Simple: close the bugger’s department and put them all on the street


David Davis

Some fellow called “Keir” (I thought that was a cocktail) “Starmer” has said that householders ought not to have more right to protect their lives and property. He is something called the “Director of Public Prosecutions”. Not sure what that is for. Employment in a big outdoor-relief-system for superfluous law graduates, possibly. I do not know.

No Parliament can be bound by its predecessors. Therefore, a libertarian Parliament could Bring A Bill (it would be popular) to demolish and close a number of “State Departments”. Terminally. The staff to be put out on the street with a binliner each, having been body-searched for data-devices: all entire computers, disks, files, CDs, sticks, paper-filing-cabinets etc to be malleted or burned with fire.

These “departments” will need to cease to exist. No trace of their operation, existence, activities, salary and pension records, personnel lists, and the rest, must be let to remain.

Including this one.

For example: “Some Say….that there was a government department which said it was in charge of farming and the countryside….but there does not appear to be any evidence in the records…”

    The Director of Public Prosecutions heads up the Crown Prosecution Service. The CPS takes the result of a police investigation and decides whether to prosecute and for what offence. Someone has to do this, and it’s better if it isn’t the police. It’s part of the Criminal Justice system (the Court Service). If you don’t like the way it functions, say why. The powers of prosecutions will continue to exist, even in LA-LA-Land. As long as there is the Rule of Law you’ll require prosecutors.

    Not sure about that. By all means tear them down and sack the staff unless they can find something worthwhile to do, but don’t let these monstrosities of bureaucracy and incompetence disappear forever down one of their own memory holes. It’s said that those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it, and that must surely apply also to those who are ignorant of history because the records that might serve as a warning to our descendants have been erased.

    However, as per Tony Hollick’s comment it’s hard to see how a DPP like position in a CPS like body can be avoided in even a libertarian society (short of an actual anarchy), though of course accepting that shouldn’t mean having to accept an authoritarian tool in the job. He needs to go.

    • I don’t like the title, either: “Director of Public Prosecutions”…it sounds rather Jacobinical, and therefore fascist.

      In a libertarian situation, if we have to have something like that, the outfit which would consist of a few old men with laptops and telephones, should be handled by some retired colonel or other.

  4. It is highly unfortunate that such things are necessary. It a society where peace and tranquility are desired, rule of law must exist. I say this because without rule of law, that means 100% of the people will be 100% responsible for 100% of their actions 100% of the time. We all know that such perfection does not yet exist in our world; therefore, for the sake of not having a world full of chaos, we have the rule of law.

    With the rule o flaw comes the implied power to enforce that law. To do this, you will need the prosecutors. No matter what society you set up, even Libertarian, this will be needed. You can call it any other name you want but a rose by any other name will still smell as sweet.

    The trick would be not to get rid of the prosecutor but to control him. Holding him accountable for his actions with a watchdog agency of some sort might make sense so long as that agency was NOT a government agency. That way, the agency is beholden to the people, for the people and NOT a government lackey.

    For all you know, the position of DPP is already held by an ex-military type, or something like it. It doesn’t matter. What matters is who does what, not titles and ranks. Libertarian colonels are rather difficult to find in sufficient numbers, and the rank doesn’t exactly lend credence to a belief in their libertarian credentials.
