About this site

The editor

Scott Yorke

I always wanted to write about pies, but somehow politics and the law got in the way.

This site is the culmination of many years of hard work, and a huge number of people died in terrible and painful ways on the way to getting it up and running.

But I salute each and every one of the people I squashed, spat on, or stabbed in the back on that long journey.

Who am I?

My name is Scott Yorke. I’m a lawyer, but this site doesn’t really have anything to do with my day job, because, really, what kind of twisted job would that be if it did?

This blog is my own, and the posts do not represent the opinions of anyone other than me.

Nor does anything on this blog represent legal advice. This is my hobby, not a job. I don’t give out legal advice over the internet.


Yes, I am a bit left leaning. But some of my best friends, etc. etc.

I am also a long-suffering member of the Labour Party. Now you can’t say I didn’t tell you.

If you’re in the news media and want to use anything on this site, go for it. I am vain, however, so a mention would be nice.

What is your moderation policy?

I have a very simple blog moderation policy. Unfortunately for you, it is a secret.

Will you dance for me?
