What Halsbury's "Laws" of England says about the British Constitution.

 

2. Civil Procedure Rules: The White Book (run Setup to install) (377Mb)

What does the White Book state as the "overriding objective" of Civil Procedures?

Rule 1.1 The overriding objective
 
(1) These Rules are a new procedural code with the overriding objective of enabling the court to deal with cases justly.
(2) Dealing with a case justly includes, so far as is practicable—
    (a) ensuring that the parties are on an equal footing;

You have DNA, and can be jailed. 'They' (generally) have no DNA, and can't be jailed. So how can anything ever be on an equal footing?

    (b) saving expense;

You betcha! 'Saving expense' by turning non-payment into a criminal offence, and then jailing a non-payer at the cost of around £3,500 per week 

    (c) dealing with the case in ways which are proportionate—
        (i) to the amount of money involved;
        (ii) to the importance of the case;
        (iii) to the complexity of the issues; and
        (iv) to the financial position of each party;
    (d) ensuring that it is dealt with expeditiously and fairly; and

You have DNA, and can be jailed. 'They' (generally) have no DNA, and can't be jailed. So how can anything ever be fair?

    (e) allotting to it an appropriate share of the court's resources, while taking into account the need to allot resources to other cases.

You betcha! 'Saving expense' by turning non-payment into a criminal offence, and then jailing a non-payer at the cost of around £3,500 per week That's the way to allot resources sensibly ...

... and it all goes downhill from there ...
