A blow for human rights

The UK Supreme Court decision this week that suspects in Scottish criminal cases had their human rights denied when they were not given access to a lawyer when detained by the police without charge has far reaching implications.  Emergency legislation is being passed by the Scottish Parliament to rectify the anomalies.

Fantasy Bob understands that East of Scotland Cricket Association supremos are taking no chances in the light of this decision and will be making emergency changes to their competition rules.  Henceforth, any batsman being subject to an LBW appeal will have the right to legal representation before the umpire makes a decision.
