Stupid and Counterproductive

There is an enquiry going on into alleged covert bugging of conversations between solicitors and their clients. If even some of the allegations are true there could be widespread consequences, up to and including the release of some very nasty criminals. I blogged about a similar case here.
What the hell was the matter with the people who set this up? They knew, or should have known, that such gross illegality as recording a legally privileged conversation between lawyer and client could only lead to the collapse of cases and the injustice of guilty and dangerous people being released, probably with a wodge of public money to help them along. Unbelievable.
