A Great New Comedy Called Justice

As you read the headline I guess many will think it’s a new TV comedy series called Justice. Well to tell you the truth, what I read yesterday would make a good series. People have been lamenting the fall of the UK justice system for a good many years, in fact, ever since Tony Blair made it into a joke, and believe me, it is getting worse by the day.

The Face Of A Killer

The Face Of A Killer

Yesterday I was astounded to read that a convicted serial killer has been awarded compensation against HM Prison Service for not adequately protecting him from fellow inmates. I write of Levi Bellfield who was sentenced to two life terms for the murder of four young women, including Milly Dowler. It would seem he was set upon by a fellow prisoner with a make-shift weapon and received minor injuries, namely a small cut to the face and bruising. What a shame they did not finish him off.

This happened in Wakefield Prison in 2010 while he was waiting for his second trial for the murder if Milly Dowler. He immediately sued the prison for up to £30,000 for failing in their duty to protect him. In a recent court ruling the judge granted his plea and awarded him £4,500 in compensation. In many people’s view the judge himself should be locked up beside him and then they can play cards together. It has not been revealed what precedent was used by the judge to grant his compensation, but the whole episode stinks to high heaven.

The case had been fought by lawyers representing the Ministry of Justice for three years, and after the hearing on Wednesday when the judgement was read, a ministry spokesman said, “We are hugely disappointed that Levi Bellfield was awarded £4,500 by a judge following an assault by a prisoner in 2009 at HMP Wakefield.”

It beggars believe that a convicted murderer can play the system in such a way and get away with it. I can well imagine that if he cut his finger with a plastic knife while eating lunch he would sue because the prison authorities did not warn him the knife was sharp. Just how far down this ridiculous road are we expected to go before some politician wakes up and puts a stop to this nonsense?

That’s all you hear these days, human rights, equality, compensation and all the rest of that bunkum. Its time for it all to stop and we get back to a right and proper justice system. Yet another reason for Britain to crawl out from under the suffocating yoke of the EU system of Justice, for it has become a laughing stock.

Time to Start Shooting Compensation Tribunals!

Posted in Britain, Insanity, Modern World, UK, World War 2 with tags , , , , , , on 15/04/2010 by floroy1942

Remember the old adage “Cheats Never Prosper”, well, that was before someone invented Compensation Tribunals! A couple of days ago I gave my thoughts on the case of Tilern DeBique (Sorry! Can’t go to War Today I Must Feed My Baby 13/4/2010) But today more amazing revelations came to light. Miss DeBique is claiming compensation from the army to the tune of £1,140,000 for sex discrimination over army childcare. This amount is for loss of earnings, loss of army benefits, loss of pension rights, aggravated damages, and £18,000 for ‘hurt feelings’!

Parasite

The amount she could receive has been described as ‘indecent’ and ‘perverse’ by officials, but I say ‘plain lunacy’ would be more like it. The Board will inform her tomorrow of the exact amount she will receive. I hope it is one penny, and even that would be too much.

All this despite the army offering her a posting with childcare, which she declined because ‘she only had four days to decide’, and because she applied for a lucrative civilian job in Afghanistan.

The most shocking thing about the whole affair is that a Para who received 37 different injuries, including losing both legs and brain damage from a land-mine, was awarded a ridiculous £152,150 compensation! After a huge outcry from the public this was increased to £570,000 with much grinding of teeth at the M.O.D.

In a similar comparison, an M.O.D office worker who strained his back lifting a printer received £207,000, but Sergeant Stephens received only £209,000 initially for multiple severe shrapnel injuries he got during a mortar attack by militants in Iraq. This was eventually increased to £317,715 when new rules came into force. An RAF typist laughed all the way to the bank with her £484,000 pay-out because she injured her thumb typing. She ‘developed’ repetitive strain injury and could not work anymore! That much for a thumb? The mind boggles!

It just goes to show how rotten and disgusting this whole ‘compensation’ scheme has become. For some people it is now a way of life, and the sad part about it is, they get away with it because these ‘Bleeding Heart’ Compensation Boards can’t wait to give other people’s money away to these ‘poor unfortunates’.

Ill-Gotten Gains

Miss DeBique and her family must think Christmas has come early, for with her credentials she wouldn’t make the amount of money she is claiming in her entire life! And on the other side of the fence are our soldiers returning from a war zone, many with horrific injuries, and they are getting peanuts by comparison.

While I don’t begrudge the injured soldiers their pay-outs, I have to wonder what all our soldiers who fought in two world wars would have to say about the compensation scheme employed and misused by so many today. They went to war to defend our nation and never had the opportunity of compensation. When they came home after the war they got nothing, not even sympathy, and many couldn’t even get a job such was the thanks of a ‘grateful nation’.

We have without doubt become a sorry excuse for humanity.

Update:

Well, one may assume there is maybe one small shred of justice still left in the UK after Miss DeBique was awarded just £17,016 today by the Tribunal. If she dreamed of living in a mansion and driving a Ferrari on her home island of St. Vincent, then thankfully she can forget it!

She was criticised by the Board for not taking the alternate posting with child-care offered her by the army, and for not trying hard enough to find work after she left. I guess she will have to find some other way of scamming the rest of us into giving her the lifestyle she wants.

Maybe now the M.O.D will take a closer look at the advisability of having unmarried mothers in the army. Lets hope so, for if not this may be the pattern of things to come.

As for my title of shooting Compensation Board members, perhaps it will be sufficient if we just wound them……slightly!
