Nigel Allcoat

Recommended Posts

I'll second that! Very elegantly put and thoughtful.

If only those in positions of power had as much honesty and humility. Grayling was, without doubt, one of the most dangerous and damaging Ministers of Justice we've had the misfortune to suffer.

brilliant speech from Nigel on why he resigned as a Magistrate on the Today programme just now

 

Are you sure it was the Today programme? At 6pm in the evening?

I didn't hear the programme but, Oh dear! I find myself in disagreement - yet again - but not with Nigel Allcoat! I was also a Magistrate, for some 20 years, I suppose that made me, according to the newspapers reporting this story, "A senior Magistrate". I resigned when I left the UK.

 

My disagreement comes not with what Nigel has done but with the fact that it has been brought here to a forum for discussion about the Organ and its music - not for, what easily could be, political debate!

My apologies for expressing an opinion, and here's me thinking that forums existed for an exchange of information, debate or mutual discussion. With that I bid farewell for the second time in two years, no wonder that there have been so few posts of late.

Oh dear, oh dear.

 

My reading of the situation, FWIW, is that a respected colleague has done, in another part of his life, an admirable and humane thing.
