justicia  The reforms to judicial review proceedings in Part 4 of the Criminal Justice & Courts Act 2015 have been closely analysed in a timely report by JUSTICE, the Public Law Project and the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law.

In his foreword to the Report, Lord Woolf speaks of his “fears for damage to the rule of law” from the changes, and urges those interpreting Part 4 to interpret and apply the legislation in a way which avoids or least interferes with the rule of law.

Let’s start with the basics – the function of judicial review. As explained in the Introduction:

    we should not assume (as we are told to) that the law is the solution to everyone’s problems, it is often the problem blocking the solution. Laws are designed to protect the rich from the poor and facilitate the perpetuation of the ‘legal profession’.

The poor have nothing and will continue to have nothing, that is the way the system is designed to work, without the poor the structure of society would fail.

    • How most astute and how clearly a reflection of my insight into what is unique in the UK: the class system as it expresses itself through the two levels of education: private and public and the difference in quality.

    that site/ blog looks to be part of the PR campaign from the govt….any and all comments that offer a different point of view/ challenge their position never get published…and if you the comments that do get published it’s all very very controlled…..you wouldn’t believe the nerve of them, if they really are ‘lawyers’ now could you? 😉

    Simply put, they the lawyers ? are tyrants and slave owners ! We the public are
    secretly enslaved, of course Man. Untd. Spurs, L.pool, are more important than
    ” life or death ” Bill Shankly Liverpool manager. And while Joe Public remains
    a pathetic excuse for a human being obsessed with trivia the truth will remain
    hidden. His children will be sacrificed and abused in a satanic ritual , his country
    sold down the river by the most useless monarch ever burdened on a kingdom
    in history, 60 years of doing nowt ! and having her ego painted by Rolf the abuser.
    meanwhile Jimmy is ” fixing it ” for all her subjects ( rejects ) children by her courts of
    law ( Lost And Wandering ) has Kinnock ( pillock ) says ” Things can only get better “
