Rumour has it that 150 mags courts will be closed, and a further 30% lopped off the legal aid budget.
To quote a phrase widely attributed to the abovementioned gentleman in the wake of the 9/11 news-burying fiasco;
"We're all fucked. I'm fucked. You're fucked. The whole department is fucked. It's the biggest cock-up ever, and we're all completely fucked".
For "department", read "legal aid system and the Magistrates' Court".
I would apologise for my language, but if you're more offended by a spot of anglo-saxon than the gross injustice that will inevitably result from such cuts, you need your head examining, and merit further such language, probably questioning your parentage and breeding.
