Well done to Ray Massey in today's Daily Mail.
In a nutshell: Thousands of middle-class motorists who challenge speeding fines face having to pay most of their legal costs even if they win their cases.
Reforms, which have been described as a 'stitch-up' aimed at excluding the middle classes, will limit the costs that can be claimed back by the drivers.
From October, the Ministry of Justice is cutting the current generous level of costs awarded to successful defendants to the lower rates used in legal aid cases.
It's all about the money! Zanu Newliebour prove once and for all that 'justice' in the UK does not extend to motorists - especially when they come up against the money machines that are speed cameras.
I have told everyone for years to contest their fines.
Then the authorities made it harder and doubled the fine if you dared to take them on.
That's not justice.
And with the number of mistakes being made this just underlines the police state we live in. This latest move from the 'Justice' Ministry is a disgrace and targets all but the rich. Gordon Brown - his election to oblivion can't come soon enough.
