Legal Aid Changes

Recommended Posts

Fivelive is reporting that Legal Aid is being changed so that anyone who has over £1,000 in equity in property will not get Legal Aid.

Stephen Nolan is going on about this now and how you can technically have 100K of equity in a house but be cash poor and not actually own the house.

"You can have a house or a lawyer but not both" commented his guest.

Hmm, sounds like a hard bit of legislation.

If people are all 'rich' because of 'wise' property investment, then they should be extracting that wealth to pay for services.

Can't go on forever having your cake and eating it too.

Have a read of today's Observer article about 'rich' Irish house 'owners' queuing up at the soup kitchen. Frightening.
