Default UK: Real crime with fake justice

a sentence of eight years-which, in effect, will be four or five

I asked the publisher the impossible question of whether she would have
published the book if someone close to her had not had such firsthand

A Land Fit for Criminals has sold well and has been very widely
discussed, though not by the most important liberal newspapers, which
would find the whole subject in bad taste. But the book's publishing
history demonstrates how close we have come to an almost totalitarian

right-thinking, should feel
