I’ve already posted about the bank charges story – the rest of the media coverage just seemed to be a rather vague retelling. So, in other news:

  • Much is made of the future of legal advice in supermarkets.  Apparently they are preparing for this by sending staff to the police as civilian detectives.  Surely the admissibility of evidence comes into question at some point??
  • The press, having enjoyed the experience so much with MPs, seem to want to turn the attention to the judiciary. I may explore this in more detail in a later post, but I’ll leave you pondering if it is wise to add another deterrent to skilled barristers moving to the bench.
  • The Metropolitan Police have locked up a mentally ill man for refusing to hand over his encryption keys, as prescribed in the good old Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act.  I learned about the story from @AVerySecretBlog on Twitter.
