No Judges

This week, instead of  a blog we’ve something a little different.

Four months since our case was listed,

We had no judge, the court had missed it.

Counsel for the other side was cross

Three of his cases were a total loss.

Three in two weeks had not been heard,

“Its really getting quite absurd!”

(Read about it in his blog)

The clients spent a lot in costs

Their case adjourned, is this all lost?

It costs a lot if you pay twice,

It really isnt very nice.

They reformed our family justice system,

The High and County Court – you missed ‘em,

Before it worked, but cost a lot,

So they did something to make it stop.

 

What reform will be a flop?

Make people fed up and go away

And sort things out another way?

You go to court and get no judge,

Its just a wee bit hard to fudge.

Unless we pretend the courts are there

And sit our teddies on the judge’s chair.

Dont go to court, its too expensive

The cost of it should make you pensive.

You simply must use mediation;

If that doesnt work, then arbitration!

That takes the disputes out of court

And saves the cash George Osborne sought.

Theyre too busy saying its a success                    

To own up its an awful mess.
