Justice, o sweet justice

For the record, I am not a vengeful person and honestly consider desire revenge to be the lowest of emotions. It is difficult, however, not to occasionally appreciate justice when you see it, especially when it is poetic.

I also realise that to some this will be old news. However, in the course of writing this week's Labour Uncut piece, I have discovered that former Mayor of Tower Hamlets, Lutfur Rahman, was a month ago struck off the register as a solicitor and left to pay £86,300 in costs. Shame!

Yes, the Lutfur Rahman that once tried to have me arrested on a specious charge after I wrote critical things about him, was not only tried and convicted of electoral fraud in 2015 but is now no longer allowed to practice as a lawyer, on the grounds that he essentially can't be trusted. 

And yes, o litigious Mr Rahman, I think that is a reasonable summing up of what the regulator said about you. Only surprising is that he has somehow escaped criminal prosecution, but hey.

Justice, o sweet justice.
