At the moment the UK government (and indeed the Irish government) are back-peddling on harsh covid measures. I don’t for one moment believe this is genuine, and is all part of the plan, because most other countries in the world remain in full lockstep psycho mode. Probably the easing of restrictions in the UK and Ireland is being used to introduce some new Frankenstein virus. This might take the form of marburg hemorrhagic fever.
Whatever happens in the weeks ahead, the creatures behind all this can’t be allowed to crawl back under their stones. If we want to move forward into a half-way sane society they all need to be put on trial, and hanged where necessary. By that I mean the government and their advisors, of course, but also all other politicians who have gone along with the covid nonsense, and the medical profession, the media and the police, and the total psychos in the security services. We can’t move forward unless these people are hung out to dry.
With that in mind, here’s a little bit about the law in the UK…
There is no written constitution in the United Kingdom; no single document that guarantees the rights of citizens. The UK has what’s known as an ‘uncodified’ constitution; ie, there are a number of documents and precedents that establish citizen’s rights, yet these rights have never been written into a single document bound by law. Some of the principle documents that make up the British constitution are: Magna Carta of 1215 (which outlined the rights of freemen and serfs), the Habeas Corpus Act of 1679 (which enshrines the principle that nobody may be arbitrarily detained without having their case heard in a court of law), and the Act of Settlement of 1701 (which outlines royal succession). These archaic documents, along with many others, are what governs the inhabitants of the British Isles in the 21st century; along with precedent (ie, some things are not written down, but instead are done because “that’s the way they’ve always been done”). You have to be both a legal and constitutional expert in order to find all this stuff and understand it. It’s hardly a constitution, and is easily abused by those who have power.
The law in England and Wales is made in two very different ways (it’s similar in Scotland – Northern Ireland is a bit different because of the Troubles). Firstly, there is Case Law, which is the oldest type of law making and is based upon Norman practice, when there used to be travelling courts which tried cases and established precedents which were then followed by other courts.
A typical modern example of Case Law is the case of Lloyds Bank versus Bundy. In this case, a farmer called Bundy had borrowed money from Lloyds Bank against the security of his farm. The property was in his sole name, although he had lived at the farm with his wife for many years. Mrs. Bundy had not signed the bank documents for the loan. Mr. Bundy failed to repay the loan or make repayments and so the bank sued to get possession of the farm which it would then sell to recover its money. Lord Justice Denning (sitting in the highest appeal court) ruled that, as the wife had contributed to the house over many years, she was entitled to a share of it and that the bank had no right to deprive Mrs. Bundy of her home in order to satisfy the bank’s demand for repayments. The bank would have to wait until the farm was sold at some future date. In other words, the bank’s security was limited to Mr. Bundy’s share of the property and, as the property was indivisible, the bank could not have the farm.
The precedent set by this case sent shivers throughout the banking system as all banks had lent money to businesses against the matrimonial home which, more often than not, was in the sole name of the husband and the wife had not been party to the loan agreement.
This precedent did not require a new law to be passed by Parliament; the precedent has become the ‘law of the land’. So now, if I wish to borrow money from the bank against my house, my wife has to sign all the documents.
The second type of law making is called Statute Law. This is law laid down by parliament, and it is supposedly superior to case law. Statute Law comes into effect when an Act of Parliament is passed (by a majority vote in the Houses of Parliament) and thus becomes law.
It gets a little bit more complicated than that in practice. However, in theory, Case Law should always trump Statute Law. All the covid nonsense has been done under Statute Law. Here’s the case against the UK Government:
