Government ordered rioters to be gaoled

I have just read a report that a magistrate claims to have been directed by the Government to imprison all rioters.  Not sure where this was originally reported.

I cannot say whether this is true or not, but if the magistrates at Camberwell Green did accede to such a command then it would seem to be a breach of their oath as JP's as well as a breach of the Rule of Law.


  1. I have to say I was shocked to read this. As far as I'm aware, we have been given no such 'direction'. Whether this is a bit of mischievous reporting or the utterings of a tired and jaded JP I cannot say.
