Nu Labour Robbing The Incapcitated
Only Nu Labour could set up a body call the 'The Court of Protection' then fleece the sick and their dependents blind.
The Court of Protection was set up by Justice Secretary Jack Straw to hear cases involving people who become unable to look after their own affairs through mental illness, accidents or dementia, but have not drawn up a "living will" nominating a relative or friend to take control of their assets.
In two years this parody of a title worthy of the 'Ministry of Truth' has seized control of £3.2 Billions of assets and charge the sick and ill £23 million in fees. What a fantastic scam. They are hardly going to complain are they ?
However the relatives are, 3000 complaints in two years
Posters on an internet forum have complained of "bullying" letters and "being treated like a criminal" after being deemed unsuitable to look after their relatives' affairs.
Children's author Heather Bateman told how she had to apply to the court for any spending over £500 - including her daughter's university fees - after an accident left her husband Michael, whose bank account was used to pay most of the family's bills, in a coma.
"The Court of Protection brought almost as much anger, grief and frustration into my life as the accident itself," Mrs Bateman told Saga magazine.
This is another of Jack Straw's Criminal Acts, the money is not the Government's you utter bastards.
Children do not belong to the State, the dying should not be helped on their way by the State's Pathway scheme, the assets of the sick do not belong to the State. It is bad enough that the assets of the intestate dead are seized by the Crown.
Is there nothing that is sacrosanct from the grasping hand of the State ?
