Further ructions in the Indian courts

This time it is cops versus lawyers, rather than judges battering each other.

The Times of India notes scuffling in Lucknow, which kicked off when the splendidly named Sardar Mange, an alleged gangster, grabbed a rifle from a policeman and pointed it at the lawyers. Said advocates were less than happy about this and attempted to enact summary justice on Mange and his boss, before having to settle for a face off with the Indian plod. Things then calmed down somewhat, and the lawyers settled for having an al fresco dharna - 'the practice of exacting justice or compliance with a just demand by sitting and fasting at the doorstep of an offender until death or until the demand is granted'.

Any chance Cherie Blair, Michael Mansfield and others might be persuaded to try for the first of those options? Please?

What's wrong with pointing a rifle at lawyers? It sounds to me as if Sri Mange has his head screwed on.

O/T but boy Dave has announced that, if prime minister, he will still have time to be involved in his children's bath time.

He makes Tony Blair look like a genius.

(Read the readers' comments in The Torygraph. He is hemhorraging votes for the Tories. People loathe him.)
