I shall not be posting about the riots...

You can tell there hasn't been much family law news around recently, as many family law writers have turned their hand to commenting upon the riots. These include Lucy Reed at Pink Tape, Penny Booth and Kate Gomery at Family Law, 'familylawyer' at Confessions of a Family Lawyer, Dianne Benussi and even Judith Middleton (who usually keeps things a little more light-hearted). Follow the links to see what they have to say.

I, on the other hand, will NOT be posting anything here mentioning the riots...

  4. It's difficult to control your kids when you are unable to see them without being arrested. That needs to change.

  11. I did see a couple of parents of rioters spoken to by the media- they were fathers.
    Having blamed just about everyhting and anyone for the riots, Cameron has now turned his attention to the Human Rights Act. No doubt, those involved in the riots and looting had the provisions of that legislation in mind as they went on the rampage....
    Anyway, here is the link for another legal blog with an excellent commentary on Cameron's latest outburst of embarrassing drivel.
