Topic: Serious Discussion / Anyone got experience with wills and probate (uk law)?

Originally posted by donseptico:

Ok, long version cut short, my brother’s landlady has recently died and had originally willed the property to him and his wife (in light of the amount of work he did on it at her behest) but changed her will ‘at the last minute’ when staying away with her family.

Obviously, it’s her right to leave it to whomever, but…

a) where would he stand making a claim against the estate for ongoing japanese knowteed management, etc?

b) what, if anything, can he do about his new landlord wanting to raise his rent contrary to the stated wishes of the decedent.

(obviously I’ve told him to get proper legal advice – but that’s easier said than done for multiple reasons, not least of which being money… so if anyone has experience in this area?

I will tell you from my ACCA Book
There is one thing called past consideration in contract law and it is also applicable on wills and death estate as far as I can tell.
Basically, if you do something with out any promise of payment in advance, a promise made after the deed is done is un enforceable.
The closest case study I could find online was this:



Re McArdle (1951) Ch 669 Court of Appeal

Majorie McArdle carried out certain improvements and repairs on a bungalow. The bungalow formed part of the estate of her husband’s father who had died leaving the property to his wife for life and then on trust for Majorie’s husband and his four siblings. After the work had been carried out the brothers and sisters signed a document stating in consideration of you carrying out the repairs we agree that the executors pay you £480 from the proceeds of sale. However, the payment was never made.

Held:

The promise to make payment came after the consideration had been performed therefore the promise to make payment was not binding. Past consideration is not valid
.

Basically, unless you have a proof that she agreed before hand about this property transfer, you are as you pale buggers say “Shite out of luck mate.”

Just my two cents.

They have hung and executed people since the beginning of time in Pakistan and many other countries. Yet, people STILL commit crimes that have the death penalty applied to them. History has proven a death sentence does not deter crime. If it did, people would not do the crimes anymore, yet they do. Don’t you think it’s time for society to realize it does not work, and actually focus on the real problem so people won’t feel the need to commit the crimes in the first place? People who are given fair chances to get ahead and given every help in the world to succeed and be happy typical do not commit crimes.

There is a breed of people whom death scares not, so they will do as they please and they are the ones who truly deserve
the CP. They are the majority of people commiting capital crime in Pro-CP countries.

What do you gain from a public execution?

Digressing slightly, I would be interested to find out where apostasy fits into your heirarchy of demonology. Do non-believers deserve to be executed too, as many Islamic scholars seem to think?

Peace of mind that my death will be avenged and as such there will be far less people inclined to kill me because of that.

No, I don’t think “infidels” deserve to die just because they are infidels.
Any one who thinks so is going against the way of Islam. After all, there were Jews in Medina too, right until they plotted against holy prophet.

There’s a lot of stuff going on in your post.

To summarize:
• Torture results in misinformation
• Torture spreads fear
• There’s stuff we don’t know
• Americans don’t like torture

Yup. That pretty much sums it my thoughts too!

I was hoping you were going to share your thoughts on the legality of enhanced interrogation techniques (EITs), even though it’s not a very interesting topic. The legality of an action, of course, rarely reflects the morality of that action. There are things people generally find immoral that are legal and vice versa.

What I find interesting is that we might—as a people—justify the use of EITs against enemy combatants, but then wouldn’t this imply that we would accept the use of those same techniques against American soldiers as a legal and reasonable part of warfare?

Its Legality s irrelevant to me. What I’m more interested is, will the americans still make a martyr of their soldiers who will be tortured in enemy custody?

We are not in times ancient anymore mate, gone are the times when you could torture a man for a week and find out whereabouts of his comrades. Insurgents have grown smarter to this. By the time you get the info, it will already be too late.
Also, torture is a far better terror spreading technique than an intel gathering.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Torture, Its Legality and its effectiveness,

As you all might know, The US Senate has released a report on the use of torture by CIA in their “WAR Against Terrorism”. It Summarizes some of the techniques used by them and also its also its effectiveness in extracting information(It sucks at that). If Applied against an innocent man, it will extract false confessions. If applied against a trained and determined adversary, it will lead to misleading info. Even if an enemy has been “cracked” it might be too late.

Personally, I think torture can not extract reliable Intel but it is a damn good tool to spread fear and terror in the enemy and it should be used as such.

There is also another side of the story, that being, the facts, released in the report are not complete and might just be the tip of the iceberg, god knows how deep in mud your Intel community is.

What amuses me about you western as a whole and American in particular is the kind of surprise you show, when it is found that your gorvn. is spying on you or your govrn. tortures.(Both of these things have been common knowledge for us third worlders) May be it is because you trust your govrn. too much or you are a hypocritical lot.

So, What are your thoughts about this whole fiasco.

The first sentence might be a response to my post; however, it is so disjointed from it that I’m not at all able to grasp how it applies.


My guess is that it also was intended as a response to gungho’s assessment of YOU being a “me generation” person. But, I will comment on it anyway. Just because you do those thing doesn’t mean that you can’t have a sense of “entitlement” in other areas. Or, that such sense can’t be inappropriately excessive.


It was a reply to you both
Then, by all means available to ya, justify why it was a reply to me.
All I did was make a clarification/distinction of what gungho’s post was about.

YOU confused country w/ govt.


If you are all that touchy about someone helping ya;
don’t bother to make a reply.
Like YOU said: actions speak louder than words.


I am being touchY?
No Sir, it is you and you alone who trying to find something negative here.
Something to bash me for.
He mad A comment You clarified it.
It was nothing but appropriate to keep both of you in my reply.

Personally? No problem with it. In terms of the future of the country? We have a BIG problem with that.

