The government has been criticised for cutting the right of arrested suspects to advice from a qualified lawyer.

In a little-noticed change, from next February most people who are arrested and held in custody in England and Wales for minor offences will usually be denied the right to speak to a duty lawyer.

No smoke without fire. If you've been arrested you are clearly guilty and should stop wasting honest hardworking taxpayers (tm) money trying to get out of your due punishment. Allowing people to have legal advice is just political correctness gone mad - and we never had to do it before this nasty European human rights act was forced on us by those communists in Brussels.
