This is an easy read guide for those who do not know very much about the law and how the law works. Such people are some times called “Graylings”.
What is the High Court?
The High Court is somewhere a bunch of people who no one voted for make decisions based on what Foreigners (or Europeans) think is best.
Someone who is accused of making a bad decision and goes to court is often called a Lord Chancellor.
An example of a bad decision is when the Lord Chancellor hides a load of info that he uses to make his bad decision.
This process is sometimes called Judicial Review but people in power often call it a right pain in the arse.
Before you go to court.
Make sure you spend a lot of time getting on the telly or the radio to tell everyone it is not your fault.
It is a very good idea to blame Foreigners.
If you cannot blame Foreigners, blame Immigrants.
Immigrants are also Foreigners but people are more scared of Immigrants and are more likely to vote UKIP unless you blame them for everything.
If it is really hard to blame Foreigners or Immigrants you can try to blame Left Wing Liberals.
At the same time as blaming someone else, make sure a friend from your College at Oxbridge writes something about a prisoner getting Legal Aid because his mattress is too hard.
Don’t worry if that’s not true.
When you get to the court
Make sure you pay lawyers a lot of money to do exactly what you say.
Pay them a lot of money to make sure you get a really good lawyer. Pay them a lot more than you pay Legal Aid lawyers.
At the same time make sure the other side cannot pay a lawyer at all.
This is called equality of arms.
You have two arms. They are allowed two arms.
Just make sure you have more lawyers.
Sometimes they will have lawyers who are doing the case pro bono. Pro bono means they are doing it for free.
If a lawyer does a case pro bono make sure someone who works for you sends your friend from Oxbridge the amount the lawyer received from Legal Aid last year.
Make sure this number is big by adding in the VAT.
If there is a hearing, who is who?
The person sitting at the front facing you is the Judge.
If the Judge finds you made a bad decision he is out of touch.
If the Judge finds you did not make a bad decision then give them the next Judge led inquiry.
The person who says you made a bad decision is a pressure group. Their lawyer is called a fat cat.
What happens at the hearing?
Keep repeating that the decision you made is policy and it is all about politics. Judges are allergic to politics.
Get some civil servants to give some made up facts and numbers. Call this evidence.
When the other side say what is really happening because of your decision, call this anecdotal.
If anecdotal does not work, also say the words self serving.
What happens if you lose?
A Judge may think what you did was as unreasonable as a small town just outside of Birmingham.
If you hear the word “Wednesbury” make sure it was someone else’s decision.
Then deny that the decision had ever been made.
Then make some minor changes.
Do what you always planned to do in any event.
What happens if you keep losing?
Complain about it a lot.
Change the rules to make it much more difficult for people to complain about your decisions.
Keep on repeating how what you are doing makes the rule of law stronger.
Ignore all the lawyers who say that stopping the weak complaining about the powerful is wrong.
Use the words fat cat, liberals and self interest again. And again.
Then throw a big expensive party, or Global Law Summit, to celebrate how strong you have made the rule of law.
Then laugh all they way on to the Board of various global businesses.
