Sigh... As an ex Crown & County Court officer of ten years I can tell you straight that this action is too lttle and too late.. Measures are already in place to counter such actions and will ony now fuel further harsher measures to be put in place... Such actions against these 'Judges' are futile and a total waste of time and results in only more tax payers expense in protecting them. Attacks against any and all UK courts directly is nothing but making short lived headlines and serves no useful purpose in trying to educate the people the injustices being served upon them.

This is great! Imagine if people actually rallied around larger causes and arrested officials acting against their oaths
How is it bull # and meaningless? What he did was legal. It's not a fantasy.
