He acted as he did in the way that the DPP was misapplying the MBA in a particular way. That evidence she relied upon did not either rationally support that conclusion or it was wholly irrational to take the steps that were taken without further enquiry

Wishing the best of luck to the victims of the 20 rape complaints the CPS failed to charge who today in a landmark case with @EVAWuk, @centreWJ + others bring their complaint against the director of public prosecutions (DPP).

This is a national scandal the CPS must answer to.
