Last “gravy-train” to Clarkes-ville


This Government (like the last) continue to look like little boys trying to discipline their fathers as we all continue to feel the after-effects of the banking collapse. But, at least, they are picking fights that they can win (with their “little brothers”) by putting a stop to a practice that has added an increasing amount to claims settlements and, therefore, insurance costs

The government will announce plans for a major shake up of civil justice later today. Central to their proposals will be reform of so called “no win, no fee” agreements, which ministers say has led to spiralling legal costs. Muiris Lyons, president of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, and Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke, debate the proposal. http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_9439000/9439334.stm Read more of this post
