How do they sleep?


Sir, I write regarding the case of 'wrongful dismissal' in which a painter was awarded £15,000 after being sacked when he was found working while off sick.

How can the 'no win, no fee' lawyer sleep at night? How can the law be used in so unfair a manner? The law in this case rewards the wrongful party.

The trouble with our country is that the legal profession has us in stranglehold. I despise them.
