Common sense prevails

As previously discussed, the Minister of Plods has finally applied her much touted 'law of common sense' and directed Legal Services withdraw the invoice for legal aid received whilst enduring the inquest on the murder of her partner.

Obviously, there are votes to be had here and political expediency is the ultimate motivator for a morally bankrupt government on the ropes.

Seems those running KBB see it very differently in that only victims defined as poor should be eligible for legal aid and rich pricks should be billed forthwith.

I totally disagree. I firmly believe, irrespective of cost, any victim, regardless of net worth, should receive full legal aid without any question. Any other decision or implication is a total loss of common sense.

Yes, the damage has been done, this matter should have never arisen.
