Carte Blanche

I think the Road Accident Fund made a strategic mistake in not appearing on Carte Blanche with regard to the changes of the Act and the postponement tactics adopted at Court.  Unless you really have no answer at all, not saying anything is always going to be worse than any answer, however silly that answer may be.  They came across as an organization that simply don't care - and they don't care if people don't think they care.  The transcript of the show can be read here: http://www.mnet.co.za/Mnet/Shows/carteblanche/Story.asp?Id=3689

At last our (Attorneys) side of the story was told. I agree that the show was too short to cover the other problems with the Act. At least it is a start.

The interview is an absolute farce , Miss Direko is so obviously prejudiced against lawyers its shocking .How can you have a interview of this nature and not have somebody of the opposing view.No time whas left for qeustions!!!Mr Modise should be taken to task for some of the obvious lies that he spreads time and time again, for intance that lawyers take 50% on contingency!

I am listening to Jacob Modise on 702, and I am, once again, amazed by his idiotic statements and remarks.
"We want to pay, but the lawyers wont let us!"
He obviously cannot comprehend the legal system or the meaning of "sorry money".
And from his past interviews we all know that he does not understand the difference between party and party and attorney client fees, and he onbviously still doesn't!

Jacob was probably on the Golf course at the time of the Carte Blanche interviews!

The show was great as it highlighted some of the problems that claimants have against the RAF. Unfortunately the show was too short and needs several hours to discuss the shortcommings of the amendments to the Act as well how the RAF wastes money on matters which are capable of settlement.

It was nice that this time they got some of the other side into their story. Problem is there are so many other problems with the Act that were not covered?

The RAF will not want to comment. They have had to lie about the benefits of the new Act to pass it through parliament. Now that it is in place they no longer have to give interviews. They have got what they wanted. They have basically said now everyone can claim that could not claim before but the catch – remove all the benefits of claiming so in effect there is nothing to claim for.

Too little too late,although the RAF came off extremely badly I thought.The problem is most people don't believe it will ever affect them,or that they will ever be seriously injured in a MVA. Why didn't Carte blanche contact members of the RAF Board for comment one wonders, if Sir Jacob was ducking them.

NOT NEARLY ENOUGH DETAIL NOR WAS IT LONG ENOUGH. NEED REGULAR UPDATED FOLLOW UP PROGRAMS DRIVING HOME THE RISK THAT CITIZENS ARE FACING ON A DAILY BASIS, UNTIL THE LAW IS CHANGED

It was great to see Carte Blanche telling it the way it is. I just really feel this information should have come out before the amendments came into effect. The horse is long gone and many people are the worse off for it.
