  1. One of my legal cases was reported in Private Eye, a journalist friend working on the Paul Foot column in the Daily Mirror would do some moonlighting for them.

    I was challenging the Parole Decision not to direct my release. One of the points I argued referred to was that the psychiatrist member on the Panel fell asleep, and instead of the judge chairing the Panel giving him a dig in the ribs to wake him up, merely tut tutted and turned his back on him! I contended that as he was supposed to be assessing whether I posed a risk to the public, I stated that he could not do that when he was asleep!

    The Master of the Rolls said: “Quite, quite, Mr Hirst, but where does that get us?”

    I looked towards the sole figure in the press gallery before answering the judge, “An entry in Private Eye, Mi’Lud!”.

      Private Eye does attract some excellent journalists ;-)

      I would like to say I am surprised at the turning a blind eye to the falling asleep but sadly I am not. It seems to be how the British (in)justice system operates.

    Now this is different! Definitely agree with previous comment – ‘out of the box’. More fun than some of the dirty politics I’ve seen recently.
