  2. Nothing will come of this. It's a pointless shit-stirring exercise.
  3. What you meant to say is, "it's a good job Ken Clarke's secret justice Bill has almost made its way through the Lords".
  4. Well, I think pointless shit-stirring exercise was an excellent description of Ken Clarke's bill actually....

  5. Usual money making fishing trip,

    Intelligence sources can't be divulged and they know that, otherwise no one would ever come forward. So it gets bounced up the court chain whilst the lawyers make themselves a reputation and a load of cash, until maybe its heard in closed session.

    It's not a perfect world but this is the one we live in

    You may as well codify it in the law. Right now, we will just ensure that the case doesn't get heard. Twenty years ago, the press would have been prevented from reporting it and fifty years ago the american's would have had the guy killed. If secret justice means that cases can get heard then it's probably no bad thing.
  7. Why do I suspect that this Afghan man had never heard of SOCA until a legal team with an interpreter introduced them to the phrase 'Where there's blame, there's a claim' in Dari/Farsi/Pashto?
  8. You see no problem with three state-appointed lawyers deliberating in secret the contents of secret evidence?

    In my opinion that is not and never will be justice. Neither the claimant or his solicitor are even allowed to view the evidence, be it for or against them.

  9. I suppose concern from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen does make it international.

    Still this has got to be the first UK based firm of ambulance chasers to broaden their targetting to include UAVs:
