Your British tax dollars at work

I can’t add anything to this that you haven’t already thought of yourselves:

A solicitor who specialises in representing terror suspects and tells them not to cooperate with police was paid almost £1 million in legal aid last year.

Muddassar Arani’s firm represented Abu Hamza, dirty bomb plotter Dhirin Barot and three of the 21/7 bombers in recent years.

She has raked in £3.5 million in taxpayer-funded support to help defend extremist suspects in recent years, according to new figures.

In the seven years documented in figures released under the Freedom of Information Act payments from the Legal Services Commission have almost quadrupled.

In one month alone – May last year – the firm billed almost £400,000 for legal services.

The 44-year-old mum of two once boasted in a magazine that those accused of terrorism come to her first.

    “Gentlemen — and I use that word loosely — I will testify for you.
    I’m a gun for hire, I’m a saint, I’m a liar.
    Because there are no facts. There is no truth. Just data to be manipulated.
    I can get you any result you like — what’s it worth to ya?
    Because there is no wrong, there is no right, and I sleep very well at night.
    No shame. No solution. No remorse. No retribution.
    Just people selling t-shirts.
    Just opportunity to participate in the pathetic little circus.
    And winning, winning, winning.”

    — Don Henley, “The Garden of Allah”

    There was a link here a while back regarding an effort to regain Great Britain’s lost sovereignty to the EUC.

    I wish I had saved it. If anyone knows what I mean, pls provide the link.

    We have our own “public defenders.” What I don’t get is a) why the British suspects need one — don’t they have their version of CAIR? and b) why they get to pick the lawyer they want — who specializes, apparently, in terrorists?

    It sounds like they get to hire “Johnny Cochran” and then charge the Public. Sweet!
