Re: "reasonable excuse defence"

In my more depressed moments I wonder if the changes to legal aid were introduced as a deliberate disincentive to counter the risk of anti-austerity riots, but then I remember that these last nine years of Coalition/Tory governments have been from year to year so utterly hapless that the more probable explanation is cock-up rather than conspiracy. But once I get out of my depression I start to think more rationally and conclude that it's all been motivated by petty greed and callousness: cut the social safety net, cut the libraries, cut school funding and sod the harm it causes, just as long as it cuts my taxes.
