We can't have it both ways.It seems the story at the moment is Patricia Hewitt sticking the knife into Remedy UK. Read here.
Katy Newton at DKs is incensed. Read here. This has since been picked up by a few others.
Now the problem I have if this was not that bunch of useless politicians sticking the knife in a bunch of Doctors would we be bothered that costs are allocated. We continually moan about having the pick up the costs of people fighting officialdom on our money. People that we don't like such as the Muslim woman fighting her school about the headscarf.
We can't have it both ways. There are many people in jail because they were right but the law is not interested in justice only the law. In this instance and the case they chose to bring forward Remedy UK were wrong. Morally No, legally Yes. So the 'injured party' in law gets their costs paid. Not out of the public purse. Just as we wanted.
The best we can do is send them some money as suggested here at Aphra Behn. (Visit, even though they do have that annoying Snap pop up turned on) When you send the funds in you might consider a suggestion that they sack their legal team and get one that pick their fights with more care.
