Legal Aid gives you the opportunity to exercise your rights without going deep into depression of the unknown. Why scrap it? it's for the public, please give voice to those who genuinely needs it, those whose life will be in tatters if there is no Legal Aids!
They have to get their priorities right.It's the public's money,spend it for public use!
We the rock'n'roll band The Sunsets were able to successfully sue. Our former leader Shakin'Stevens. For group royaties he claimed were all his.We were stil cheated. But without Legal Aid we would have lost everything.
In 1987 had a back operation that almost killed me and was given mouth to mouth by a good staff nure by the name of jan.
iwas told i had a shock due to the drug that was administered the real truth i found out 15 years later was that i had been given far to much morphine the hospital kept that from me i was still suffering and still have problems today 25yrs on and had to leave my job and take early retirement with almost no compensation so i had no chance of being represented
Without legal aid we are unable to defend ourselves in matters concerning the law which is grossly unfair. Advice, support and representation for civil issues affecting our independant day to day lives are crucial! Criminal get a better deal than Non-Criminals! Reinstate Legal Aid and give the public a chance!

my daughter had legal aid for a familily problem she has 4 young children.now legal aid has been stopped solicitors want £180.00 an hour she cannot afford.legal aid should be available for low icome people.
We the public need legal aid to fight our corner , for whatever reason. How else will the rights and wrong of the laws and justice prevale.
I applied for civil legal aid in Scotland to take legal action against someone who abducted my dog. Legal aid was refused because they considered it a 'waste of time to use public funds' on a dog! Now I'm having to conduct my own case myself...
As far as I can remember, I have known of the availability of Legal Aid. It is imperative that the availability remains since many may not be able to afford costs to pursue specific legal cases. I give consideration to individuals like the retired elderly, unsupported singles, those who experience various forms of discrimination etc.
