Back in the early 90s I spent a bit of time in the Old Magistrates Court in Spring St. The part I loved was the breaks when the various legal teams would adjourn to the Central Courtyard and the debates would start. I was there as a subject matter expert and informant and the Legislation the proceedings where being brought under was very new.
I would get questions about what various things meant, from our team of Solicitors and the Barrister. It was a great education as the barrister in particular would ask my opinion and then proceed to argue against everything I said (sounding familiar?) Where I could point him towards supporting facts I was on much safer ground. There was more than one occasion when his interpretation of the Legislation caused me to re-think my position or change how I was arguing it.
As a barrack room lawyer I love a debate (when I have time) but what really irks me is people who offer an opinion as fact and they haven't done the research or read the rules/legislation and essentially cannot provide any evidence to support their argument. If you ever have time, go sit in some open court sessions. You'll very quickly see what happens when opinion given on the basis of feelings is used to support an argument. I would love to see more people educated in this area instead of getting their opinions from "social" media or the "Media" in general, but I digress.
For a long time on this site I was a guest and didn't post. But I was always struck by the similarity with my Magistrate Court involvement.
When it came to choosing a name I thought it a nice homonym to use "worship", as a Magistrate was addressed as "Your Worship"
I know there are a number of members here who have a legal background and yes, I know Magistrates are now referred to as "Your Honour". Probably because the great unwashed never new the difference between a Magistrate and a Judge, (that's an "opinion").
Unfortunately, DHonour just doesn't work and besides, I'd rather have the name shortened to DW than DH
