”Not all black robes are Corrupt and for those that rule in a fair and just manner need more Public Support for standing UP to the corruption permeated in this system.” – Deborah Barclay
Public law is operated, under the doctrine of parliamentary supremacy, by those who do not naturally think of individual rights at all.
In some areas it must be insisted that fundamental rights in the UK are very well protected by statutes which are enthusiastically enforced by the judiciary. Indeed in two areas at least, freedom from discrimination on grounds of sex or race, there is better protection than that provided by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). As both acts prohibit indirect discrimination, as well as direct, and both operate objective tests rather than intentionality tests, there is no problem in these areas for UK citizens as long as the statutes remain in force.
“Public law is not at base about rights, even though abuses of power may and often do invade private rights; it is about wrongs – that is to say, misuses of public power.”
There are many procedures by which citizens can challenge the legality of decisions made by public bodies. They include: Judicial review: court proceedings in which a judge is asked to review the lawfulness of the decision which is being challenged; Complaints procedures such as the social service complaints procedure; and Ombudsman schemes such as the Local Government Ombudsman, and the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration.
“So if the mother has a complaint, she must appeal District Judge Venables’ order. Whether that appeal lies to the Northampton County Court or to this court is something about which I am not clear.”
