What’s in it for me? Learn how the British Establishment got away with (attempted) murder.
According to many British politicians, the country’s judicial system is the envy of the world. Its strength, they claim, is its fairness. Whether a lord or commoner, a person will receive the same treatment before the court. After all, English courts even tried and convicted a ruling monarch!
But is this claim of fairness true? These blinks show you that the British judicial system is not as impartial as many claim it to be.
The story of Jeremy Thorpe, a Liberal Party politician educated at both Eton and Oxford, is a telling tale. In these blinks, you’ll find out how through Thorpe’s connections with the “Establishment,” or British elite, he was able to dodge accusations of attempted murder.
In these blinks, you’ll discover
- how money donated for “electoral reform” was used for murder;
- why police changed a statement from a key witness; and
- which other crimes the Establishment have tried to cover up.
