Left of Centre Lord Denning Facebook Fan Page

We have to say left of centre because the title includes and anglo-saxon word…

One come across a wide variety of Facebook fan pages .. this one stood out for us though….

Created by Alan Lo at McMaster and entitled

I don’t need sex, Lord Denning fucks me every day.

We think it is designed to illustrate how confusing some of Denning’s judgements can be – as illustrated below. as one of the comments says…would’nt it be great if and even much easier if his judgments were in swahili.

"Broadchalke is one of the most pleasing villages in England. Old Herbert Bundy, the defendant, was a farmer there. His home was at Yew Tree Farm. It went back for 300 years. His family had been there for generations. It was his only asset. But he did a very foolish thing. He mortgaged it to the bank."

—Lloyds Bank v. Bundy [1973] 3 All ER 757

"In summertime village cricket is the delight of everyone. Nearly every village has its own cricket field where the young men play and the old men watch. In the village of Lintz in County Durham they have their own ground, where they have played these last 70 years. They tend it well. The wicket area is well rolled and mown. The outfield is kept short . . . [y]et now after these 70 years a judge of the High Court has ordered that they must not play there anymore . . . [h]e has done it at the instance of a newcomer who is no lover of cricket. This newcomer has built . . . a house on the edge of the cricket ground which four years ago was a field where cattle grazed. The animals did not mind the cricket."

—Miller v. Jackson (1977) Q.B. 966, 976

"Old Peter Beswick was a coal merchant in Eccles, Lancashire. He had no business premises. All he had was a lorry, scales, and weights. He used to
take the lorry to the yard of the National Coal Board, where he bagged coal and took it round to his customers in the neighbourhood. His nephew, John Joseph Beswick, helped him in his business. In March 1962, old Peter Beswick and his wife were both over 70. He had had his leg amputated and was not in good health. The nephew was anxious to get hold of the business before the old man died. So they went to a solicitor, Mr. Ashcroft, who drew up an agreement for them"

— Beswick v. Beswick (1966) Ch. 538
