    Default Legal Aid

    “Relatives of the 22 victims of the Manchester Arena terrorist attack who are applying for legal aid for representation at the forthcoming inquest are being made to fill in a 17-page questionnaire and declare whether they have any “valuable possessions” worth more than £500 that could be sold to help cover costs.

    Campaign groups have attacked the legal aid application process – which may still end in claims being rejected – as “cruel and intrusive”. They back calls for families whose loved ones are killed in terrorist attacks to automatically receive legal aid for inquests rather than be forced through the means-testing process.”

    Sick Tory Scum did not even have common sense to avoid such crazy requirements in serious cases like murder and especially terrorism.

    This is also true of the families of the victims of the westminster bridge terrorist attack. The government has unlimited funds, the victims family have to pay.

    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    It is almost impossible to get Legal Aid these days unless it's for criminal defence or to defend deportation. Yet the government get find billions to waste on Brexit. Truly shocking and the government should be ashamed.
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    Speak ill of the government as much as you want the majority of Brits vote for them.

    Sick government, sick society.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    You couldn't be more wrong! The majority of the Brits that vote, vote for the government, it's slightly different! And in the last elections not even that...
