Alison Saunders has sparked controversy this week after receiving a damehood in this week's New Years Honours list.
Some are calling it a 'reward for failure' and a 'disgrace'.
Having had contact with her myself, I agree with the criticism. I found her pompous and entitled, not at all like other Barristers and CPS employees. I met some wonderful people.
Under her charge, we had to fight for Justice. In rape cases, evidence had been with-held from the defence team, leading to a review of every rape and serious assault case in the country.
Without getting political, we hear how the cuts are responsible for every single misdemeanor but no one is mentioning the millions of pounds wasted and the lives that have been ruined while she was in charge of the CPS. Jobs, families and lives have been lost on her watch, so I for one will not be raising a glass on her damehood, and I for one will never address her as a Dame.
