Why McKenzie Friends have become more and more necessary…

Victims Unite!


This most remarkable report was derived from and ‘beautified’ for improved readability. It covers 250 pages and is too long to reproduce in its entirety. 

Other sections on the website include

Unfortunately, it looks as if the site was only maintained for a few years – without any contact. But with 1,264 cases, it paints a remarkably complete picture of all collar Crimes and institutionalised Corruption:

This section, and it is huge, looks at cases, dirty cops and what the Police do not like you to see about themselves.

Dafydd, I don’t Like This a Little

#Civil #Criminal or #Family – Roads to #Justice or #Courts for #Treason? @UKHomeOffice @MoJGovUK

Victims Unite!

The above video is one of the many exhibits that Dafydd Morgan put together as evidence for his experiences with Dyfed Powys Police and other ‘professionals’.

He wrote his 36-page report for Thames Valley Police, as they were involved in the HBOS Reading scandal. Based on his victim experiences as a Welsh farmer’s son and successful entrepreneur, Dafydd wanted to paint the bigger picture so that Thames Valley Police could appreciate their role in reversing current trends.

From my experience as web publisher and McKenzie Friend, this document is a most impressive collection of

  • the horrible experiences law abiding citizens have had to endure;
  • the incredible efforts that soo many activists and challengers of ‘the system’ have made;
  • the shocking extent of cover-ups, stitch-ups, fraud, crime and cruelty that employees of ‘the system’ are willing to go to – as they are ‘just doing their job’…

ALERT: #Whistleblower in Danger! Boots on Ground Needed @royalcourts

Victims Unite!

Victims and Survivors, Whistleblowers and Campaigners, Rescuers and McKenzie Friends, Public Interest Advocates and Social Media Activists, you all know whether:-

  • you or someone you know has suffered individual or institutional abuse;
  • you’ve suffered, because you tried to help;
  • you’ve become not just victimised and traumatised, but even criminalised;
  • you’ve been treated as a ‘criminal suspect’ [by Police] which is very different from being treated as a citizen with human rights who is ‘innocent until proven guilty’ [in Courts];
  • you were falsely accused, arrested and imprisoned;
  • your children were taken from you under false pretences, resulting in cover-ups and stitch-ups;
  • your parents were falsely put into ‘care’ homes, resulting in unbearable damages…

Invitation to Working Party on Apr 12 @BCS British Computer Society to Respond to Official Secrets Act

Victims Unite!

The British Computer Society is committed to making IT good for society!

In that spirit, the Specialist Law Group has organised a Working Party Event to respond to the Public Consultation into the Protection of Official Data aka the Official Secrets Act. In a way, technology has already taken the law unto itself by controlling access, publications and search algorithms. Hence the ethics, motivations and intentions behind public and private organisations and their online activities require more and more scrutiny, if not ‘community policing’.

Hence you are invited to make your contribution next Wednesday April 12th from 12.30 until 9pm in 5 Southampton Street in Covent Garden. You’ll be fed for free!

A first set of Points of Discussion were put together at the previous meeting, where Prof. Ormerod QC pointed us to this 32-page summary.

What we will debate are these 28 preliminary conclusions and questions.

McKenzie Friends Could Be Integrated Into Family Courts Under New Guidelines

Researching Reform

A newly published report looking at ways to protect vulnerable witnesses in private family law proceedings suggests closer collaboration between judges and McKenzie friends could offer a solution to the current problems.

The document, which was prepared by Family Law researchers at the Ministry of Justice, outlines several ways to protect vulnerable witnesses likely to be cross examined directly in court by their alleged abusers:

  • Making public funding available to provide the vulnerable party with an advocate
  • Greater support from judges, including relaying questions to the vulnerable witness on the alleged abuser’s behalf
  • Creating an inquisitorial system where judges are fully trained to deal with the issues involved
  • Strengthening links between the judiciary, the courts, and external organisations like McKenzie Friends and the Bar Pro Bono Unit
  • Producing a ‘Vulnerability’ assessment to best address the individual needs of each witness in a private family law case

The report also has some interesting…

Whom do you trust: solicitors, barristers, judges or #McKenzieFriends? @MoJGovUK

16-12-10-mck-friendsShould McKenzie Friends be more questionable and less trustworthy than solicitors, barristers and judges?

Especially when they work pro bono as we do?

It’s all about money, isn’t it: for he who pays the piper plays the tune! Does the legal profession care whether money in circulation adheres to the Bank of England Act 1694? Do they understand what is dishonest with our money system? Would a book on Capitalism and Morality make a difference?

Legal professionals are paid by Legal Aid or from private wealth. Whether they do or don’t achieve ‘justice’ seems to be a question of which barrister is better at the ping pong that judges observe before them.

I’m told that judgments are written before hearings and that barristers and judges agree them between each other.

It’s a game of nit-picking, without any holistic or systemic approach. It’s an opportunity for abusing power and position. It’s an invitation to commit fraud and malfeasance in public office.  Continue reading

From #AusterityJustice to Access to #ProsperityJustice? #HLEThinkTank @MoJGovUK @JoshuaRozenbergQC

The future of Legal Aid and Litigants in Person: can we Safeguard Access to Justice? was an excellent event chaired by Joshua Rozenberg and organised by the Halsbury Law Exchange last night 22.09.2016.

One of the four panellists was Steve Hynes, the author of “Austerity Justice”.

In the morning I was cheered up with “Go on, Love”, as my walking sticks took me to the tube.

“Carry on, Soldier”, I thought when I spoke with a retired Crown Prosecutor who used to work with Austin Mitchell MP on the Campaign for a National Legal Service (CNLS). On behalf of the Forum for Stable Currencies, Austin had submitted Early Day Motions to ensure Public Credit for Public Purposes from 2001 to 2011.

On the legal issue of the supposed ‘neutrality’ and ‘independence’ of the Judiciary:

  • who decides on its budget?
  • who finances court buildings, judges, court staff, prisons?
  • the money does not seem to come out of Governments budgets – but last night everybody seemed to assume that Government is responsible for the quality of the ‘justice system’.

On the financial power to control, maybe we need to go back to the Enforcement of the Bank of England Act 1694:

  • it made trading ‘financial products’ punishable – at three times the value of the trade!
