re: Legal Aid.

The 3 MPs who went before court in April were defending themselves on Legal Aid (it was reported). They're all earning six-figures (Sterling).

That in itself caused some outrage, getting the taxpayer to fund their defence against charges of defrauding the taxpaper...

p.s. Judges. Private Eye has it in for Justice Eady. He seemingly gets half a page in every issue.

I have to agree the UK is a place where anything can happen. Justice Eady is a specialist in media hence the publicity.

It doesn't surprise me that MP's get the perks, before their constituents.

The government has robbed many legitimate people of their rights in the past, they are expert at it and are the biggest crooks of all! :roll:

They have systematically changed the welfare system from 1973 , to avoid paying the british their entitlements, they have obstacles in the way.

Some of the Appeal Court judgments that come down on Eady make 'interesting' reading! You see the restraint needed to almost not use 4 letter words on his judgments, because seemingly everything else gets thrown at him...


thank God for Private Eye, a little window-hole to sanity and reality from .... over here....

My cousin got arrested for shop theft. First offence.
He admitted to a bottle of perfume stolen from metro that was in his bag there and then. He could have gotten off with a warning I hope if its only that.
But the police found other items in his bag(which he stole from another shop in the same mall). He denied and said his friend gave them to him(afraid that they will charge him more & he thought he could get away because theres no price tag).
The police kept the other items and questioned him about that and he told them a story of lie regarding how they come about.

He is now out on bail.
Shouldnt he be better of telling the truth? Like turn himself in? Will they increase charges to him?
If they check the cctv of the entire mall they will be able to see which shops he step into or they could just check which shops in the mall that carry those items and check on the cctv right?

Yes

Yes
Will they increase charges to him?
If he admit charges will lesser but no amountable to accquital or lesser charge in the first offense under the penal code as he has committed a perjury to the officer of the law by lying which is a NO NO.

If they check the cctv of the entire mall they will be able to see which shops he step into or they could just check which shops in the mall that carry those items and check on the cctv right0?
Correct, he is dumb as this SG . All this info is easy to get hold to

I just bought a motorcycle a month back. In my office people used to park their motorcycles on the footpath pavement and I had seen them park that way for almost a year and no one ever was caught before.

My bad luck, the first day I took my bike to office and parked it there I got fined for 70$. I have now appealed and in my appeal, I have just apologized and have requested for waiver of the fine as it was the first time. Its now under investigation.

So is it possible that my fine can be increased? :?

Nah .. don't worry about it . If they turn your appeal just pay the fine within the stipulated time frame. This is parking offense under the town council not traffic offense
