Britain’s self publicising Director of Public Prosecutions Mr Keir Starmer

Frazer Nelson of the Spectator on why judicial activism means that we need a Bill of Rights more than ever than before.

“Rule of law is becoming rule by lawyers, as Harry Mount argued in a recent Spectator cover story. The laws of the land should be decided in Parliament by elected politicians, not by barristers like Starmer and the sooner a Bill of Rights makes this point, the better.”

    NO! NO! NO!

    The law of the land is decided by the judiciary. SEPERATE fom the “Government”.

    As soon as we alow it to be decided by the dictatorship, we are no better than the nazis, with the “Nürnberg laws”, and Hitler/Görings …. Hel! what was it called now? Where Hitler ursurped the Weimar constitution and took all political decissions upon himself…? (Machtergreifung)

    Separation of powers agreed, but the issue we have at the moment is the laws the last government enacted not being repealed and a left leaning judiciary.
