FM Lord Bramall

While fining the taxpayer or forcing a reduction in capability by biting a hole out of the budget is absolutely barmy, there will be no way out of this until individual responsibility is vigorously pursued under the criminal law.
 
Absolutely. No doubt it goes on whatever passes for an OJAR for senior Plod but as you say it's the taxpayer that does the paying.

When people get compensation from the NHS I think there should be a cap of say 10 times what they paid - maybe 20 or 30 times - but definitely a cap. If they do t like it they can always use a different service.
Not unreasonable, but it does depend on what the costs are for the damage done. Lord Bramall will live as it's reputational and people know the truth. Met are lucky he's not suing otherwise it could be a six figure sum
 
Although it is our cash, Lord Bramall has probably shelled out his hard earned on defending himself against this accusation.

And should be recompensed.

Given the cost £100,000 should easily be recoverable from the individual coppers then that is what should be done.

Knock £100 off each months pay/pension until the full amount is paid off.

If they feel aggrieved they could always sue 'nick'.

Would a regular citizen get £100k if they had been subject to an unfortunate accusation such as this?

Lord Bramall has rendered a huge amount of service to the nation, but is this kind of payout simply because he is a public figure and not one of the plebs?

We may find out when the Met settles payment with Harvey Proctor.

Harvey, ex MP.
Same applies.
'Establishment'.
But how much did the family of Milly Dowler (sp?) get from the scumbag phone hackers? That is the yardstick to look at.
Two million I think, plus a charity donation from the Strine in charge. Unsure if they had anything from Plod/the public purse though, despite their full knowledge of the illegal phone tap.

I understand the point you're making but the FM's case was high profile and therefore the damage was worse because he is high profile. There is also an element of precident. A future victim can point uk his case and deman the same treatment.
 
Cliff is going after both plod AND the Beeb.
Again, your taxpayer's money...
That someone within the police and bbc willingly put at risk...

Why on earth the bbc authorised coverage of a raid on an INNOCENT* man's home is not immediately discernable.

It was a hellish risk, and even without hindsight, foolish.

That's before you get to common decency part.

Few news articles have immediately raised my eyebrows, not for the content but their sheer stupidity. One was the mirror's Iraq pictures (in the back of a clearly identifiable f*cking Bedford!). The other, the bbc showing plod turning up at cliff's house.

Piers Morgan resigned due to his foolishness. I await the bbc's response...


*alledged, suspected, accused, until proven guilty, all mean innocent.

Did he fcuk.
That morning at about 07:00 he gloated to the assembled Px mob that "If you think I'm losing my job because of this, you've got another think coming."

At approx 09:30 he was putting his kak into a box.
Unfortunately he had a golden handshake in his contract.

Whoever had such a groundbreaking idea that they'd employ a known mega twat and then offer them a huge payoff should they then fcukup so monumentally they should be fired needs a chainsaw enema.
Discussing the vile Piers rather besmirches the subject matter of the thread and C&A in general IMHO.
