We are here because, despite the recurring fear and threats that we face when we meet these challenges, we have a spirit that fights and continues to campaign. The spirit of Neil Baxter who was amongst those who set the trail for the anti PCT campaigners of today lives on. Neil would have loved to have tweeted, lobbied and simply worked all hours to SaveUKjustice.

Walking along the high street in 2016 ...I am approached by a person wearing a high vis vest. I was intrigued to know what " Mind the Gap" was all about. I found out that many of their clients were not represented at court because they could not afford private representation and, because they were fortunate enough to be in (albeit poorly paid) employment, were not eligible for legal aid , but the vast majority were represented by lawyers who they met only once , were clearly under pressure by their employer and the court to progress the case at speed in order to keep cost to a minimum, did not have time to discus their case with them, did not scrutinise the evidence and often advised the innocent to plead guilty. The Prisons were full .

The government’s announcement of the accelerated timetable for the consultation and introduction of price competitive tendering has thrown the profession into a frenzy of panic and speculation: can they really meet this seemingly impossible timetable? What form of tendering will be proposed? Will the government listen? Will my business survive…?

The proposals in the recent paper on "transforming legal aid" will produce neither a credible nor efficient publicly funded criminal defence service. They demonstrate just how big a risk the government is willing to gamble when it comes to criminal justice.
