In Pursuit of Justice for Countryside
Horace Rumpole of the Bailey inspired a light-hearted approach to 2017. Rumpole is often seen embracing and defending the figure of Justice. Since the 16th Century she is usually shown blindfolded to ensure impartiality, holding a sword and scales.
As with Rumpole, I applaud our mayor as he continues to ensure that Justice is both done and seen to be done. The appointment of an Integrity Commissioner was an excellent example and no doubt the proper selection of a successor to Richard Allen will follow.
