Golden Rule, Judicial College, Justice ministry, Law, Legal aid, McKenzie Friend, Working Group
This 55-page report was sent by Jeff Lampert of Help4LiPs.
Constituted by the Master of the Rolls, the Working Group was formed in December 2012 following the expected rise in the number of litigants in person (LiPs) after the Legal Aid reforms in April 2013.
The contents covers:
- Overview and executive summary
- Issues that arise when dealing with LiPs
- Training and guidance for the judiciary
- The rules
- McKenzie Friends and other lay assistants
- Vexatious litigants
- Conclusions and summary of recommendations
As always in these kinds of documents, the intentions are good and honourable:-
- Access to justice is the constitutional right of every citizen.
- The importance of a positive approach to litigants in person.
The question is: how will this ‘positive approach’ be implemented?
- It’s like with the Law. It doesn’t need changing. It just needs to be followed! More

Jimmy Savile, Police
Gang, Greater Manchester Police, Hillsborough, Law, Law Enforcement, Police, Robbery, United States
This book has 3 raving reviews so far. For it describes that and how the Hillsborough, Savile and ‘Plebgate’ investigations are NOT exceptions, but the symptom of
a culture of dishonesty, lies and often stupidity which has been accepted by the Government of the day, the judiciary and the public at large for many years
born so long ago, but allowed to fester and grow with the many examples and revelations which have continued until today with Hillsborough as only one shocking example.
So who are we with

Victims of white collar crimes come in all shades, colours and sizes – of amounts of damages, degrees of injustice and levels of cruelty. Once we’ve been hit or hurt, our challenges are a profound process of ‘waking up’ and being disillusioned:
- it’s NOT our fault – it’s the organisations covering up for themselves
- the ‘authorities’ do NOT deliver what they are supposed to
- most ombudsmen or other organisations of complaint are only there to fob us off.
What can we do?
- to learn NOT to give in or up, but stand our ground and fight for our rights
- to learn how to present our experience as a ‘case’: on paper, on video and in person
- to learn how to live with our pain and to communicate it – possibly turning it into passion… More

Theresa May, the Home Secretary in the Daily Mail - regarding the deportation of foreign criminals:
It is not for the judges to be legislators.
It is essential to democracy that the elected representatives of the people make the laws that govern this country – and not the judges. Yet some seem to believe they can ignore Parliament’s wishes.
… how to balance the foreigner’s right to family life against our nation’s right to protect itself…
… the central idea of our constitution which is that Parliament makes the law, and judges interpret what law is and make sure the executive complies with it.
… our democracy is subverted when judges decide to take on that role for themselves.
I need to write to her, asking about all those foreigners who are kept in prisons – apart from their children – after Local Councils managed to get judges to sanction what they are doing in secret family courts: take their children and hand them to foster carers, paedophiles or adoptive parents…
Who are the real criminals
- everybody who knows what’s dishonest with our money system but doesn’t change it?
- white collar criminals paid for working in public authorities, such as Police, IPCC, NHS who commit more crimes to cover up instead of apologising?
- judges who sanction what white collar criminals get up to?
Do note what Tom Watson MP writes about the 2 kinds of fraud victims have been observing for decades:
- fraud by false representation
- fraud by failing to disclose information.

Victims Unite has brought a few starfighters together who have studied the law, helped as McKenzie Friends and challenged antiquated rules such as the ban on recording court proceedings.
Here is the online petition Abolish the Ban on Recording Court Proceedings and here is a first collection of comments by signers.
Here are a few conclusions by victims who stand up for themselves:
UK Police Personnel should have Criminal Records Bureau Checks - an online petition that publishes a list of charged or convicted Prison, Police and Court Personnel (ca 1274)
The Law is only as good as the integrity of those entrusted to administrate it. – Maurice Kirk
A law breaker cannot also be a law enforcer. – Caul Grant
‘The Law’ in Britain (The Police & the Courts), deliberately deny me the protection of the law, & deliberately block me from seeking a remedy in the courts for crimes & other wrongs committed against me. That being so, & it IS fact, then that same ‘Law’ CANNOT be used to punish me. Indeed, both Police & Courts have themselves committed serious crimes against me, & do so with impunity.
Or in short:
- LAW ONE is to Protect the Powerful.
- LAW TWO is to Oppress those who are Not.
- LAW THREE is to destroy anyone who dares to protest. – Norman Scarth

Buckingham Palace, Corruption

It’s obviously time to write to Buckingham Palace again, even though it doesn’t seem to achieve anything at all – besides prompt responses, passing me on to Ministers who don’t communicate.
So I’m just soothing my conscience: I want to die, knowing that I’ve tried my best. I want HM to know what, just like in all the fairy tales of the world, Her Ministers won’t tell her. Because they don’t seem to have the ethics, morals and integrity necessary to be a ‘voice for the people’. At its best, they are, what my husband used to call a ‘mutual adoration society’. But, in reality, they are making civil abuse of royal privileges as enshrined in Royal Charters.
Since 2008 I’ve been writing as the Organiser of the Forum for Stable Currencies, after a human rights lawyer had advised us to ‘go for Parliamentary Scrutiny via the Treasury Select Committee‘. More
