Judicial sophistry or the art of lying

I was rather shocked when I was once told by a student of law that a prof had told him that, sometimes, in the profession one has to lie.

Evan Whitton, the Australian author of Our Corrupt Legal System: Why Everyone is a Victim [except Rich Criminals] now writes more about judges and sophistry, their art of lying, on this post’s excellent book review and associated comments.

    The crux of lying in the UK is in the Attorney General’s remit on jurisdictions.. he allowed Perjury and Lies in the Court to be the norm, in particular, when cases are against the Gov and hefty compensation against Gov Bodies like the NHS should be awarded.

    Police have been lying to courts for 30 years as a Judge stated in the case of Cinpres v Melea. When this happens everything then is allowed.. Defendants lie on evidence.. regulatory bodies allow lies.. Councils and MPs practice lies and Prime Ministers lie to People.. We go to war and squander our British Monies and Lives because of liers..

    Judges in Courts negate evidence and cross it off from the hearing transcripts.. Economists and Bankers lie about where the monies have been dissipated to.. If the top man (Attorney General) allows lies.. It is then permitted to anyone to practice it..!!

  2. Attorney General, Lord Chancellor, Minister of Justice, it seems that NONE of them make a positive difference.

    It’s a lot of thick layers of people ‘passing the buck’ and ‘fobbing the public off’, besided robbing them, it seems.

    Really sad and bad, if it wasn’t true…
