Personal Responsibility

Yesterday driving home I heard 8 ads on the radio all with no fee no win claims whether it was an injury or PPI.  We are battling in the House of Commons to keep the no fee no win for people who really do need it and who have had a crime committed against them and these so called law firms are destroying the good that came out of this because they are just interested in £ coins rather the interest of the clients or the real issues here. 

I believe if the police did their job and actually caught criminals, the CPS did their job and actually took the said criminals to courts then half these lawyer firms wouldn't have the time to be touting for people who have tripped over a neighbours front step and believe they are owed thousands of pounds, to courts hence leaving the fraud out of no win no fee for people who really need this.  Those cases they loose have to be paid for and that means the fee's from cases like ours go up and up, again the people who don't loose out are the lawyers.  I know we all have to make a living but if it wasn't for such stupid laws and lack of personal responsibility the Houses of Government won't be looking into the mess that these law firms have caused.  Mind saying that they have caused much of it by all these stupid Health and Safety laws and Politically Correct Crap they keep bringing out. 

Nevertheless  Us Mesothelionians weren't out to get this cancer, we didn't trip over, already have insurance but have been in a road accident, We were in a environment accident brought on by Unions and Governments alike who hid the truth about the damage asbestos could do and does do.  As usual its the little innocent person at the end of the row that looses out and those who are on the band wagon of 'I slipped and Fell'  no win no fee's have probably never taken any personal responsibility for anything as long as some one else foots the bill.

Feel better now that's off my chest. 

I thought you would enjoy this I did.....

A farmer named Bill was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in Scotland when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust.

The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie, leaned out the window and asked the farmer,

"If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?"

Bill looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, "Sure, why not?"

The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer, connects it to his Cingular RAZR V3 cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo. The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany.  Within seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses an MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, receives a response.  Finally, he prints out a full-colour, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet printer, turns to the farmer and says,

"You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves."

“That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves," says Bill.

He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on with amusement as the young man stuffs it into the boot of his car.  Then Bill says to the young man,

"Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?"  

The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, "Okay, why not?"

"You're a Member of the European Parliament", says Bill.

"Wow! That's correct," says the yuppie, "but how did you guess that?"

"No guessing required." answered the farmer. "You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You used millions of pounds worth of equipment trying to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a thing about how working people make a living - or about cows, for that matter. - This is a herd of sheep...”

“Now give me back my dog!”
