Regardless of how you view Davidson it's worth suspending your prejudices and reading this book. First because in parts it's very funny. Second it provides an inside, and quite disturbing, look at a police investigation from the point of view of the accused. Third it will shake your faith in the 'innocent until proven guilty' basis of British justice.
It's written in a rather chippy style which can become a bit wearing and at times it borders on rant. You can almost forgive the latter given that Davidson was faced with some absurd allegations which the police seemed determined to pursue regardless of the facts.
Whether or not there has been an establishment witch hunt in the wake of the Jimmy Savile revelations is open to question. However, this book will certainly make you question the workings of the justice system and - although you may not be persuaded to like him - you'll come away with a new found respect for Jim Davidson.
I often tell people that if they think the judicial system in the United Kingdom has anything to do with justice, fairness or the truth they are mistaken. It has to do with theatre!
There is always someone worse of than yourself.
It turned my problems into small potatoes!!!!!!
