anyone of those offended or injured can draw it to the attention of the court of law and seek to have the law enforced

Here’s a page that I was sent to make me feel encouraged in my wish to point out irregularities observed in courts. It’s taken from the book Administrative Law and quoted Lords Denning and Diplock:

I regard it as a matter of high constitutional principle that if there is good ground for supposing that a government department or a public authority is transgressing the law,or is about to transgress it, in a way which offends or injures thousands of Her Majesty’s subjects, then anyone of those offended or injured can draw it to the attention of the court of law and seek to have the law enforced, and the courts in their discretion” can grant whatever remedy is appropriate.

But it’s like the Bible: the words are beautiful, but what counts are the deeds – of pastors or judges, it seems: whether they are capable of living what they preach, write or were taught. However, how do we learn to walk our talk? I guess, only by life’s experiences…

    Look at what has been going on in the north of England with disturbed and vulnerable young girls simply because the “authorities” chose to ignore an obvious public scandal that had been reported by the newspapers years ago!
    (I note the perpetrators have been treated with extreme leniance!,…I wonder why?)

    The clincher phrase is: – ..”and the Courts IN THEIR DISCRETION can grant whatever remedy is appropriate”. The perfect get-out clause I would submit. Should anyone try it, the result would be very interesting – but probably disappointing ultimately.
