Test your knowledge

Regular readers will know I punctuate the year with three Quizzes – August Bank Holiday, New Year and Easter. So here is this year’s Easter offering. It’s a simple multiple choice test about anything and everything to do with the criminal justice system.

I hope that this Easter marks a definitive step in our journey to lifting lockdown.

Good luck and do share your results on social media especially if you have bragging rights to announce.


Congratulations. Your knowledge of the criminal justice system is outstanding.

Never mind. Better luck next time.
