Excellent Meyrick, thank you, I was questioning the efficacy of the whole system which of course is rooted in confidence when I read this yesterday:


You make a good point about lawyers. IMHO they are the bane of our lives; parasites on the body politic. Tony Blair is a lawyer and took us to war on a lie but got a gong for it. Starmer is a lawyer and spent years at the peak of his profession in high office, yet achieved nothing.

Parliament has too many lawyers; At the 2015 general election, according to an analysis by BPP University, a private law school, 119 of 650 MPs were lawyers and it's grown since.
