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 kidnapped my flat and half-pension. They put me on the red list, and I have broken no law. Discriminate on ethnic grounds. They made dozens of violations of my human rights. Jeopardized my family the right to life. I wrote about ten pounds of appeals. These appeals were dismissed. Judicial and other decisions based on falsified evidence. I was ignorant party. They did not provide legal services. Daily press and TV are twice spoke about the violation of my human rights. Of pressure on me...

I won a dozen prestigious international awards for science.

I have recently won a decision from the Parliamentary Ombudsman against the Crown Prosecution Service. The report is damning, even given its limited remit of the Victims Code. The substance of my complaint however is the misconduct of the Prosecutor. This needs to be aired in court however I can't get legal aid and this is detrimental to all of us, as CPS employees are free to flout laws and ignore their duties knowing there is no available mechanism to challenge them. Any further erosion...

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!

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.
