Top judge launches attack on Alison Saunders over acquittals in ‘drunk rape’ cases – but she hits back claiming he is ‘victim blaming’

Our thanks to Paul for this. The start of the article:

A judge has launched an unprecedented attack on the head of the Crown Prosecution Service over her handling of rape trials.

Judge Philip Shorrock claimed that Alison Saunders, the Director of Public Prosecutions, had less understanding of the cases than a newspaper columnist.

He said in his 40 years as a barrister and on the bench, most trials led to the alleged rapist being ‘unsurprisingly’ acquitted because both parties had been drinking or taking drugs, and there was no independent proof of what had happened.

But last night, in an extraordinary outburst, Mrs Saunders hit back and accused the judge of peddling old-fashioned views.

  1. “Victim blaming” is a phrase right out of the feMarxist lexicon proving, (from her own mouth if you please), that she is a pernicious political agitator with an agenda of injecting poison into a society more free than the one she wants to replace it with.

    She has sought, and gained, a position of power as part of Mao Tse Tung’s ‘Long march through the institutions’.
    As such she has no right to be where she is, and needs to be forced out as a matter of urgency and, ironically, justice.

    I am open to suggestions…

  2. Saunders simply has to go. Maybe this is the beginning of the end. I wish someone would start a petition to get rid of her.

  3. Yes he was peddling ‘old fashioned views’ such as the assumption of innocence unless guilt is proven and the requirement of evidence beyond a reasonable doubt before reaching a guilty verdict.
    What an old fuddy-duddy!

  4. Good that a “white knight” finally breaks cover with the truth. The CPs under Saunders and Starmer are taking forward “political” trials and to do so are attempting to subvert the presumption of innocence and “due process”. Clearly Starmer’s intention was to bolster an intended career in politics, now slightly compromised that his beloved “new labour” is on the ropes. Otherwise he’d be sure to be “a rising star”.