Let me quote one of the top 5 Presidents in history in regards to this, and I will let his words speak volumes and I will add nothing more to this discussion:

“My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

John F. Kennedy "

If you have trouble reading this and understanding it, sometimes the emotion of the person speaking can drive home the true meaning. Here is the video:

I Disagree wit the notion of serving the govrn. for its them, not us who are the servants.
and one should never judge politicians by their words or emotions, but by their actions.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Is it time to drop the death penalty?

Originally posted by vikaTae:

Punisher, this idea of the death penalty for officers of the law for any corruption no matter how small, is simply unworkable. The way you’ve phrased it, it opens up the death penalty based on hearsay.

Both police officers and judges are human. Both are capable of interpreting the law any number of ways, and they may be privvy to facts you are not. You’re basically callingfor their death if they interpret the law differently to the way you do, in your ‘any corruption, no matter how small’.

It would lead to a state without law enforcement, ultimately, or a state whose law enforcement refused to deviate from the letter of the law, thus ignoring the spirit of the law.


With other issues, what differentiates a professional thief from an opportunist thief? Are you setting some sort of boundary? If you are, please explain it.

Why do you have the death penalty for armed robbery, but not have it for armed assault? What’s the difference to your mind, please?

By corruption of the officers of the law who commit acts against the word and/or spirit of the law intentionally for personal gain or or the gain of some one else who is not influencing them by intimidation.
Professional thief is the one who commits theft for the sole purpose of gain economic benefit rather than immediate survivor.

Armed robbers rob for the sole purpose of gaining economic benefit from it someone commits an armed assault and kills someone to gallows with him,other wise, they must pay for the damages, if damages can not be paid, then they must suffer the same damage.
I forgot Rapists in my post, death to them with haste, whether victim forgives them or not.
For all offenses other than professional and law related, if victim or his heirs forgive, perp walks free.

I’m sure executing women who have been raped discourages them from being raped. Makes perfect sense. No wonder their rape statistics are so low!

They do execute for many crimes, but getting raped is not a “crime”.
So, if you guys could lease take your heads out of your arses, that would be great.

I don’t think ya got the gist of what Kasic was saying. Perhaps ya couldn’t hear it any too well because of the sound abating qualities of the abdominal wall? Diddgya see anywhere he mentioned it being a “crime”….at least THERE?

Most anywhere else, it is a horrible crime….very strongly punished.
In the U.S., child abuse is taken very seriously…..IN JAIL by the inmates.


Or, perhaps ya didn’t get Kasic’s point because it was so heavily laced w/ wonderful sarcasm?

In seriousness, the death penalty be based on PROOF. If there is any doubt, no death penalty.

In seriousness, tell me what ya mean by “any doubt”.
What would “beyond a shadow of doubt” be to ya?
Would YOU kill a person while any doubt at all existed?
The only surety I could have would be to see it myself; OR, if someone I utterly trusted w/ my own life did see it and related it to me.

Or may be Kasics post was so full of shit that I could not Understand It.

Murder, Professional Thieves, Armed Robbers, Drug Traffickers, Sex Traffickers, Child Molesters, Corrupt Judges and Policemen (No matter how small their corruption is).

I’ve never been called that before, and I don’t know why a Lebanese movement would care about an American gaming site.

I’d assume you care for it the same way most zealots ‘care’ for this site, by stumbling across it and immediately realizing that it hasn’t seen enough pro-hezbollah lebanese action!

The anti-Israel movement isn’t some palestinian frankenstein, it’s gone global. I see no reason why lebanon – or whoever claims to speak for lebanon – wouldn’t want to get in on the bandwagon.

I have, at times, contributed something to these threads. At the moment, broad skepticism in the views of arabs – and their sycophants in pakistan – do me quite well, but if you prefer, I hate Johnnybegood’s posts least of all.

If you are too high and mighty for this humble site, don’t bother coming, nobody is forcing your hand.

My complete contempt for you does, though.

YES, if you say something good about the Taliban, you ARE a shill for them. If you pointed out that dealing with the Taliban is probably Afghanistan’s only chance for survival from civil war, I’d agree.

But slobbering all over their collective cock, as you’ve done so repeatedly, is not the answer. I don’t particularly care how violent you are, or what violent actions you’re willing to go to take your goal. Your bluster is quite irrelevant to me, although I do find it enjoyable to read, so by all means keep going, but you have as much depth as Sacha Baron Cohen. When will morons like you learn, that westernizers are not persuaded by garbage? We don’t care how much you threaten, or boast, or whatever. We care what you can bring to the table. If you can’t bring solid facts, then you’re a worthless sycophant for dictators. That’s all.

This Hezbollah shill, for all his faults, is a serious speaker. When he writes, I listen, even if it’s more of the same garbage, because at least it’s palatable garbage, and not the same old ‘attack us and we’ll destroy you’ riff that I’ve long grown tired of. As far as i’m concerned, the Pakistanis can roast. And I don’t much care if they say the same about us. They’ll radiate long before we will, if only because of their own idiotic stubbornness.

So in tour opinion, stating some positive fact about someone, makes you their “shill”?
You, see I think that a positive attitude or an act committed by some one you don’t like, must not be dicounted just because you dislike the person committing the act.
Also, once, I was just like Labayka, then I learned no matter what, You can not change the opinion of most of the people online.
So why bother, its much more fun to just frighten or enrage people than researching hard facts and giving online links and such.
You may have grown tired of this ‘attack us and we’ll destroy you’ but that is the truth.
You mate seem to have a superiority complex, not unlike hipsters. You seem to see the world with a special glass, which shows you every one smaller than they really are.
I still stand by my statement that

Seriously, for many of these westerners, any one talking in contrast to what their media portrays is a goon of the related organisation.

Also you seem to attack the person rather than argument.
What is this talk about Radiation?
