It seems that as soon as an asylum seekers case is rejected an appeal is lodged. The appeal lawyer is paid for by you the taxpayer. Surely the legal aid bill for this should be capped, after all his/her case has been heard by trained government officials. If I as a British citizen attempted to claim asylum in a non european country and had my claim rejected I would be placed on the next flight back to where I came from. I certainly would not be granted legal aid. Human rights lawyers are making an extremely good living from this situation.
