    The Ministry of Justice aims to slash £300m from the £2.1bn legal aid bill.

    Under the plans, people will not be eligible for legal aid in a far broader range of civil cases than at present.

    The Law Society said the bill would hit the "weak and vulnerable", but Justice Secretary Ken Clarke said legal aid funded some unnecessary litigation.

    Guess what happens to societies which have two very different kinds of justice depending on how rich you are?

    Those who cannot afford justice very quickly come to realize that the law is a tool used against them and their interests and they are therefore, not beholden to it.

    That is not a formula for a civil society.

    But it is an excellent formula for a developing police state.

    Police states only last as long as they can instill fear in their victims.

    Eventually the excesses of a police state lead people to passive agression that makes society collapse due to a lack of popular support.
