I hate lawyers. Well some of them anyway and so should you.

Agreeing with Ian Hislop?  Blimey – I didn’t expect that would ever happen, I am getting old 😦

I should say that I don’t hate all lawyers but there are a few types of lawyer that, frankly, the world could do without.  The first group are those who decide that they need to go into politics – 15% of all MPs were either barristers or solicitors.  This lot just need to go away now! Between them they’re responsible for the current Brexit mess we find ourselves in – and plenty of other messes as well!

This group is particularly irritating because they think they’re doing good when actually they are screwing things up for everybody except their rich friends!  Hateful, lying, toadies – the lot of them!!

The second group are those ambulance chasing Injury 4 You type of low-life shysters.  There is one TV advert that features a woman in a shopping centre who manages to slip and injure herself at the top of an escalator.  Hmmm if I remember correctly her view is obscured by a host of shopping bags she’s carrying.  I mean c’mon, really?  Are you suggesting that it’s the shopping centre’s fault?  That really does take the biscuit!

Here’s the google ad for one of these leeches:

Check how much you can claim? Clearly there’s nothing like the Hippocratic Oath that lawyers have to observe. Weasels – the lot of them.  How their advertising meets the ASA standards – Legal, DECENT, Honest Truthful – I just don’t know.  There are loads of these kind, peddling their services to the weak and the vulnerable – those desperate for money.  They’re one of the reasons that your and my insurance premium has been rising over the past few years – their behaviour is encouraging spurious claims and that results in higher policy prices.
What they do for you?  What they do is for themselves – not for you.  They aren’t charities they’re out for a quick buck.  Avoid them like the plague….  They’re so heinous that the law had to be changed to stop them profiteering..
The Civil Liability Bill has officially received Royal Asset today (December 20) marking a reform of the way England and Wales addresses whiplash claims and the framework around which the personal injury discount rate is set. Its aim is to reduce the “excessive” compensation claims impacting the NHS.
See I told you!!!
And now the third and final group that need to be eliminated – PPI claim insurance companies.

‘VULTURES’ Ambulance-chasing’ PPI lawyers slammed by car finance expert for now hounding mis-sold PCP deals

Banks face ‘shockwaves’ with up to £18bn in PPI payouts</<blockquote>
PPI has ‘turned portions of UK into fraudsters‘ – bank chief

Possibly the worst of the 3. And they are allowed to bombard us with their advertising, pleading with us not to miss out on up to £7k.  They really shouldn’t allow it – but they do – on TV, on the radio…it’s everywhere.  Even though there are people out there who deserve the support of good lawyers to get their money back there are standards that should be applied and followed – by all parties!

Martin Lewis, founder of the Money Saving Expert website, said banks had lied to customers that certain types of insurance were compulsory, yet no banker had been prosecuted over the issue.  He tweeted: ‘Bank’s [SIC] PPI selling was a systemic, deliberate, scripted, protection racket to missell £30bn+ of insurance. ‘

Lots of “No win no fee” claims out there but buyer beware.  Stories of claims companies wanting 40% of the payout are not unusual!  Like I said earlier – they aren’t in to help you – just to help themselves, and the worst thing about this is that as soon as this peak is over, we pass the deadline for claims, they’ll be gone, moving onto something else, some other group of people who think that a quick buck is their right.
These kinds of lawyers are simply not fit to bear the name lawyer.  They’re con men, disgusting low life who should be shunned by society – they’ve reached the level of disdain that we used to reserve for estate agents!!
