Legal Aid should be available to all, based on the individual’s, or group of individuals’, financial circumstances. Otherwise, only the wealthy have access to the legal system. The real problem is that changes in LA rules since 2010 have resulted in an unlevel playing field.

The question shouldn’t be, “Why is Shamima Begum being granted Legal Aid?”

The question should be, “Why weren’t the relatives of the Hillsborough victims, and the Grenfell Tower fire victims, entitled to Legal Aid?

Otherwise, it’s just another case of ‘Whataboutery’. And, no matter how perversely some people view these issues, two ‘wrongs’ still don’t make a ‘right’.
