Tuned into Sky Sunrise, for news and reports
To learn that the PM wants cameras in courts.
I’m not sure that’s sensible, but who am I to say;
Are courts to be the daytime TV of the modern day?
Think about the X Factor, and the nation it has bred;
People don’t want a job, they chase celebrity instead.
So putting the judicial system on view for all to see;
What kind of exposed community are we wanting this to be?
Picture the scene, in homes all round the land,
Families watching telly, sky remote in hand,
Would they prefer a murder or a little bit of fraud,
Or perhaps a case of pilfering if they’re particularly bored.
And what about the victims who have already suffered?
Their actions will televised, viewed, streamed and buffered.
What benefit “transparency”? How will it be received?
Cameras in court – I don’t know what it will achieve!
