'The Times'

I remember when this paper was the essential read for lawyers. It has gone to the dogs.The opening section of the Law Report today is gibberish
.Yesterday, it ran a hot off the press Court of Appeal decision published on May 23rd. It managed to bury on page 16 the rather more important story that Times Newspapers Ltd had gone down for £180,000 in a libel action brought by Peter Cruddas.
The glaring omission is that the House of Commons rounded on some motor insurers whilst finding that claimant injury practitioners were decent.After devoting pages to the alleged crookery of solicitors and giving a big platform to  the ex -criminal barrister Jack Straw  to denounce injury lawyers , where is the detail of the Commons report?
