The Agenda: The law of forfeiture is oppressive

In the latest episode of "The Agenda", Jonathan Seitler QC's alliterative agenda is this: the law of forfeiture is oppressive, obsolete and otiose.

Seitler argues that it is oppressive "both when it is used and when it is not used", putting fear into tenants, and that it is old-fashioned and unnecessary. 

However, Jeremy Stephen, associate director at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner argues that forfeiture is not oppressive and you cannot have leasehold title without it - and he has a special prop with him to prove his point.

Will Seitler or Stephen persuade you to his point of view?
