Oh dear. Reply Link Hammurabi's magnificent elephant 4 January 2011 at 14:52 Why would anyone go for arbitration when half the world’s jurisdictions don’t uphold arbitration decisions? This is a vote of confidence for the English court system and English lawyers. Reply Link Anonymous 4 January 2011 at 15:06 Unfortunate headline maybe, but doubt it was intentional. When you look at the case list it really is something. No wonder the courts are worrying about having enough judges.

What other words are we banning? Presumably we can’t “wave” someone good bye at this time of the year. Likewise as a friend of mine once died in a car crash in December, I would like nobody to mention the word “car” in the months of November, December, January and February.
