  • Is this such a big story? The last time I checked, even looters (as much as I hate them) are entitled to a fair trial, and legal representation.

  • I think it's outrageous that solicitors should find themselves acting for suspected criminals. They should be struck off forthwith!

  • I heard that in Nottingham, the Johnson Partnership have special flyers to give to the rioters.
    Is this so bad?

  • Utterly, utterly crass. And handing out tips on covering up? What next, reminding rapists to wear condoms?

    Yes this is "so bad". I believe it is customary to fix up up a conference with yer brief after rather than prior to the commission of a crime. I suggest Bindmans champions of the "poor oppressed backberry toting anarchist" should publicy dissociate themselves.

    No, its not Bindmans handing out tips, its some blogger who also recommends Bindmans if they get caught.

  • There was a time when protestors were proud to be seen protesting for their cause. Now it's just a bunch of cowardly mommy's boys and girls who like to cause damage to everything for the sake if it... and then go screaming like a baby when the nasty policemen respond with force.
    All these tough guys should head over to Libya, Egypt or Syria and witness people fighting for a real cause. They'd last about 5 seconds (and they wouldn't even get a new pair of trainers out of it).

  • Jim, surely the money involved comes from flogging looted watches and phones down the pub? There must be something somewhere about being paid from the proceeds of crime...., or do these people qualify for Legal Aid?
