Legitimacy, Courts and State-Induced Guilty Pleas in Britain
The formal re-ordering of power relations within the criminal justice system which Turner had instituted was only the start of a transformation which would continue for the next forty years. Over this period, the often-claimed 'neutrality' of the trial judge would be openly discarded, the professed 'independence' of the Bar further attenuated and 'the interests of the client' sidelined on the altar of State-defined 'efficiency'. In this chapter, we trace how the deep-seated message of Turner was brought to the surface and sanitised in the quest for the proclaimed 'cost-efficient' disposal of criminal cases.
