Cameron: I am the Law.

David Cameron British Prime MinisterIn a train of thought that disturbingly rings an echo of Chancellor Palpatine with his solemn declaration that he is the Senate in the final star wars film or third dependent on how you want to look at it, David Cameron has really been showing his true colours since taking power of the parliament.

Justice, Legislative and Administrative, three distinct branches that make up the way our nation works. One should not interfere with each other and the prime minister should know and respect this. He does not however, he is the prime minister which put the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom up for consideration for to be scrapped. A serious decision that would return the power of the most powerful court of justice in the entire country return to the fingers of the house of lords. This should never be allowed to happen. It took the better part of a decade to finally separate justice and legislative branches of power and it must maintain this way. Cameron has been quoted stating things that show he does not wish this to be the case: “once again a ruling by a court that seems to fly completely in the face of common sense.”  in reference to the sex offenders registry.

He clearly things it is good to have people on the sex offenders list for life, really now is this the kind of world we want to bring people up in, when before the law sees children as being legally responsible they could be tarnished with being a Sex offender for the rest of their life? At 10 and 11 years old, surely the young boys cant seriously be considered to be as dangerous as repeat offending pedophiles? With a hint of common sense it is foreseeable that when they grow up and understand what they done  their attitude might be a little different.

Meanwhile, Nick Clegg showing a spark of intelligence admitted that the safety of the public will be unhindered by allowing sex offenders to appeal against being on the list and if deemed to be safe to society they shall be removed.

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.
