Man Dies During Visit By Bailiff

Recommended Posts

"The bailiff called at his house and said he had to make a payment, otherwise they would bring a delivery van and locksmith. He said they would get into the property and take goods and there was nothing he could do about it.

Scum!

Oh I look forward to when Bailiffs get more powers. Perhaps even a License to Kill. After all £60 is £60.

criminalising someone for a minor motoring offense is heavy handed government. It's very easily done by otherwise good people. grey areas and all that, instead of the black-and-white holier than thou narcisistic nutters in power.

Not a full story here, as usual. He was speeding on the M55 and obviously didn't pay the fine for it to go to court. He didn't appear because he was in hospital and the relatives say they wrote and told the court. Would magistrates enact collection by bailiff of they knew he was in hospital? ****-up somwhere, but why didn't he pay the fine after he got home?

This is one of those case where an enquiry IS needed.

More people are interested that Boy George got 15 months for false imprisonment though, its the most read story.

Yep, totally agree. This highlights potential problems with the existing system for collecting fines.

He'd spent 10 days in a coma after a stroke, it might have slipped his mind!

Fixed penalties are wrong.

There's nothing wrong with fixed penalties. Possibly there's something wrong in the way they are enforced - we don't know the full story yet. Someone has probably died from a heart attack while paying money into their bank before now.

Coercing those who have done nothing is wrong.

This guy was speeding. And?

Who was hurt?

Nobody.

Vehicles damaged?

None.

Well worth killing the poor old ******er over!

Ffs.

Yes but his relative were aware of the court case because they say they wrote to explain. did they all 'forget' as well?

With you all the way Injin.

There wasn't even a crime. Nobody injured, no criminal damage, no money stolen. It was extortion with menaces that killed him because he was frail.

There is a lot wrong with fixed penalties. Our forebears explained to the incoming king that fines could be imposed by courts only. It is in the Bill of Rights.

Calling a fine something else does not make it right. Were this old gent to have been prosecuted properly, the bench might have given him a ticking off. Fixed penalties do not allow such discretion.

Any counter-argument that the courts could not deal with the number of offenders is nonsense. There are too many laws, not too many offenders.

p-o-p

In other news the UK public roll over and allow their Government to grab even more money off them by deceiving the masses into thinking that speed is a killer and people court speeding are not being mugged of their hard earned money but evil members of public who kill and deserve to die for not paying their fines, even if you have been seriously ill and over 70.

****** speeding fines. If you looked into this dubious form of taking money from people, you would know that it is YET another way of conning the moral majority with spin, lies and mis-truths. Maybe if they gave advance driving lessons and people treated driving as not another chore that would reduce road fatalities, so stick your sheeple moralising and take Nulabia’s Publikspeak hook out of your mouth.
