JUDGE JANE... there is growth in the economy Henrik Ibsen a Norwegian playwright once said “home life especially as the IMF is “smiling” ceases to be free and beautiful as on them now. This is not a lie. soon as it is founded on borrowing However, the reasons they give and debt”. His plays written in the for growth are untrue and the middle of the 19th Century have security of our economy remains storylines that are timeless and one in jeopardy. The “growth” they are in particular called “An Enemy of talking about is fuelled by the the People” was made into a film in increased amount of 1978. The story is about a small borrowing taking place again town in Norway which, following a particularly in the property massive investment of local money market. Unrestrained credit availability caused the global into the building of a Spa is economic crash which has led to expecting a tourist explosion. the current state of near economic Shortly before the opening it is stagnation. A lending guarantee by revealed that a local tannery business has dumped its waste into government to prospective home the water source causing major owners and a rise in personal debt is not a positive thing and there has contamination. Predictably the story reveals how those who wish to been a warning from the latest Bank of England Governor that it profit from the situation are prepared to go to any lengths to will fuel another crisis. There is also the boomerang effect of austerity. achieve their goals including encouraging neighbour to attack The initial benefit it offered to those neighbour and families to war who make profits out of people on within. Pretty soon everyone is low wages which enables them to blaming the wrong people for the cut costs to the consumer via lower problem providing a distraction for overheads in production is coming to an end. There is only so long that the real culprits to use to their consumer items can be sold either advantage. almost at cost or at a loss. Where The lessons of history are not initially big businesses had lots of learned so most things don’t hoarded cash they would not invest change. For example those of us because the return was low – now the cash they had has dwindled as who have been watching the economic indicators are aware the their rush to encourage government is keen to brag that consumption has failed to return also. It is very important to


understand the degree of misrepresentation taking place about the economy if we are to be able to plan for our futures. It is doubtful things will begin to improve for some before 2020 and most will undergo enormous adjustments to lifestyle and expectations that will impact their whole life. I am of the opinion this was all entirely avoidable and I believe history will show that people with my view were correct to criticise what is happening. If we are to offer any hope to future generations we must learn to ask better questions and demand a better life for all.

‘Divorce doesn’t have to end up in a battle’ Divorce solicitors are often inundated in the early part of year with people who have decided that it is time to separate, but not everyone is looking for revenge. Many people are simply looking to end an unhappy marriage with a fair separation, without acrimony and as stress free as possible, whereby they can both agree what will happen to the kids, the house and the money – without going to court, and remaining on speaking terms if possible! Is that too much to ask? No it isn’t. Court is not the only route to getting a divorce and Graysons WE’s award winning family team can offer a range of alternatives that will suit anyone wanting to avoid the hostility and recriminations of the court room battle. Collaborative law is an increasingly popular way to approach family disputes in the UK. The process involves a couple signing an agreement that commits them to resolving their issues without going to court at 4-way meetings, where the couple work as a team with their independently chosen and specially trained collaborative lawyers, constructively

focusing on issues that are most important to them – typically this is children and finances. The process is client-led and tailored to meet their specific requirements, and solutions can be far more creative than in the restraints of the court room. Generally, the divorcing couple will take the lead in the discussions and the solicitors are there to support them. Sandra Russell, family partner at Graysons WE, is a trained collaborative solicitor who is well known in the region for her success in helping couples end their relationship in this positive, forward focused, collaborative way. Partner and head of the family department, Michelle Cooper, has a formidable reputation in the area, and further afield, for helping couples to settle their disputes via round table meetings, which, whilst similar to collaborative law, are not subject to the couple signing an agreement which prevents litigation. In round table meetings, an agenda is set which can lead to a divorce agreement without the need to see a judge. These meetings tend to be led by the lawyers, are generally more positional, yet can be as formal or relaxed as each couple want. If couples are committed to these non-litigious routes to resolving

family disputes, both can be less aggressive, less stressful, and often significantly cheaper than the more traditional contentious route, but the major benefit is on the family. Working in this way can reduce anger and the loss of self-esteem, which often occurs when relationships break down, and help to keep a level of friendship and dignity that can only be good for the divorcing couple and their family. So for those looking to continue their lives in control of their own, and their children’s, interests, whilst retaining some level of respect for their ex, Graysons WE can offer the most effective solution with its non-contentious routes to divorce. For more information, please contact Graysons WE’s family department on 01246 511695, We are one of the largest family teams in the region, with a wide range of expertise in all areas of family law, and high rate of client satisfaction in non-contentious divorce.

Robocop This remake of the 1987 film of the same name has been a long time coming after a series of delays and change of writers and directors. As they plan to reboot the entire series of films, fans of the original won’t have to worry about a change in plot. Set in the year 2028, multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of all robot technology. Overseas, their robots have been used for years by foreign militaries, making the company billions. Now they want to bring their technology home and they see the perfect opportunity to test it out when a corruption fighting Detroit policeman Alex Murphy (The Killing's Joel Kinnaman) is

They envision a RoboCop in every city and thus more money for them and their shareholders. But what they fail to realise is that there is still a man inside the machine, pursuing justice. On the outside it looks like it is more of a reboot than a remake, keeping the formula that proved popular in the 80’s classic. The design of the RoboCop is the same, albeit slightly modernised and the famous one-liner ‘Dead or alive, you’re coming with me’.

February Gardening weather allows, carry on clearing paths, check walls (but avoid concreting until there is no chance of frost), clean and insulate greenhouses and ensure heaters are working properly. Even a little insulation will make a huge difference to your heating. Continue to plan your veg and flower gardens making sure you position the tallest where they will not shade out others. Plant bare-rooted shrubs and trees and container-grown climbers.
