You will not be able to take anyone to court unless you have plenty of money No good for people who want justice for a legitimate cause

Legal Aid so important for the less fortunate ones, financially. It's one of the basic human right for all citizens as without it there will be no hope for any form of justice & thus a hopless & bleak future.

Noted. Thanks, Cal. So glad to read that UK Uncut has been working hard and has plans to continue. There was a branch here in the U.S. that began soonafter the UK Uncut was underway. I joined them in protesting a local bank one Saturday, and took family members along. I heartily commend the protesters and wish them much good luck, and hope their numbers continue to grow.
