According to the BBC, "victims' groups have said that Soham killer Ian Huntley "should not sue" over jail attack."
Campaigners have made an appeal to the paedophiliac child killer's better nature in an effort to ensure he does not receive compensation for the attack. Huntley is accused of perpetrating the vile 'no win, no fee' trade and critics argue that even a man like Huntley must see that by seeking compensation in this manner he is only encouraging the evil ambulance-chasing that is so blighting our society.
The Sun says...
This must be stopped. Those psychopathic lawyers are up to it again. Has Ian Huntley got no morals? We call on him to make a stand and nip this scourge in the bud. The next thing we know he will be claiming his prison breached "'elf and safety" and soon our prisons will be knife- and shank-free zones. In the US they have big prisons and are allowed endless supplies of knives, metal toothbrushes and homosexual rapes - why are we running a 3rd world penal system?
If any personal injury lawyer approaches my kids I swear I'll do time. Hanging's too good for them.

In my day, throat-slashing was all part of the risk of going to jail. These modern-day lags don't know they're born.

I think it is wrong to demonise the lawyers. It isn't their fault that the justice system wants to pay for their kids to go to Eton

Call this so-called justice? They should bring back the birch, or at least the firing squad.
