    At today's Maurice Robinson magistrates court hearing, District Judge King refused a media request to see the charges Robinson faces. I sometimes wonder if judges realise the unnecessary confusion and scrambling they cause when making unwarranted decisions like this.

    It puts court staff under pressure from journalists who have a pressing need to know the exact charges, check dates and spellings, etc. It makes prosecutors needlessly nervous about telling reporters information they are entitled to have

    And in today's case particularly, I think it means most reporters went away from the hearing without a key detail that was laid out on the charge sheet. And we'll never know why the judge said 'no' in the first place.

    I think some of the families re-mortgaged to get the money. Someone commented that they likely think the streets are paved with gold here, because even working full time that is some debt to pay off.

    Agree MR has been at it a while as some of us suspected. They have evidence from December but l think it's been a little longer than that, imho.

    Now when are we going to hear that our favourite fag smuggler and owner of multiple trucks has been arrested?

    #Thurrock MP @JackieDP says the problem with people trafficking is to do with too few checks being done in Belgium at the port of Zebrugge and is NOT to do with under investment at Purfleet.
