It seems absurd that the present government should held liable for acts committed over 50 years ago. Will Leigh Day’s next claims be on behalf of the descendants of slaves? No doubt they’re looking forward to another £100m CFA bill, only this time to be picked up by the taxpayer.

What happens if the law says there is a time limit for a murderer to be brought to Justice. So, I kill today and go underground and 7 years from now I can say I cannot be punished because I was not prosecuted within the time limit that law allows? Hallo! The British Government should know better. A simple apology that you were wrong will heal the hearts of those elderly men and women that have a few years to live.
