Dr Michael Siegel, an eminent German Jewish lawyer, bruised, barefoot, trousers ripped, marched down street by Nazi ‘brown-shirt’ police 10th March 1933.

The sign says ‘I am a Jew, but I will never again complain to the police’.

A ‘do-gooder’ lawyer.

Be under no illusion , when Priti Patel speaks of #DoGooders she means lawyers who will defend you ; she means international law that protects us ; she means Rule of Law .

Be very scared . When the #DoGooders are gone , there will be no one left to protect you .,
