The Post Office Scandal Continues
On BBC Breakfast this morning one victim said that following the quashing of his conviction, he and his advisers put in a claim for compensation.
As he said, it was not some made up fanciful figure, but supported by documentary evidence of his demonstrable losses and reasonably expected compensation – the Post Office’s response was an offer of compensation less than 15% of what he requested.
Disgraceful behaviour by the Post Office (and the government).

No doubt in the not too distant future, Mr. Sunak will be announcing in the House of Commons that all victims of the Post Office scandal have been offered a fair and reasonable level of compensation.
It’s a shame we can’t take away everything he owns, put him in jail for 2 years (with a criminal record) and then 15 years later give him £1 million – and ask if he thinks that is fair and reasonable compensation.

Many have been vocal in that Fujitsu should pay a significant amount into the pot to compensate the victims – but if I were Fujitsu I’d be saying to the Post Office, you knew we were lying when we said the Horizon system was robust, but you when ahead with the prosecutions anyway – and you lied to the sub-post masters/mistresses claiming that each was the only one suffering Horizon issues, knowing full-well this was false.
If the Post Office had been honest in court, none of the scandal would have happened – we (Fujitsu) are not paying for your dishonesty.
I would quite happily see every SPM caught up in this compensated to the tune of, say, £5m.
Such is my palpable disgust I would happilly pay for the compensation through a tax rise. This is how disgusted I am because I would never ever suggest such a thing because (a) we are already over-taxed and (b) ALL Governments are inherently wasteful of money that doesn't belong to them.
