In the states anyone can sue for anything. Contingency attys make a living off this. Most often, even if you are right, it costs more to fight than settle. As I understand it in England, if u lose you pay the other sides fees.



That’s pretty much it.



On balance a good thing but maybe a little against ideas of equal access to law.


As a 19th C judge said, “The doors of British justice are open to all; just like the doors of the Ritz hotel”. 

I may prefer your model. Better lots of silly cases than no justice for the wronged.

I've been bemused by all these Tony Robinson threads. I had no idea who or what he was.

So I got google on him and the Wikipedia article seems to have a lot of objective info.

Based on that, I'd say the guy is quite the loser. He's constantly pushing the limits of the law and winds up serving time as a result. He was convicted of fraud on a mortgage application. The laws in Britain regarding reporting on trials are much more strict than they are here in the USA. But he breaks them anyway, and then when educated about the negative effects of his behavior, apologizes, serves his time, and then when he gets out he does it all over again.

A bit of an attention whore.

And yet... there really are problematic questions about some elements of Islam here.


I think he’s become more nuanced but is handicapped by his need to keep a certain profile and by his personal limitations.


A few more IQ points and he’d be a very useful player on the national stage.


Sadly he misses this and assists both militant Islamists and their apologists outside Islam.
