Leave to Remove: Re H [2010] EWCA Civ, 20 May 2010. Another of those sad, ‘When did You Next See Your Father?' cases. The ‘international relocation' canon has produced one of the most insoluble of the Predictability/Discretion/Welfare problems. Would it be of at least some help, if, when pre-maritally contracting about their money, these international couples were asked to think about their children's upbringing should they split?

Question Time, June 10: a celeb businesswoman whose answer to everything was ‘Privatise', apart from ‘Privatise the top few and burn the rest' which was her contribution to the question about universities. It turned out  that this oracle and I share an alma mater a 1960's former University College which a dumbing-down Government had so unwisely granted its own Charter shortly before I rolled up. How those Oxbridge types looked down on us.

In Memoriam - The Husband's Common Law Duty Of Maintenance

By EJ Sketch

So farewell then

The husband's common law duty of maintenance

You have been irrelevant since the statutory obligation to provide reasonable maintenance

And you were only ever capable of enforcement via the agency of necessity

Besides you were forfeit were she to commit adultery - irrespective of your own behaviour

But what finally did for you under s 198 of the Equality Act 2010 was your innate sexism
