  • Competition Lawyer! About as far removed from Criminal legal Aid as you can get.

    " Hey we need someone to head up a criminal legal aid review, someone who really knows the area"

    " We've got just the man..."

    Brilliant logic. If anyone needs a review into intellectual property, I'm your man, 30 years experience in crime should qualify me!

  • Anonymous at 1149; some people do actually need an income to survive. Lucky you if you don't. Where would you suggest I get an income from if I stop doing what I've done for 30 years? Like many of my defence colleagues I have no pension to fall back on. Clearly you are not a legal aid practitioner! Sadly we don't know your name.

    Jury trials on hold until courts can be made safe

  • What we need is for a Tory MP or his family to be accused of a criminal offence. They'll instruct the most expensive commercial firm ( I mean, what does a criminal defence solicitor know about crime?), Who will then instruct the most expensive Silk to obtain an acquittal. Oh dear the defence costs order of tuppence leaves them bankrupt!
