  • Hard News: Doing over the witness,

    I find it somewhat galling that Police cannot proceed with a prosecution of John Banks for electoral fraud in 2010 when the evidence was available as demonstrated when a private citizen prosecuted, yet when it seems extremely unlikely that they will find anything that will identify the hacker it's still considered worth committing considerable resources to what could be regarded as a lesser offence.
    The only answer I can see is that both incidents had more to do with politics than justice.
    I am gravely concerned for the integrity of our democracy.
