A claim to understanding

I congratulate Iain Murray on expressing so well the complex strata of rage that the blight of “blame and claim” engenders (MW June 5).

Murray touches on pretty well all its damaging facets – the legal profession being correctly pinned as the main culprit – which pander so precisely to the avaricious envy apparent in society.

I am reassured to see a particularly well-oiled journalistic lash applied to the back of this (hopefully) dying activity; I trust an uncomfortable sting will also be felt by the lawyers. Accidents do happen, whatever the career professionals would have us believe.

Power to Murray’s keyboard.
