Bloody tories..

Stories like this make me spit with rage. I don't know how grown supposedly educated adults can think this way.

I actually have some sympathy with the idea that too many compensation claims are made. If you have an accident, from which you recover, with the help of the NHS, and you still have your job (which you are still able to do) do you really need compensation?

To me its obvious - the way of cutting down claims under the Human Rights Act is perhaps to implement it, to invest this money in ensuring people's rights are met. I know there will always be the odd spurious claim but surely its better to have the odd spurious claim and all our rights protected than others left out?
