Many hundreds of thousands of people across the country are actively prevented by the legal system from pursuing claims that would be a thousand times more meritorious when considered on objective criteria. The real scandal of English legal system is the fact that English courts continue to remain outside the requirements of due process when it comes to parity of entitlements. Be it over who gets the grandly and unjustly termed “audience” in court and who is “given permission” to bring an action, the English legal system is riddled with illegalities. How significant is it that there is hardly any comment by the “concerned” professionals in practice about any of that! Equally telling is the centuries old failure of the “most distinguished” of academic law experts and specialists to examine this individualised and institutionalised injustice of the legal system. Access to justice! It is all an Act and hardly anything more than an “act” as a farce. The multifarious backwardness of the English legal system is the reason why Society remains unjust and why “class” persists with all the anti-social, unjust implications. And costs to lives.
