So when is change due? When Google introduced Arnie to Wiki way back when, the wiki team did their best to pacify Arnie's outrage at the dual standards in Family Law. Wiki was going to introduce a rival to Resolution and Resolution itself were full of hope and optimism/marketing after re-branding from the Solicitors Family Law Association
Arnie's main focus were the dual standards that allowed a solicitor to fabricate his membership to Resolution, The law society Family panel and the UK College of Family mediators and also falsely clarified his law degree. Having tried harder than any man to get somekind of sanction, to this day Mr Blah
has received no sanction from any authority. In the wider context of the divorce he most certainly misdirected a court, for which I can get no investigation nor sanction. In the same divorce I was investigated under the proceeds of crime act for a minor conveyancing issue and I was fined £2000 by the courts for trying to keep my children together. That is complete double standard in terms of equality in law.
In 2004 I discovered that Mr Blah Blah's membership for the SFLA was false. In the law society investigation in that year, Mr Blah was allowed to subscribe to the Law Society Family Panel even though he had been claiming membership for over a year and half previously. I dont know whether The Law Society tipped him off or he managed to get lost in the bureaucracy, but the fact remains Solicitors Regulating Solicitors is not fair balanced. The fact that the Laws Society refused to take any action has prejudiced my legal recourse which is clearly not fair and balanced.
Resolution(SFLA) is a quality standard, it defines the ideal approach to matrimonial affiars, as do The Uk College of family mediators and the Law Society Family panel. Mr Blah Blah's advertised persona was that of a man of mediation, yet his actions were the inverse, the dual standard, to everyone else this is trading standards to solicitor it is false representation, yet he goes unpunished, despite my best efforts.
My family is destroyed and my career in the bin, So what is different in Family Law in 2009?
Arnie has started Court action and I will keep you posted because I will not accept these double standards.
Elie statistics yes, but I believe the situation is worse generally in the UK and in the family courts they are most likely as dysfunctional as previously, if not worse. The CORE of the problem is the legal class corrupted with arrogance and vanity. Regulated by a node and wink by their own. Baroness Scotland, is the highest law officer in the land and she is under investigation for breaking employment laws and for not taking a copy of Ms Tapui’s documents when she employed her – a breach of legislation that she had introduced. The Bar Standards Board, the barristers’ watchdog, will launch a formal inquiry after receiving complaints that she has brought the profession into disrepute.
Cant wait for the verdict on that one but it is distorted by glare of the national media, my guess is that nine times out of ten the legal profession look after their own, the mere fact you cant effectively complain about the other parties solicitor is not exactly fair and balanced.
Do you know every car owner in this country pays a higher insurance premium because SOLICITORS pay canvassers to solicit no win no fee accident claims, which are largely fraudulent claims, but the oh so ethically high minded people who are doing a difficult job in difficult circumstances feel obliged to make the money go round. Do you know copyright protectors are employing legal firms to scatter the population with copyright infringement notices and basically intimidating people into paying without any due process or right of appeal. They are even advocating disconnecting Internet connections without any due process.
Do you know that John Bolch still salivates at the latest Lady Blah Blah in divorce proceedings, yet for us mere motels, you cant find a helping hand for dust as they wiz off to McCartney versus McCartney or shoesmiths defence. He writes this nonsense because that is the content that his community want, the big financial return, the big fish, where precedents are set and we the proll, get the trickle down of this perverse justice. Al Fayed gets a bloody public inquiry on the basis of a fairy tail, but because he is rich, the ethically high minded legal class indulged his fantasy with glee and vigour, but the single mum in the council house gets scapegoated as an extravagance we cant afford, this is the crap we call British Justice.
I was struck by the legal class in Pakistan, who were recently fighting with their LIVES for democracy, where do you think your british solicitor would be if their lives were on the line, supporting the dictatorship is my guess and winging about difficult situations and difficult circumstances and my hourly rate is £500 per hour by the way
Solicitors need regulating and not by their own and politicians need to get real, because before too long, if some of these issues of inequality are not addressed, the proll could easily rise up with the stocks and the gallows and restore Justice and power back to the people. What we have at the moment is not fair and balanced, it is ALL about money with not one shred of concern about the damage they doing to countless families and homes up and down the country, and they wonder why we have a broken society.
In my divorce the legal class had £65,000, I got £47,000 and unemployed, and wifey got £200,000, you call that fair and balanced, well

you are in part correct, but my family is now part of the benefit culture you wish to target thanks to corruption in your family courts.... I once paid 40% tax.
To the honest part of the legal class: I am still waiting for some action on Mr Blah, the facts are the facts and he LIED and misdirected a court and I can prove it and I wont shut up until you do something about it.
In the absence of a forum hit counter I deduce from YT's 31 views that around 40 people have read the last post. and yet none have commented either in defence or support. This may well be, to quote one wiki member "it is all boring rubbish" or it maybe that it is indefensible. The legal talking heads can not defend a complaints procedure that sees a practicing divorce solicitor falsely represent himself in the PUBLIC domain for in excess of three years, and he has received no sanction whatsoever form any authority. I have documentary evidence to prove beyond any reasonable doubt that he was more than dishonest and willfully falsely represented himself in the public domain and in proceedings. And nothing, Four years of trying to get even a letter of sanction and absolutely NOTHING. That is not fair and balanced and does not constitute equality of treatment in law. \
Which court should this be heard in or are solicitors beyond reproach?
I am sure many people are enjoying our MPS squirm in the light of public scrutiny, I hope somehow to shed a bit of light onto the dishonest element in family law. Resolution is quality standard and more than just words, yet there are no checks on compliance or outcome. The Law Society and SRA don't seriously investigate complaints from other parties. Can a legal talking head explain to me how this quality system will ever improve standards with a framework like that. Can somebody name any other profession that successfully self regulates?
