Policing Bill Part Two

4/6/2021
Barrister Chris Kehoe shifts his attention to an aspect of the proposed Policing Bill which has not been widely reported; the new powers which Police would have when it comes to dealing with Travellers. It's all starting to feel a bit 1930's Germany... There's also riffs about Wind Turbines, Scrappy fucking Doo, Homes Under The Hammer, and at the end I do my new joke about dogs which may or may not be sexist.

Policing Bill Part One

3/15/2021

What amendments to the Public Order Act 1986 does the Bill seek to make? Who benefits from the Bill? Was the police response to a mass gathering of Rangers fans in Glasgow a week ago wrong? Were the Met police right to be...

11/9/2020
Boardman, Kehoe, law chat + half baked ramblings that are sporadically funny, well, not really funny tbh, mildly amusing would be a better description.
