Phil Shiner gives lawyers a bad name

I see from Saturday’s Daily Mail that Phil Shiner’s cases against the British Army on behalf of Iraqi civilians have collapsed. What a waste of our taxpayers’ money, suing our brave troops who are having such a tough time in any event.

I sincerely hope Mr Shiner is not paid by the Legal Aid Board and, win or lose, this puts an end to these cases which only serve to give lawyers and our justice system a bad name.
