The reasonable layman who is blessed with a logical mind quite often quotes the much repeated dictum of Charles Dickens, to wit, “the law is an ass,” when confronted by judicial pronouncements which seem to defy all logic and fly in the face of rationality.

Two years ago, some local cricket officials, sportswriters and cricket fans were bumping their gums about our national team going it alone. This was after the team won a “fast food” cricket competition in India.

What is Watson Duke up to? What is his agenda? I refuse to believe that it is merely the pay rise for public servants. Is there a PSA plan to sabotage the efforts of the Government to pull us out of the financial hole in which the last administration has plunged us?

The role of the law in our society is to keep order, to assure fair treatment, and to protect the disadvantaged. Failure to enforce the law and the appeasement of law-break- ers are sure ways to reverse the gains of civilisation, and take this country back to the bush.
