Leave to Remove: Re H  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.

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.

How those Oxbridge types looked down on us.
In Memoriam - The Husband's Common Law Duty Of Maintenance
