Joshua Rozenberg legal commentator steals comment from Jailhouselawyer

Joshua Rozenberg legal commentator steals comment from Jailhouselawyer

"Moreover, that the UKSC wants to be judge, jury and executioner in its own cause" (see my comment).

I contend that Joshua Rozenberg is doing a Johann Hari!

"But let's not suddenly pretend that acting as judge and jury in your own cause is a long-standing principle of human rights".

What makes you think I had ever read your original post?

You apparently wrote somewhere that the UKSC is judge and jury in its own cause. I suggested that the British government wanted to be judge and jury in its own cause. Where's the plagiarism?

Kindly withdraw your defamatory comment.

To be fair, there have been a couple of times in my life when I've read a good line somewhere, forgotten about it and then used it when the subject came up again later, mistaking it for one of my own original thoughts. It tends to happen when I drink too much beer while I'm reading.

Not that I'm suggesting that Mr Rozenberg is some sort of lager lout.

I have no idea whether the comment claiming to be from Joshua Rozenberg is really from him.

I do know that the comment From Tim is really from Tim.

It can also come from lazy journalism

You really can't admit you got it wrong, John, can you? You know my email address, You know my twitter feed. So stop pretending to yourself that I'm an impostor. And stop making offensive remarks about my journalism.

Anonymous said...'s a pretty well-known phrase, for everyone to be "judge" of their own cause or "judge, jury, and executioner."

Joshua Rozenberg: If you look at your name and that of anonymous you could be any old Tom, Dick and Harry for all I know. There is such a thing as internet impersonation. Whereas, Tim and myself have verifiable blue links not anonymous black type, and our photos which prove who we are. If you used your Twitter identity I would have known straight away.

Your accusation is incorrect. I have responded to Leslie the Reader's Editor at the Grauniad. She can cc you on my explanation and apology. Have you considered seeking psychiatric help for your over sized ego problem?
