People’s Champion Peter Cadder, no law degree or experience, takes the mantle of de facto Scottish Justice Minister to deliver fair trial for all













Dear All

Today sees the introduction of Emergency legislation to give suspects the automatic right of access to a lawyer.

People already had the right under human rights; they were just denied the opportunity to exercise that right by the Government of Scotland.

Last night on Newsnight Scotland much was said about the Scottish “safeguards” as fronted by Paul McBride QC.

What McBride couldn’t or wouldn’t or doesn’t understand is that these alleged safeguards are enacted by the state and not the individual. The State decides what safeguards you can access during due process, completely wrong.

As such the protection is moot and irrelevant in the question of Human Rights; McBride was talking out his arse.

In the interviews with various people in the studio, the only one who in my opinion talked any sense was John Scott, the Human Rights Lawyer.

McBride kept a defence that the issue wasn’t clear cut as it seemed, I have to agree with the Labour Party turncoat Paul McBride, any dumb bastard would arrive at the same opinion.

The rest of us understand the issue perfectly well.

And so do people in other European and non EU Countries like Turkey, Russia, Ukraine, Poland and Cyprus.

So, Holyrood MSPs have been forced by the UK Supreme Court to grant people their human rights to a fair trial.

Remember Donald Dewar?

“There shall be a People’s Parliament”.

The Criminal Procedure (Legal Assistance, Detention and Appeals) (Scotland) Bill will extend the existing maximum six-hour period for detention to 12 hours - with the possibility of extension to 24 hours.

The Queen rubberstamps it via Royal Assent by the end of the week, given all the money she gets from the taxpayer, it is the least she can do.

There is some uproar that the legal aid bill will increase by up to £4 million but so what, the right to a fair trial shouldn’t be up for discussion.

One disturbing aspect of the Peter Cadder Case is the attempt to make High Court as the final court of appeal in criminal matters.

This is completely wrong, if it wasn’t for the UK Supreme Court upholding the Human Rights of ordinary Scottish people, they would still have been denied equality of arms.

“There shall be a People’s Parliament”.

A 20 year old called Peter Cadder who has no law degree took on the mantle of de facto Scottish Justice Minister and in a single day, he ensured that the Scottish people regardless of race, colour, creed; social-economic background got their full legal rights to a fair trial.

Peter Cadder has made the biggest legal breakthrough in Scotland in 30 years.

Maybe someone should vet him as a Candidate for Holyrood 2011, the people could do with a ‘People’s Champion’ rather than some middle class cannon fodder pretending to like the working class. You know the type, the ones who won’t work for them or do activism in their political branches but are really looking for a £55k a year meal ticket and 'dafties' to work for them.

A people's champion? Cadder who smashed a bottle of Buckfast over someone's head then stabbed someone else with the remains?
