Our soldiers - how to stop the legal gravy train

The scandal of our soldiers being hounded by tax payer funded blood sucking solicitors shows that the Brexit victory was - to quote Winston Churchill on the battle of El Alamein-

"This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end, but it is perhaps the end of the beginning."

So next steps please . First let's take the case of our soldiers.

In order to put a full stop to the nonsense of treating our soldiers like common criminals for the crime of putting their lives on the line in the service of their country we need to do one simple thing. Revoke the 2001 parliamentary bill which placed our Armed forces under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court.  It is the alleged fear that if the UK is not seen; " to be giving our troops hell"  then  we and our soldiers will be hauled up before this kangaroo court and to stop that happening we need to be seen to be energetically  investigating every complaint however spurious.

Well come on Mrs May the solution is obvious and cheap. Bring in an Act of Parliament revoking the 2001 Act and hey presto you will be a heroine to everyone apart from Guardian readers, the BBC and , I've almost forgotten, the Law society whose members are profiting obscenely from this scandal.

Come on Teresa. What's stopping you? and, come to think about it, if you can't bear to offend the chattering and legal classes over this issue it is surely one which UKIP under it's new leader should take up without delay.
