Criminal negligence

Over in the Devils Kitchen, DK is rightly leaping to support Tim Worstell's condemnation of Charles Clarke's announcement that compensation for those wrongfully convicted is to be cut.

Am I alone is seeing something more sinister in this? With the raft of draconian and dubious laws being passed now, from hunting through to terror, is the Government looking to cap its liabilities?

I mean, the way we are going we will all be jailed at some point.
