This is HUGE!

Well done David for forcing the UK Government to admit, in this letter from the Family Justice Division, the crimes they committed against the People.

The institution of the Family founded on Marriage is a moral institution. The Spouses are entitled to the State protecting their Family from attack by an act that is not moral, such as desertion/adultery/cruelty.

The UK Government decided not to save saveable Marriages! A saveable Marriage, by definition, is one where at least one of the Spouses [by definition the Deserted Spouse] wishes the other Spouse would reconcile their differences and end their desertion/adultery/cruelty and for the institution of their Family to persist.

Wow. Can anything be more treasonous than that and show more utter contempt for the People of the UK who have the legitimate expectation that the State will "guard with special care the institution of Marriage, on which the Family is founded, and to protect it against attack." as it says in the Iridsh Constitution.

The Government has NO authority to interfere with the implementation of legislation.

The only alternative policy available and the one that the "Government decided" [Labour Government under Blair] to implement is to abandon their duties to the Family, the fundamental unit group of Society and by so doing insist that every Spouse be treated equally as a deserter/adulterer or cruel.

They decided to use the legislation as if it were AMORAL i.e. non-judgementally!

Anyone who has been treated badly by the three organs of the State - the judiciary, the legislature and the executive/Government - since that time has a legitimate case to ignore any orders made that they do not agree with and to sue the State for the damage the Government did to their children and to them by usurping the authority of Parliament, the People's representatives.

The Family

Article 41

1. 1° The State recognises the Family as the natural primary and fundamental unit group of Society, and as a moral institution possessing inalienable and imprescriptible rights, antecedent and superior to all positive law.

2° The State, therefore, guarantees to protect the Family in its constitution and authority, as the necessary basis of social order and as indispensable to the welfare of the Nation and the State.

2. 1° In particular, the State recognises that by her life within the home, woman gives to the State a support without which the common good cannot be achieved.

2° The State shall, therefore, endeavour to ensure that mothers shall not be obliged by economic necessity to engage in labour to the neglect of their duties in the home.

3. 1° The State pledges itself to guard with special care the institution of Marriage, on which the Family is founded, and to protect it against attack.

Compulsion required for mediation to work, concludes Constitutional Affairs Committee

Family Law Week - 12th June 2006

The Constitutional Affairs select committee has published a short report on the progress of initiatives in the family courts. It follows a day of oral evidence on 2 May given by the President, Sir Mark Potter, with the help of Mr Justice Munby, District Judge Nicholas Crichton and Audrey Damazer from the Justices' Clerks Society.

The report tackles several issues including court transparency and funding but reserves some of the heaviest criticism for the Family Court Resolution pilot project branding it a 'failure' and urging some form of compulsion for both private and publicly funded couples.

The committee was pleased 'that there appears to be some movement on the issue of transparency' but also warned that funding difficulties were causing delay and hoped 'that the Department will facilitate the "cascading down" of cases to the Family Proceedings Courts, as suggested by the judiciary. To do this, it needs to provide sufficient legal advisers, ensure that any vacancies continue to be filled and remedy the lack of additional District Judges (Magistrates Court) working full time on family cases.'

The full text of the report can be found on the Parliament website

I wrote to Margaret Hodge to ask her why she believes voluntary mediation works after the Lord Chancellor stated on 16th January 2001- it did not, but Esporanca Harvey from the DCA Family Justice Division replied instead telling me that family mediation should not be confused with information meetings, So I rang Esporanca Harvey to ask her what happens at these information meetings if one parent simply dose not agree and she said that it dose not work.
