A league of lawyers is suing the government over the British legal system.  Inspired by religion, the group is pushing for a more flexible approach to national laws, similar to the way that religious texts can be open to interpretation.

“This one-size-fits-all approach is so outdated,” said a spokesman.  “We need to move with the times and bring more flexibility into our judicial system.  Within many religions, texts are interpreted differently and alternative conclusions drawn from them.  That kind of approach is exactly what is needed to drag the legal system out of the dark ages.  I mean, life’s not black and white, why should the law be?”

The lawyers argue that in our fast-paced modern world the law needs to alter to keep-up.  “National laws are added, amended or scrapped all the time,” explains barrister, Johnny Wide.  “Like homosexuality becoming legal or women getting the vote.  Making laws less rigid would eliminate the need for costly, time-consuming changes when required.  It would be so much easier if we could introduce less concrete boundaries to work within, plus it’d spice things up a treat at work.”
