David Cameron has ordered ministers to take action to clamp down on lawyers pursuing claims against veterans of the Iraq war.

 

Ministers on the national security council have been given the task of drawing up options to end “spurious claims”, including measures to curb the use of “no win, no fee” arrangements and the requirement that legal aid claimants must have lived in the UK for 12 months.

 

Law firms found to have abused the system could face tougher penalties under the measures being considered.

 

A No 10 source said: “The prime minister is deeply concerned at the large number of spurious claims being made against members of our armed forces.

The action by the prime minister comes just days after Fallon told MPs he was concerned about the “industrial scale” of claims against serving personnel and veterans.

 

The Iraq historic allegations team (Ihat) has sent documents to around 280 veterans telling them they were involved in an incident under investigation.

 

Established in 2010 by the Labour government in response to allegations of murder, abuse and torture of Iraqi citizens by British service personnel, the multimillion-pound inquiry is still looking at investigating cases linked to the six-year military mission, which came to an end in 2009.

 

Ihat’s workload reached 1,515 possible victims by September, of whom 280 are alleged to have been unlawfully killed.

 

 

So, set up by the very government that used underhand tactics to send these guys into a war that was none of our business !

Anything this clown utters is BS, especially when you see his lips moving.

 

MP's and politicians use us as a political football, I despise the DWP, but I actually despise these bunch of criminals even more!


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

No, it was a Labour government who sent us into Iraq and Afghanistan.

 

Leigh Day, one of the worst law firms involved in this, have given a good deal of money to the Labour Party, and also have a very close relationship with Emily Thornberry, the most ridiculous shadow Defence Sec imagineable, who has gone on record as saying she doesn't have a problem with it.

 

The other gang, Public Interest Lawyers, run by the odious Phil Shiner, also proclaim their socialist principles. They have such low morals, they make Lowell look like paragons of virtue.

Yes, I realise that it was the Labour Government that both sent our chaps to war and also set up the Inquiry.. that is why I highlighted it so people were aware that was what I was referring to.. sorry, it obviously wasn't clear :(

 

If there are going to be any charges brought against Soldiers doing what they were told to.. Blair and Bush should also have charges brought against them.
