Gil Elliott’s 2011
None really. Lesley and I not only have each other to think about, but also our sons who are grieving for their sister. We will probably sell up at some stage, but at this stage, we are not sure where we’ll end up or what the future will hold.
That is a bit of a misnomer, because really nothing, although both of us will carry on with Sophie’s legacy, as we call it.
Lesley will continue to talk to year 13 girls (especially) about the dangers of abusive relationships and what to do about them. I will continue to deal with ‘‘anomalies’’ within the criminal justice system. The Minister of Justice, Simon Power, has already made a start on reform and I want to continue to offer ideas and encouragement to the Government with the help of the Sensible Sentencing Trust.
