Listening to lots of barristers talk about why they went on strike, it is evident that the Tories are telling lies again to public support. It is a two pronged attack, cuts and depriving people of legal aid Who wouldn’t be able to afford it otherwise.
The cuts to legal aid would force all legal people to take private rich clients thus ensuring that justice would always be weighed on the side of the rich – if it isn’t already. I hope the strike continues as it would be fantastic a bunch of lawyers vs the Govt, trying to stop government policy and tying them up in court.
I wonder what it’s like to be a Tory, waking up every day knowing more and more people hate you.
