Ashley Cole, the footballer, adulterer and husband of Cheryl Cole, was found guilty of speeding by a court today.
Astonishingly, the arrest was made in November 2008 ! Why the hell do our courts react so slowly ? Why has it taken 14 months before this case was heard ? Is it any wonder people have no faith in the legal system ?
The fact is that the CPS and our court system is held in such low regard by people in general. I was told be a friend who is related to a barrister that he knows which cases, even when his client is guilty, that he will win based on which CPS person turns up. Apparently some are "utterly useless" and "do not understand the cases they are presenting and in some cases offer lesser charges because they do not have the knowledge to prosecute the more serious charges."
