Ministry of Justice
Oh dude - are you in shit now...
Created in a fit of pique over their (quite frankly) fucking abysmal record of tackling crime and its causes, the government decided in 2007 to dream up the rather apocalyptic-sounding Ministry of Justice. Well, it is 2007AD after all, so why not make up a department with a title only George Orwell or a Labour government could have dreamt up?
Like initiatives and re-branding exercises, the creation of a new ministry does not necessarily solve the problem of sorting out the mess of social decline. In a twisted, paradoxical way it can even exacerbate the problem. Let's face it, Labour's War on Crime is a fucking joke, as crime has soared off the scale during Labour's tenure and its previous attempts to 'get tough' hardly engender confidence; so it's pretty certain that this new überministerium will achieve the square root of fuck all apart from issuing endless mission statements and made up statistics.
What most certainly will not happen is some bad ass Judge/Jury/Executioner on a hover bike blasting chavs with a laser cannon. Not only would such actions befit the ministry's title, it might actually go some way to redressing the balance against the bad guys. Dream on.
