It is suggested that the BBC should compensate those abused by the broadcaster Stuart Hall. Let us be quite clear here; it is not the BBC that will be paying but the hapless License fee payers.
some years ago, parliament, probably at the behest of the money grabbing legal profession, passed legislation allowing the public to sue themselves and take public bodies, like the NHS and the Ministry of Defence to court. This is bad practice because it leads to innocent members of the public having to pay damages for the misdemeanours of others. Surely this is contrary to natural justice. But since when have the legal profession, the ambulance chasing brigade, allowed justice to interfere with their financial wellbeing. This law ought to be repealed.
