I'd rather have Cyril's weight in gold (pre death obviously).
You can't, Broon sold of "Cyril's Weight in Gold" in the 90s, at below market rates.

The one-eyed twunt.

"He confirmed that when the CPS carried out a review of the case in 1998, it was decided no proceedings would be brought against the MP, because he had been told in 1970 that he would not be charged, a decision that could only be reversed if new evidence was unearthed."

Crown Prosecution Service is an inaccurate title. They are a prosecuting monopoly enjoyed only by the Home Office police forces. If they were truly a Crown Authority then they would accept prosecution files from any subject of the Realm.

A member of the public can institute criminal proceedings (if they can afford to) and later ask the CPS to take it forward in the public interest. Good luck with that.

My understanding is that the Attorney General is overall custodian of public interest decisions (IE Not to prosecute certain offenders) and that he represents both the interests of the Crown and the Govt. His interpretation of his duty appears to amount to not having an effing clue what decisions were taken or by whom ...

You can't even bring a private prosecution for many laws now, since Parliament puts a clause in saying that a prosecution may only be brought "by or with the consent" of a given prosecutor (usually the DPP).

Just heard an interview with an alleged victim, he said the experience left him feeling 'crushed.'
