UPDATE Today the Judge agreed with us and ordered that the hearing date for our Injunction be held ASAP.Could be as early as next Wed. Govt have until this Friday to file evidence. All papers will be up on the site in next 24 hrs
Oh, well, if it is only a wedding company, no much benefit to the hospitality industry, then they probably win this time. The problem would be if the judge decide that in order to avoid discrimination no pubs or restaurants can have more than 30 people at once.
It’s not industry focused. but there is a wedding company involved in the case
I am a bit confused. It is to do with the whole hospitality industry or just with some wedding reception bussines ?
The case is unequivocally illegal. theres no sensible justification for it. the only argument I could think is plausible is from an economic perspective as the whole of Europe was shutting down and if UK became infested with corona then maybe it could have triggered a recession “naturally“. easy with hindsight to say that didn’t work because they caused one anyway but it was a managed recession and still is. i don’t think gov will come at it like that they’ll use the science/health argument which is flawed. Regardless it won’t stop much they’ll reengineer it so they can continue doing what they’re doing they don’t care if tax payers are hedging out millions to pay legal fees To fight cases.
I hope I get it wrong but it is not going to succeed unfortunately.
What do you mean Steve? You can file a form to ensure public are entitled to watch/be present? Not aware of this.
Can anyone inform me where the hearing is taking place and whether there is a public gallery? Very keen to show support on the ground but even more so watch the case
