Always a strategic thinker, Varah established close links with other agencies, particularly the police, with whom information was shared to prevent further offending. He consistently lobbied MPs and the Home Office, and at the same time was able to engage effectively and empathetically with offenders. Varah — pioneeringly — sent 32 serious offenders from Surrey on Community Service Orders to Romania to renovate a children’s hospital. Two years later, none of the 32 offenders had reoffended and nine (having completed their orders) had returned to work in Romania as volunteer plumbers, electricians and builders.
"School discipline is a major issue, as every parent knows. I am calling for more community police units to be brought into schools, so bullies know they cannot get away with it. I want greater powers for teachers to tackle bullying outside of school grounds, so bullies can't say 'you can't touch me'. And I want more restorative justice schemes, such as the one being piloted in Salford, whereby pupils themselves set the punishments for bullying and the victims can see justice is done."

"I’m actually not anti-social as such. I’d describe myself as raucous. It’s always useful to know exactly what you can get away with and my day job has been useful, on occasion, in my secret double life. I went to an illegal rave last summer and Environmental Health showed up and tried to seize the sound system. I was pretty trashed but I still managed to advise them that they had not served the correct statutory notice under Section 80 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, and that they were not taking anything without an order from a Magistrate. The hippies loved me."
