This is all kinds of fucked up

Cherie Blair/Booth spares religious man jail, here

In her infinite wisdom Cherie Booth has given a bloke who got in an argument about who was where in the queue a suspended sentence, partially, with the bizarre reasoning that he was religious, having just come from his mosque, and as such knew what he did was wrong.

I have a nagging suspicion that this is a throw away turn of phrase in the sentencing that has been blown out of context, but for fuck sake a Judge should be able to think a step ahead and see that someone might pick up on the apparent logical basis of their decision and interpret it differently to how it was originally, genuinely meant.

If they didn't we wouldn't need courts in the first place.

No wonder the costs review is such a cluster fuck of "oh the poor insurance industry" rather than a genuine attempt to create a sensible system. With Judges like this who the fuck needs enemies.
