Quick thoughts on yesterday's compensation hearing. This post also appeared on lawyerwatch.blog
With the lawyers at HSF charging the tax payer something like £500 an hour you would really hope that they "know what they are doing". I am pretty sure they are mainly focused on keeping the taxpayer funded, poorly managed, gravy train going for as long as possible.
The law- in my slight experience- rests heavily upon processual clarity and transparency to ensure prosecutorial effectiveness. But this emphasis on process can- as lawyers know- be used effectively to 'deform' both prosecution and defence to ends which perhaps participants had not foreseen. The question for me is not the motivation, but can it be cleaned up? Because it brings the lwa into disrepute, surely?
This was an email i sent to my lawyers yesterday

How many schemes do we need????Delay tactics in play once more! It is getting more transparent by the day that they are every part the problem and certainly NOT the solution. I have to Thankyou once again for your support and sound knowledge of this horror story as it continues.....
