Lawyers Strike In the UK

Over cuts to Legal Aid funding.

Now, I don’t know enough about the situation to say for sure, but it certainly sounds like business as usual:  the most politically powerless will experience “austerity” first.  The only austerity the politically powerful will feel is less body weight when they literally lose their heads.  So in the interim, at least someone is making a fuss.  And it’s good to see lawyers assuming their proper role in the whole thing.

You would think we might have learned something, in the social sense, since the 18th century, but it appears we’re going down the same road the French did.
