Is it the Government’s job to protect us from everything?

By johnboy 5 August 2009 24

The ABC is carrying calls by the ACT public advocate for the ACT Government to take responsibility for all the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune:

    ACT Public Advocate Anita Phillips has called for the Territory Government to introduce a no-fault insurance scheme.

    No-fault insurance provides medical treatment for people who have been seriously injured in accidents.

    Ms Phillips says at the moment injured people often have to resort to lengthy and costly court battles.

They already have this system in Victoria:

On the other hand, if these things worry you, you’re free to take out your own insurance.

Medical costs can be astronomical even with private health insurance.

They are talking about something like $20 per year per vehicle. That’s the cheapest insurance I’ve ever heard of for a system that benefits anybody who needs it.

Of course ex-judges come from the legal profession.

But with luck they are on a decent pension, and not concentrating on how much they can screw from the proceedings.

Justice could indeed be served.

We need to employ ex-judges, and avoid the legal profession.

Where do you think judges come from?
