Tuesday's Quote of the Day
"This is supposed to be a centre of excellence. To have an indictment drawn up by some illiterate idiot is just not good enough." - Judge David Paget is unimpressed by charges drawn up by the Crown Prosecution Service

"It's quite disgraceful," the judge judged, throwing the paper down on his bench.
