Never mind the Diplocks

It appears that there is no end to the SoS’s generosity in the aftermath of the Historic Statement. Suspected terrorists are to be given the right to jury trial, at precisely the moment when the right is to be withdrawn from certain ODCs. Down south, the policy has, of course been moving in the opposite direction, with the minister hinting that it’s not only terrorism, but organused crime which concerns him. Of couse the policy may yet change, not least as the scourge of shinnerdom now appears to be bored with his job.

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
