Gulf of Tonkin

The Gulf of Tonkin is a body of water located off the coast of northern Vietnam and southern China. It is a northern arm of the South China Sea; the Gulf is defined in the west by the northern coastline of Vietnam, in the north by China's Guangxi Province, to the east by China's Leizhou Peninsula and Hainan Island. The bay's Vietnamese and Chinese names – Vịnh Bắc Bộ and Běibù Wān – both mean "Northern Bay". Bắc Bộ is the native Vietnamese name of Tonkin; the name Tonkin, written "東京" in Hán-Nôm characters and Đông Kinh in the Vietnamese alphabet, means "eastern capital", is the former toponym for Hanoi, the present capital of Vietnam. It should not to be confused with Tokyo, written "東京" and means "eastern capital". During Vietnam's French colonial era, the northern region was called Tonkin. On 2 August 1964, United States President Lyndon B. Johnson falsely claimed that North Vietnamese forces had twice attacked American destroyers in the Gulf of Tonkin. Known today as the Gulf of Tonkin Incident, this event spawned the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution of 7 August 1964 leading to open war between North Vietnam and the United States.

It furthermore foreshadowed the major escalation of the Vietnam War in South Vietnam, which began with the landing of US regular combat troops at Da Nang in 1965. Geography of China Geography of Vietnam Tonkin Gulf Yacht Club Xinhua – "China to hold forum to boost Beibu Bay economic zone"

Michael Dudley

Michael John Dudley is a retired British judge. Michael Dudley was educated at Magdalen College School, Brackley, he studied law at Birmingham University and graduated with an LLB degree in 1968. After graduating, he lectured in law at Wednesbury College of Commerce and Technology for four years, he was called to the Bar by Lincoln's Inn in 1972. Dudley's first judicial position was as a Deputy Stipendiary Magistrate in 1985, he was appointed an Assistant Recorder in 1993 and a Recorder in 1999, before being appointed a Circuit Judge in 2003. He sat at Wolverhampton Crown Court for the last seven years of his judicial career. In 2010, when trying a case at Wolverhampton Crown Court, Dudley appeared to criticise the policy of Secretary of State for Justice Kenneth Clarke, who had launched a review of short sentences after declaring the prison population was too high, backed by Prime Minister David Cameron. Dudley told the defendant: Although there is talk at the moment about abolishing short sentences, you are a prime example of why we can't do it.

You keep going out - again - stealing from shops and stores in the area. In his retirement speech at Wolverhampton Crown Court, Dudley voiced his concerns for the future of the legal system due to government's austerity cuts. Dudley told his audience that: There are so many changes and they are all put at the door of the economic situation. I am concerned and speedily, it needs support because we must not lose the Criminal Bar and there is a serious risk of that happening. If we lose the Bar we lose the protection of the law. If people are not defended properly the prosecution can get sloppy. My biggest regret is, it is an insult to them. We want them to get involved in the judicial process, they have an important job to do but we are not able to feed them. That is unfortunate. We now have to send them away for food and if a jury is in retirement, considering their verdict, we lose one and a half hours; that means. Wolverhampton is such a small place that there is a huge danger of jurors bumping into witnesses or defendants while using the same facilities as them.

I would love to see that redressed. Dudley retired as a Circuit Judge in January 2015
