  • It is well recognised that a good efficient and non corrupt commercial legal system is essential for the proper running of a western style economy. The country as a whole benefits from such a system and not just the arguing protagonists. As such the running of the courts must remain a burden on the taxpayer as it is ultimately the taxpayer who benefits. Sadly it is well documented that our legal system is failing not through want of fees but by an unwillingness for courts to process matters in a timely fashion.
    I suggest that it is high time for there to be a separation of the courts functions leaving non commercially essential actions such as matrimonial personal injury immigration defamation and human rights actions to be run through one section of the courts and providing the business community with a legal system that is fit for purpose.
