I think it all started here in the good old USA , as soon as something happens a line of work for free lawyers are right there briefcase in hand offering to retrieve millions from anyone that even breathed at the scene, factor in todays political correctness bull**** & the its not my fault I done something totally stupid & that's what we have , massive homeless encampment under the overhead train tracks here in Oakland actual structures made out of scrap wood old doors etc etc some all the way to the underside of the tracks, the other day one of them caught alight burned to the ground killed the guy inside dam near caught a train alight& stopped all trains for hours , but can the council go in & clear it out ? of course not they argue the tracks belong to bart ( the train operators ),therefore the land underneath is there problem, meanwhile the newly elected mayor already eying up her new campaign for the next job is on the tele outside the problem stating that they can't go in & clear it until they find alternative housing for the "residents" but for me to turn my old stable behind the garage into a guest cottage I need apply & pay for a permit, put up with city inspectors at every stage of the project & when its done the property then gets reappraised by the council because I,ve improved it & the property taxes increase accordingly ! if I decide to do it without a permit the city drone sees it they send out an inspector & it all comes to a halt , every day there is an incident of some sort in SF with cellphone pedestrians ,bike riders stupid people in general getting hurt because of their own stupidity & there's the lawyers ready & willing , as you said the world has gone mad , gets madder every day & poxy political correctness is out of control .RAY A in sf Disneyland
A true story of modern madness. Not litigation but political correctness: A few years ago, when working in the NHS community health team, I pitched up at a community centre and the manageress had that morning found a human finger on the doorstep. (Yep!) The police were called and they retrieved the finger and started their investigation. The police called the local hospitals to see if anyone had been admitted with a finger missing. One hospital said yes, a man had been admitted the previous evening with a finger amputated. The police asked for his name with a view to interviewing him. The hospital refused because of patient confidentiality. The hospital asked for the finger. The police refused as it was evidence. I **** you not......
My mate lost the business and his home due to shyster lawyers. He has so much additional restitution to pay he has money deducted from his salary for the rest of his life. That was 25+ years ago and he's still paying.
Stick one of these on everything!!
Damn, I'm gettin' me one of them 'No Stupid People' signs!
Maybe I'm just sick in the head.
Holy crap Stu! That's incredibly utter ****e!! What a disgrace and the 'claimant' must know his shyster lawyers have ruined someone's life for no good reason.
