Let’s kill all the #lawyers: #judges #barristers and #solicitors? #Money at the root of judicial #evil? @MoJGovUK @UKHomeOffice

A plague on lawyers: STEPHEN GLOVER’s blisteringly provocative critique on the greed, self-importance and lack of scruples of Britain’s last unreformed vested interest group.

It couldn’t be clearer, this article: starting with Shakespeare’s “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers,” it makes very poignant points:

  1. the UK has more lawyers per head of population than any other country;
    1. their fees can run into millions of pounds;
    2. their fondness for money is matched by their sense of self-importance;
  2. the majority of judges think they’re under-appreciated and under-paid;
  3. individual cases of misconduct are quite horrendous;
    1. ‘ambulance chasers’ with ‘no win / no fee arrangements’ construct ‘fake cases’ or ‘competitive touting’;

The law is in many respects another country with its own sometimes impenetrable legal language, strange habits, arcane conventions, and, occasionally, unimaginable rewards. It is a world in which the leading lights — senior judges and highly paid QCs — take themselves very seriously indeed, sometimes complimenting one another on their allegedly enormous intellects in a self-regarding way, and assuming an easy, though hardly merited, sense of superiority over the rest of humanity.

A thorough inquiry into the legal profession would, in fact, be an excellent idea. The only trouble is that in modern Britain it would be headed by a judge.

    We need a brand new legal system, including the foundation and pillars. Problem is, once you have a system, no one wants to change it except the little people. I love the some of the technicalities that are employed, in substitution for where the law is silent. Ex: Employers can not make an employ responsible for paying for shortages in cash taken in. That is the law in Maine USA. But if an employer threatens to make anyone pay that comes up short, Its OK as long as they don’t act on it. now this is bluff and lying and not all people know the law.And it money was collect, how would anyone know. Employers are supposed to act in good faith. Is lying good faith. It threatening to violate the law OK. Evidently. But I were to threaten a politician, it would not be OK. now law should be consistent. If it is wrong in one area, it should wrong in the other areas, too. Good faith is essential but often not required. A society that allows lying and deceit is an evil society and can not have any claim to acting in good faith. So law, as it stands, encourages every sort of abuse. There is not way to corner them with law. Every law has an escape hatch. Every law is evil.

    The real problem in our society is that of wealth. It helped to sink Rome. It corrupts everything. Abuse becomes rampant. And collected wealth thru taxes or or massive production and marketing and distribution will seek out others doing the same and becoming exponentially more powerful and impossible to get around. The only solution is to live the farming life style, with modest technology created locally. that puts most on a even level. As soon as some become more affluent, they start to unbalance the scales of equity between members of a community. Jealousy grows in the have-nots and greed for ever more grows in those who already have more and are not content with that.

    Therefore, I think it will Take God to really and truly fix the problem, which is all of us, truth be told. We all need healing that only God can bring.

    Well Sabine, I never thought that I would see such a strongly worded article such as this one published in the mainstream media.

    I have tried to contribute twice in the ‘comments’ section with no joy as yet.

    What’s the point of publishing such an excellent article if they are not prepared to expand on it by publishing real life provable experiences.?

    King William & Mary handed justice and the law to judges & lawyers for a suitable
    fee and yearly donations ever since, this gives lawyers total control of
    the courts and the administration of justice you know ice the stuff that melts into
    water and then evaporates. Do not confuse with justice re: upholding the law, fair
    play etc. 35% of MPs are bent lawyers ask David Kidney and Lefroy of Stafford
    they have concealed serious police corruption who are in a conspiracy with the courts
    and Staffordborough Council. to steal John Challinors assets

    The UK has been Hi- Jacked in a Creeping coup by treasonous lawyers and freemasons,
    the lawyers need masons from many walks of life to givecredibility and funds to run
    the mafia

  5. Where there is a Monopoly there is nearly always a culture of greed and inefficiency .If any person could represent any other person provided they did not charge for their services;then. lawyers would be faced with competition from enthusiastic amateurs who would like magistrates have to be guided on points of law but who nevertheless would fight hard for their “client friends” and would not bankrupt anyone in the process.

  6. Graham FQ says:

    Government lawyers and judges use a process called closed material procedures. This is not law but relevant under the justice & security act 2015. It is used under a public interest imunity basis. It may be applied for under certain ways when dealing with alleged so called terrorism allegations. It can be used by lawyers if the material exposed could damage the public interest or more accurately the conduct or liability of a public body.

    The public do not realise that this CMP process is being used all the time by Courts and public bodies when cases are sought against them by the public. Its in direct contravention of S6 HRA 1998. The reason they use this process is be cuase it blocks any cross examination of the evidence which cannot be testified orally. This “on the papers” process is actually CMP. It does more as well. The government lawyer can corrupt the paper work without consent of the other party and they do not even have to give a substantive reason in their judgment. Because you send it all in the post to their office they make a “consideration” on the submission and do not have to identify any exhibit. It makes virtually all judgments in secret and all applied legislation VOID or incompible with the Convention. This CMP process is used by Government every where, but they keep it secret and give you misleading information when they publicise their procedures for investigating complaints.

    2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
    3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
    5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
    6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
    7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
    8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
    9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
    10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. {falsely: Gr. lying}
    12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

    Killed them all may be an easy way out, considering the harm and suffering they have caused, guillotine don’t seem to have worked, going by the French Revolution, the Spanish seem to have got it right, the Spanish garrote seems fitting, let them have a taste of what hell they put some innocent people through,

    The secrecy in the family courts lends itself to excessive abuse. Children are the chief sufferers and hiding their names make it impossible for decent people to complain. The excuse used for doing this is blatent hypocracy

    • Hypocrisy. That’s what gets me, too. Historically it was called ‘perfidious Albion’ already.

      • truth1 says:

        Both yours and John’s comment were tops. JFK did an entire speech to the press in April 61 just 3 months after his inauguration, all on the topic of secrecy and how “repugnant” it was to a demon-cracy. I do believe with all my heart that this speech is what put into motion, the plans to kill the duly elected president of the people. It was the conspiracy of all conspiracies. Bomb 911 and you stop little. Kill a president and you control all presidents after. And of course, secrecy is hypocrisy to law, to learning, to nearly anything in the fabric of our society.

  10. David2 says:

    This secret papers stuff is common in south wales especially in the family courts. Beware all ye who cross the Seern Bridge westawards in pursuit of open justice for ye shall be denied.

    • We always HOPE it’s greener in the neighbour’s garden. But it seems that as soon as you dig deeper, you just get another shock…

      At least that has been my learning curve.

      Some call it ‘waking up to reality’…

      • truth1 says:

        You nailed that one. I compare it to having your stomach feel queasy and you knew something was up and you were going to throw up sooner or late. 5 minutes, half an hour. You dreaded it yet you know you would not be able to stop it, either. and as a kid, its a scary experience to lose control of your body and want to breath but could not when heaving. and your head wanted to explode during the heave. Reality is such a bitter pill to swallow. You dread ti just like the vomiting you could feel coming. Your mind does have a sense of it and it becomes a war inside the mind. Accepting it is a victory and yet, it never feels good carrying that acceptance around because it is so black and bitter.and always with you. I would still prefer that to ignorance and denial.
