New Labour taking liberties -again
Posted by rantingkraut on April 19, 2006
This story from the BBC reports how the government is restricting compensation pay-outs following miscarriages of justice. On the one hand this goes naturally with a government which considers itself above the law. It is also to be expected from a regime which is committed to eroding due process guarantees (as discussed earlier here) and which seems to view the judicial process as little more than yet another social engineering project. Following changes in the law which virtually guarantee an increase in wrongful convictions it is a logical further step to make this institutionalisation of injustice fiscally sustainable.
