The dismantling of legal aid

Please read the following and take some action to try to preserve the rights of those accused by the State:

Criminal Solicitor - The price of everything and the value of nothing

The [Justice Gap] - Appalling Vistas where Francis FitzGibbon QC looks at government policy on  legal aid

David Allen Green in The New Statesman - How the Ministry of Justice's proposal for the tendering of criminal legal aid is misconceived and illiberal.

I never thought that I would see the day when a democratically elected British government was seeking to do this.  Please do not think this will affect only others.  Anyone of us could, one day, require a good lawyer to represent us.

Please sign this petition and get on to your MP.

The consultation paper is at Gov.uk - Ministry of Justice
