Witch-Hunt out for DPP!
Calls for her resignation have followed the Director of Public Prosecutionsâ€™ reversal of her decision not to prosecute Lord Janner, after a review by an independent lawyer.
â€œAlison Saunders should be sacked â€“ for the Janner case, and for her absurd views on rape,â€ wrote Julia Hartley Brewer in the Independent. â€œWhat the DPP has instructed goes against every principle of natural justice.â€
In the Telegraph, Joan Smith argued in the DPPâ€™s defence:
â€œIn the 18 months she has been DPP, it has become clear that Saunders is not afraid of taking unpopular decisions or challenging powerful interests. She has made a lot of enemies.
