Scales of Justice

Some figures in the news in recent days...

The British Government is to pay Sami al-Saadi £2.2 million for having helped send him to Gadaffi's Lybia.

The BBC paid Lord McAlpine £185,000 for indirectly implying that he was a paedophile.

The Metropolitan Police are paying £15,000 to a victim of child rape whose case they handled so badly that a judge labelled the investigation a "disgrace" (apparently they had decided that car crime was a greater priority). If she had taken them to court she could only have expected to win about £5,000...

...which is 2,160 time less than Rebekah Brooks received as a payoff from News International.
