Governor: You criticised our Prime Minister, that not accepted here.

Govner of the Bank of EnglandHe holds the position of Governor of the Bank of England. Quite an impressive job title if I do say so myself. However he is facing calls for him to resign from said position for he expressed concerns about Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor George Osborne.

He really should have know better. This is Britain, we Do not critisize our political figures and we definately do not express concern over their abilities. Its not like we live in a democratic state which values freedom of expression anyway.

Wait a second, isnt that one of our more important values? Well, we are a part of the European Union, so surely Article 11 of the european convention should apply even to our citizens.

Political figures, and even the governor are in the limelight of the public interest critisism from fellow peers and more importantly by the people that put them in the job – the voters is not only expected is mandatory. Without opening debat about the actions of our representatives and having the freedom to express ourselves against their actions without fear of reprimand like they do in such states as the Peoples Republic of China or Iran how can we possibility life a life where progress is put above the political interest of one political figure.

He informed the US ambassador that he belived the now Prime Minister lacked the experience to run the country, well who does if they havent done it allready?

Government: Sorry, we cant afford the justice system its going.

Cold Dark WorldThe latest news of cuts does not look encouraging for the UK. With some of the agencies under review or to be abolished I for one am struggling to see the current government as a practical approach to running the UK.

The plan to deal with the huge deficit in the UK budget may see the debt paid off in full by the end of the year. Unfortunately, there would not be a country left to run after it has been. The government needs to seriously consider what it is doing carefully or face a prospect of a country that business and even the people do not see as a viable country to operate and trade in.

There are literally hundreds of bodies currently stated funded that are bracing for abolishment. Some of these I have never heard of, some sound very important and should not ever be meddled with. The Administrative Justice and Tribunals Council – they over see the Administrative Justice System. They are now on the list to be abolished – I mean who needs justice anyway?

The Courts Board and Crown Court Rule Committee are on the way out as well, the HM Inspectorate of Court Administration might want to update their CV too.  Legal Deposit Advisory Panel, Legal Services Commission and Legal Services Ombudsman – they probably don’t do anything either? Maqistrates’ Court Rule Committee we must have too many court staff lets just get rid of due process we’ll go straight to the chopping board instead – it’ll save money and time.

It doesn’t stop there, the crown prosecution service is to be fiddled with too likely reduced in size which is probably a good thing we wont have any courts left to send the criminals to trial to anyway. Especially with the UK Supreme Court under review for the ax too! One of the most important changes in UK Justice in many years and they think they can just abolish it shortly after it came into existence unbelievable. The Civil Justice Council faces the same review.

Numerous committees looking into infections and health and a few dozen other miscellaneous bodies ranking from historical ship wrecks to Disability Employment Advisory Committee. I presume we don’t need to teach any more in this scary future because the General Teaching Council of England is no longer to exist too.

Equality and Human Rights Commission  and the Office for Fair Trading do we honestly want to drop them? But they are in review so there is hope.

Whilst you consider your thoughts on this I’m going to find Excalibur I think the hour of our greatest need is fast approaching.
