Repent, Repent: the End of the World is Nigh!
Actually, it’s probably an awful lot closer than that if you believe the press coverage of the Court of Appeal’s recent decision in Ilott v. Mitson & Others  EWCA Civ 797 (Arden, Ryder LJJ and Sir Colin Rimer). That being so, you should read this blog entry pretty quickly otherwise there’s a chance that you’ll have dissolved into a random assortment of atoms before you get round to doing so.
The case concerned the estate of Melita Jackson. In her will made in 2002, Mrs Jackson left £5,000 to the BBC Benevolent Fund (no, I didn’t know it existed either) and equal shares of the remainder of the estate (some £481,000) to The Blue Cross, the RSPB, and the RSPCA. In doing so, she failed to make any provision for her only child, Heather, or any other family member. Mrs Jackson died in 2004, having not actively supported any of the 4 charities during her lifetime. While the BBC Benevolent Fund played no role in the subsequent proceedings, the other 3 charities fought every step of the way to uphold the will.
