A state of loss: iLIVE
The government seems to have lost quite a few legal battles of late, the most notable being the Pilgrim's Rest case.
If officials had to cough up every time they went to court, they would quickly lose their appetite for litigation .
One has to question the quality of the government's in-house legal advisers.
Even a layman could see they were going to get a hiding in this case. Add to this the suspension challenges, police claims, contractor non-payments and the textbooks fiasco.
