Re: Corbyn will never be Prime Minister

Che. As usual failing to understand political philosophies. The EU a 'socialist monolith' ! It is the very essence of capitalist economics as set out in the many treaties that describe the central role of private business as against state controlled economy. It is why the Greeks hit the EU barriers ...

Re: Corbyn will never be Prime Minister

Quite ironic that the 'Party of law and order' was responsible for a security clampdown at its own Conference yesterday, when it's Treasuer of the 1922 Committee , the body responsible for discipline, Geoffrey Clifton-Brown was in a fracas at Conference with security staff and was told to leave the ...

Re: Brexit and the current position

Cbe I had a great, even if cold and wet Sunday. World Cup rugby followed by my own team Newcastle Falcons fantastic win over Doncaster and then home, a good meal and lots of chuckles with your latest post. It was amusing that you suggested that I would respond with slogans when you managed to get in...

Re: Brexit and the current position

Your first posting did not mention propensity to vote for a particular party, which is why I did not mention it; I restricted my reply to the points you have raised. I find it necessary to respond to existing points rather than go off on tangent with unresolved claims hanging in the air. You have no...

Re: Brexit and the current position

Richard, the position of the gig economy people, is as you suggest complicated and as I do not follow that area of law in detail I am a bit rusty. A new category of person was defined in recent years by Tribunals and academics, that of 'worker', that is a hybrid between employee and self employed. I...

Re: Brexit and the current position

I did not say or imply that you had suggested that public sector workers don't work. I was interested in your lumping public sector workers as if they are of a certain type of person. Immigrants, without some permanent right to remain do not have the right to vote. This has been one of the issues of...

Re: Brexit and the current position

Illegal and unlawful are in this context the same. There was no specific 'statute' in place, but as the justices analysed the facts they determined that Johnson had broken the common law, in this case stopping parliament doing its job. Lady Hale said that the prorogation was of no legal effect, was ...

Re: Brexit and the current position

That is basically it. There is binding precedent but there is also 'persuasive' precedent, The latter applies where a previous court of the same level as a current case has considered the same or similar scenario. Depending on the depth on which the previous judgment was expressed the same level cou...
