There are no excuses – I can only apologise – Johnson

first_imgJohnson said he had full belief in his squad but did not see them hit form in the BS3 encounter.Callum Robinson tapped in the only goal of the game in the first half, to which City offered little in reply.Famara Diédhiou had a couple of off-target headers, while Josh Brownhill’s late free kick was tipped away by Preston’s keeper Declan Rudd.But it was a game which lacked creativity and free-flowing football, with City’s head coach left frustrated.When asked about Saturday’s performance, Johnson said it was “Not good enough.”“That sums it up really well. I don’t think enough individuals played at the top of their game and I can only apologise.“I’m very disappointed, I’m particularly hurt because I think we have got to do more and, more importantly, we have to play our way.“Credit to Preston because they were dogged and difficult to play against. They have a lot of their best players back fit and they are a good side but we have to do more. Too many players on the day just didn’t hit top form and the buck stops with me.“We talked a lot about statistics last week but today it was about not being good enough. “We are not at home now until December and sometimes that helps because our away form has been pretty good. We can sit off the game a little bit and break. We’re expected to take the ball at home and produce wonderful, flowing football but we are not confident enough at this moment to do that.”last_img read more

Justice VR Krishna Iyer: The Conscience Keeper

Notwithstanding their political, economic or even social orientation, if there is one critical trait that judges must,Justice VR Krishna IyerThe perception of justice lies at the heart of every democracy. The trust and faith of the people imposes a prodigious responsibility on those who are charged with dispensing justice. Notwithstanding their political, economic or even social orientation, if there is one critical trait that judges must have in the discharge of this onerous duty, it is compassion. Empathy for the last man in the last row- and Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer had that in plenty. He marshalled both these traits and deployed them in the service of the disempowered, ostracised and the impecunious elements of our social milieu.It was perhaps an active involvement in public affairs early on in his life that imbued him with a deep insight into the yearning of an ordinary person to be treated in a humane and just manner. For the ordinary Indian still perceives the state as an aggressor whenever it interfaces with him or her. Rarely in the hallowed portals of the Indian judiciary has a person who is active in public life ascended to high judicial office; Justice Iyer was one of those rare exceptions. In the extremely polarised paradigm of Indian political life where suspicion is the norm and scepticism at best the exception, it is perhaps the most eloquent tribute to his integrity and rectitude that he was able to surmount this chasm and command the respect of not only the widest cross-section of society but also his critics. Tragically something that is not even in the realm of possibility today for good people on all sides of the great Indian political abyss.advertisementHe was appointed to the Supreme Court in the wake of the supersession of three judges. It was a moment in India’s national journey when progressive politics and judicial institutions were unfortunately on a collision course. Given his left-of-centre ideological disposition, it was perceived that he would be in sync with the philosophical predilection of the government of the day. However, Justice Iyer knew what is expected of a judge and his conduct exemplified the objectivity and neutrality that must be intrinsic to judicial office.Justice Iyer was a pioneer in improving the plight of undertrials and jail convicts. His verdict in the matter of Sunil Batra vs Delhi Administration would go down in history as the trigger for prison reform. He proscribed the manacling and abuse of prisoners and laid down the maxim ‘bail, not jail’ for undertrials. A dictum turned on its head over the years. Though he was always circumspect about capital punishment, in the later years of his life he became all the more convinced about its amorality. Similarly he displayed the courage of conviction in ensuring that due process is read down into the interpretation of Article 21 (on protection of life and personal liberty), especially when courts at that point in time were diffident in doing so. He considered Article 14 (on equality before the law) both as a sword and shield against the arbitrary conduct of state institutions. This credence was responsible for unleashing a tempest of innovative jurisprudence.Justice Iyer believed in the doctrine of separation of powers and the intricate construction of the constitutional balance. He saw the legislative and judicial institutions not as adversarial entities but as establishments that should mutually reinforce each other with their collective and crystallised wisdom. In turn they would enrich the great democratic experiment by making it more refined, sensitive and nuanced in its character. In his seven years at the Supreme Court he left an indelible imprint on a vast judicial canvas that was perhaps uncharted landscape before he traversed it. Even after retirement he continued to write in a prolific manner commenting on issues in the public domain and espousing various causes. Generations of lawyers and public activists not only benefited from his scholarship but also internalised the mastery he had over the English language that could make any litterateur turn green with envy. He was passionate about a variety of public causes that ranged from the plight of street children to devoting his time and energy into a people’s enquiry into the communal violence that convulsed Gujarat in 2002.Born in 1915 at Thalassery in Kerala, he was witness to perhaps the most momentous century since the dawn of human civilisation. For any individual to be able to absorb the Teutonic changes of the past 100 years and still stay on the cutting edge of the ideational paradigm is perhaps the most articulate testimony of his intellectual capacity. In the hundredth year of his life he has moved over to a world beyond. Mourn we must the passing away of a true visionary, but celebrate also a life truly well lived.advertisement- Manish Tewari is a lawyer and a former Union minister.
