Fair points but I would imagine that it taints New Beginning's reputation in the eyes of some people whether that's fair or not.It's a good question but I think that barristers are supposed to put their clients' cases forward as best they can. They don't have to believe in their client's case and they don't have to like the client.
I would have thought that this issue of whether or not a Protective Certificate trumps a Circuit Court order for possession is worth airing in the High Court.
The High Court judge "reluctantly" granted a stay so that it could be appealed to the High Court.
The Barrister is doing his job.
The guy has lived rent-free for 9 years. He probably has plenty of money to pay legal fees.
If we as a Society allow a system where someone can live in their home for years without paying and without being repossessed, don't blame the barristers who advocate on behalf of their clients.
On the other hand there's probably a significant cohort that thinks that this is *exactly* what organisations such as NB should be doing...
