Veteran CPS basher Neil Addison (pictured) notched up another round in his battle against the service. Former senior crown prosecutor Addison, who resigned in 1995 after being suspended for his political activities while on the Bar Council, has since been consistently passed over for jobs at the CPS, despite enjoying a good reputation among his contemporaries. Addison criticised the CPS decision to appoint only two of its 42 new chief prosecutors from outside its existing ranks, and stated he was "profoundly depressed" by the choice. Addison has been terrier-like in his campaign against the service, which has included pre-empting the sentiments of the Glidewell Report by calling the CPS "bureaucratic, demoralised and self-obsessed" four years ago.
