Today’s front page of The Times newspaper was issued ahead of time
yesterday evening, bearing the headline ‘Courts to be privatised in radical
justice shake-up<http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/news/politics/article3776508.ece>’.
While many hoped it was a late April Fool or a piece of over-zealous
reporting, closer investigation suggests these hopes were futile.  The UK
Government has once more chosen to pillage a public service in the pursuit
of private profit.  These changes, in combination with other privatisations
and cuts, will result in a two tier justice system – or justice to the
highest bidder alone.

original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made,
through disobedience and through rebellion.” — Oscar Wilde, Soul of Man

dummy?” — Jarvis Cocker
