The Meaning of the Missing Documents

I recently sent a box of files to the Royal Courts of Justice at the end of a criminal appeal, so that the bill could be checked and paid.  A few weeks later the Court of Appeal was chasing me for my papers.  We soon established that they had disappeared in the hands of the RCJ.  They have vanished into thin air.

This has not happened to me since the 1980s (when such events were commonplace).  Mrs Thatcher may have gone, but the hopeless state to which she reduced our public services is gradually returning. 

Do not expect  the return of your papers (or any justice either) from a chronically underfunded system.
