  • Good grief!
    Hasn't this man, flattered as being of great intellect, done enough damage already? Who in their right mind would unleash the author of the Woolf reforms, which increased litigation costs exponentially, on anything more important than how to make a cup of tea?
    "greater efficiencies" in civil litigation???????????
    "Unfairly critical" of Lord Hutton? Another judge who apparently couldn't find his own a**e with both hands!
    Here's what Woolf should say about judicial inquiries-"don't use them except as an extreme last resort".

  • With all due respect, Judge-led inquiries at times even have trouble with collecting and determining the facts. They are selective in their evidence. The public think that because a Judge is heading an inquiry, all evidence relevant to it will be heard. That is not true.
    Lord Justice Leveson does not want my evidence about how I have been defamed and libeled by nearly every British newspaper and struggled to get justice and redress. I know of others who have had their evidence rejected. It is not a full Inquiry as the public have been led to believe.

  • Any inquiry with lawyers involved is going to take an age and cost a fortune. However, the alternative is a kangaroo court.
    The inquiry format in the UK is far from perfect, but it's a damn sight better than many others in the world.
