@BarristerSecret @prospect_uk "...general ignorance of the law has a cost. It means that a person usually has no stock of legal knowledge with which to counter false claims about the law."
@BarristerSecret @prospect_uk "There is, of course, a certain irony that a book about legal fakery is written by someone whose exact legal credentials are not revealed...

...The authority of this author is in the sheer quality of the writing. "
"Some characters keep reappearing. One former minister Chris Grayling is described putting forward a daft, ineffective law on self-defence against burglars and then later putting forward a similarly daft, ineffective law on compensation and health and safety."
"The sickening account of how various campaigners exploited the dire cases of infants Charlie Gard and Alfie Evans reveals the horrors that can happen when the media depiction becomes divorced from legal reality....

...It is a chapter you will long remember reading."
The only real problem with the book is that it conflates two separate (if related) problems - the problem of general ignorance/stupidity about the law (the Grayling problem), and the problem of those who seek to misuse/abuse law (the Cummings problem)

But that's a quibble
Prospect have wonderfully put my piece as a double-page spread in the print edition

Never had anything like that before, as my stuff is usually/mainly online

This was my first ever published book review, btw
