UK Justice. Still the best you can afford.

Of course if you can't afford it you have to rely on legal aid.

Oops. Looks like that won't be an option either. Read here.

Maybe this is why our punishments are so pathetic. Pitiful fines unless you are rich enough to have a big car, few prison sentences unless you are in breach of a Government edict like paying council tax. Which the really poor don't have to pay so if you can afford it but don't pay then the full force of the law is on you. Fiddle to government out of money. Expect jail. Rob a few pensioners. Slap on the wrist.

No juries because we are too thick to understand complex cases. Jail for a month, soon to be three because cases need to be investigated and they are so complicated.

British Justice.
