Is justice an unattainable ideal?
The expression “an elephant in the room” is a common metaphorical phrase that describes a significant and obvious issue or problem that is being ignored, avoided, or overlooked in a situation or discussion. The key points of this expression include:
Obviousness: The issue or problem being referred to is significant and conspicuous, akin to having an elephant present in a room. It is something that is hard to ignore due to its size, but is often left unaddressed.
Avoidance: The expression implies that despite the issue being apparent, it is being deliberately avoided or ignored by those involved. It may be uncomfortable, sensitive, or difficult to confront, and people may choose to ignore it or pretend it does not exist.
Lack of acknowledgement: The phrase highlights that the problem is not being openly discussed or acknowledged, and is often brushed aside or overlooked in favor of more comfortable or less contentious topics.
Awareness: The expression also suggests that the issue is known or recognized by those involved, but for various reasons, it is not being openly acknowledged or addressed.
Significance: The “elephant in the room” is usually a significant issue that has the potential to impact the situation or discussion in a meaningful way, and addressing it may be necessary for effective communication or problem-solving.
In summary, the key points of the expression “an elephant in the room” include the obviousness and significance of an issue, its deliberate avoidance or lack of acknowledgement, and the potential impact it may have on the situation or discussion.
1 The hidden and unhidden strings attached
“BBC employees lied and used fake documents to obtain the interview with my mother, made lurid and false claims about the royal family which played on her fears and fuelled paranoia.”
Prince William said: 20 mei 2021
This image is the representation of an issue when obvious mistakes are made witin, causing untold pain on people who have done nothing wrong.
The justice system is used as a cover-up.
A wrong, a faulty or broken justice system.
Something that is tolerated, an erroneous fuctioning of justice, as illustrated in the examples on this web page and throughout the website, over een period of time of almost 100 years. Starting with The Scottsboro Boys in 1931. Video 1 The Scottsboro Boys
it is incomprehensible that a crowbar is used to do clearly wrong things instead of discussing and resolving the issue.
When you are so at fault as a con man in the system, are you still a human being? Is this still a society?

The Post Office Wrongful Convictions Scandal
- More than a decade since her family’s life was torn apart, Marion Holmes is still angry.
- “I will never forgive the Post Office and I will never forget,” she says. “They ruined our lives.”
- Marion’s husband Peter was a victim of what has been called Britain’s biggest miscarriage of justice.
- He was a Post Office manager wrongly convicted of stealing £46,000 from his own branch.
- The former police officer’s reputation and health were broken.
How is it possible that The Post Office organized such a large-scale cover-up?

It is unthinkable
that such a thing could happen!

3 A Candid Camera-like Event
Royal Mail’s lawsuit against its employees, the Postmasters, is the definition of ‘A Perversion of Justice’.
When computerising the post offices all over Britain with the new software ‘Horizon’, it was immediately known from the postmaster’s reports to the Helpdesk that there were bugs in the software, as explained through all the videos on the webpage:
That Royal Mail dodges its responsibility and reverses the situation and looks for the easiest way to prosecute the Postmasters for theft.
The ‘Red Line’ has not only been crossed, it is leaning towards a Candid Camera type of event.
The website contains over 500 short candid camera shots of about a minute and a half in length. (There is one on almost every web page).
No matter how astonishing and unreal the event may be, it is seen to be similar to a real situation.
There was not only ‘No Crime’, the postmasters had not done anything wrong and they were not the object of the problem that transactions were lost and the postmasters were left with cash deficits of tens of thousands of euros, which they were contractually obliged to make up themselves.
In the process, Royal Mail repeatedly told lies to every postmaster who had cash deficits, namely that he was the only one for whom this occurred.
This case is a clear deliberate abuse of justice by a mastodon ‘Royal Mail’ to crush innocent people.
4 Justice is brittle and fragile
It is the weakness of the system, the problem is not whether someone is guilty or innocent, when you are dealing with a very reliable person and you see what happened in the way the case was handled.
The Post Office Wrongful Convictions Scandal illustrates and highlights how susceptible the justice system is to deception and how easily a jury can fall into a trap.

Justice is a dangerous weapon that can be abused without restraint.
Procecutor Adam Foss puts it this way: I came out as a prosecutor expected to do justice, but I never learned what justice was in my classes – none of us do. None of us do.
Legal psychologist Nopen says not everyone is fit to interrogate someone.
It illustrates the expression: ‘because it was easy’ used when a wrongful conviction case is broken after decades.
For example after 16 years of work of an innocent project in the case of Anthony Ray Hinton who spent 30 years innocent in prison!
A kind of justice that relies on Indian stories, staging a senseless display as if it were a banana republic, not less nor more. It simply does not amount to anything. A wrong justice, like a wrong war.
5 Am I my brother’s keeper?
A saying from the Bible’s story of Cain and Abel. After Cain had murdered his brother Abel, God asked him where his brother was. Cain answered, “I know not; am I my brother’s keeper?”
There is an intrinsic abuse of justice when everyone knows the reality of a case. A 7-year-long procedure, including two unjustified appeals in cassation, then refusing to give your DNA as evidence. Only when the court imposes a fine of 5,000 euros per day for further refusal, the proof that everyone already knew will come.
