Someone has got to say this: it has only been achieved by abolishing the rule against double jeopardy and accordingly a form of justice for one family has been achieved at the risk to the rest of the country. Which of us who is innocent of an accusation could defend themselves against police files so long after the event.

From the press and media reports over the years it does not surprise me that the jury found the accused guilty and I have no reason not to accept that. But this was a political trial as much as a criminal trial and all sorts of precedents have been set which it will be difficult and costly to maintain.

The orgy of self-criticism by the police last evening used energy and time better spent on solving the latest murders, whether thought to be racially inspired or not. I am fed up with police officers giving their personal opinions about possible changes to the law, whether a sentence was appropriate and so on.

To strive for ethnic (and gender, marital status, hobbies?) equivalence in the police as compared with society generally is facile and implies that senior police are unable to manage the force so instead depend on recruiting those perceived to have empathies matching society generally. How about having a police force which also matched the age profile of the population or the pension prospects - now there's a thought.

In order to bring thse murderers to justice it was seen as necessary to abolish the rule against double jeopardy. It is a great pity that some other way could not have been found of dealing with this case. We are witnessing the breaking down of Magna Carta, a basis of law which has stood the test of time and is in evedence in many Commonwealth countries and the USA. So we are being drawn closer the European system of law.
