The guy on QT - Jerry Hayes? - went off a supreme rant on this last week. I know very little about it to be honest, but it does seem that the proposed changes haven’t been discussed / debated much - they are not really in the public domain yet.
Expect they will we significantly changed as/when they get to parliament - but that’s not to say the proposals aren’t nuts.
Interesting BL. Reading your statement the typed comments, it is interesting/obvious how they picked out the comments that they could categorise to support an account they were trying to prove.
So they picked out your statements about alcohol, unauthorised entry and adverse comments about the police. Their cover sheet shows what they were interested in and these categorisations would have been used to support the story as they were spinning it.
Sounds like you had a close call yourself. I can imagine something like that would be very hard to forget, so it must be very tough for you to expect decent/fair treatment from the police (which, I have to say, is the standard I normally expect).
1, They are in the public domain, the consultation paper is out, they provided 8 weeks for people to consult.
2, These changes will not go before Parliament. The Justice minister is relying upon secondary legislation, called Statutory Instruments, to make these changes, so they will never be debated in Parliament or voted on.
The most frightening changes to our justice system will be made with little to no consultation and will be made without any Parliamentary debate.
