Politics.co.uk :Censored: Home Office refuses to publish cost of Theresa May's legal battles


'The Home Office is refusing to publish details of how much Theresa May has spent on legal battles, despite evidence the total sum runs up to several million pounds.

'Responding to a freedom of information request from campaign group Brit Cits, the Home Office claimed that calculating how much it spent on legal battles since 2010 would be "disproportionately" expensive.

'But the decision means the public has no access to clear information about how much May's various legal battles are costing the taxpayer, not just in terms of legal fees but also including compensation paid out after unsuccessful cases.

' "It's important that organisations are open and transparent, and expensive legal battles whose costs are hidden should concern taxpayers," TaxPayers' Alliance director John O'Connell commented...'

  1. Money spent with our taxes to keep genuine couples apart who are using up their life savings to try to be together. Scandalous waste! How many people who meet all the requirements and the visa is refused due to a clerical error but the Home Office fight all the way in the courts rather than admit they made a mistake. To what purpose!
