Juvenal was a Roman poet from the late 1st century and early 2nd century AD. He wrote a collection of satirical poems known as the Satires. One satire included the line "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" which translates as "Who will guard the guards themselves?" or "Who will watch the watchmen?". Juvenal will watch the watchmen for Yorkshire Bylines, looking closely at the activities of our MPs, those who represent the good people of Yorkshire.
