“They (the justices) have simply restored on a legal basis constitutionall principles that where previously a matter of political convention…it’s the job of the supreme court to determine what the constitutional rules are?”
– Lord Jonathan Sumption
The Justices have converted “Political Convention” into precedent law. They have given themselves the power/authority to intervene in future issues between parliamentarians and the executive branch of the state.
Their reasoning was the “extreme effect” of the prorogation. The justification was the effect of the government’s actions after the fact?
Have they now created a new principle? An act can be ruled ‘”unlawful” it it creates an “extreme effect” on society or statist mechanisms.
Here is the pretense of the Justices. Their ruling was a political choice, with political effects/ramifications. All 11 Justices were well aware of which side of the political divide their ruling would impact.
Lady Hale in her reading of their decision could have clearly stated their increased supervisory powers over the executive branch of the state. Why? It was televised for public consumption, hence clarity and brevity are important for easy comprehension of their reasoning and ruling.
No obfuscation. A direct, overt statement of their increased powers to intervene!
I came across one of Jason Hunter’s youtube videos. It did challenge my ideas on a no deal Brexit. I was initially keen to delve deeper into what he had to say but this particular talk on youtube showed clearly what we a dealing with: A psychopathic, smug, hypocritical EUphile.
Firstly, Jason does point out factually the pitiful inadequacy of the Rt Hon Theresa May’s cabinet and the civil service regarding Brexit. On this I have to agree with him.
The facts or allusions to them cannot be denied. There are hundreds of treaties which must be recreated. Jason mentions 750.
Jason Hunter makes no pretense at being impartial, neither do I. He wants the referendum result revoked due to fraud by leave campaigners. He even throws in Russian collusion via social media bots.
What nonsense. Any criticism of the west is classed as Russian collusion. Are the Russians persecuting Lyn Thyer or David Noakes for making GcMaf or mandating vaccines?
Back to this hypocrite, Jason Hunter. Let us use his own words to expose his motivations and psychopathy or not:
Let us contrast two statements Jason makes in this video. Concern for people losing their jobs, incomes.
“jobs, is jobs, is jobs, its not, its households. It’s people. Real people lives, real people incomes, real peoples mortgage payments, that’s what we’re talking about”
Versus, what he did for a large steel company
“For several years, I was head of strategic planning for a very large steel company and we’d pick another country’s industry, say an automotive and we want to sell them flat steel…
once we’ve destroyed that competitor, we have that market all to ourselves for the next 5, 10, 15 years…”
He was not concerned about “people’s” jobs or incomes when his steel employer destroyed their competitor however due to Brexit he is concerned for destroyed jobs and companies.
He accepts capital’s exploitative predation and psychopathy when they(he) is the predator but not when he or the UK are victims of that same predation.
“The EU are pulling their hair out, we’ve got back channels over there, we talk to them regularly”
“We’ve talked with some of the leading drug manufacturers here in the UK, we talked with GlaxoSmithKline, talked to AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson…the big four if you like and they consult with the government”
– GlaxoSmithKline (make Cervarix HPV vaccine)
– AstraZeneca UK (make Fluenz Tetra flu vaccine)
– Johnson & Johnson (researching HIV/Ebola vaccines)
He has back-channels to the EU that openly disclose confidential activity between UK government ministers and the EU. It clearly show a strange level of intimacy to my mind. From what I gather, he has negotiated “trade deals” for companies NOT nation-states, so why does he have this degree of intimate access to Brussels and pharma?
The real deceit by this man, as he positions it as a rational choice, is to “pause” Brexit by revoking Article 50! I say it is a deceit because he must know once Brexit is stopped by revoking the divorce document (article 50), the political will for Brexit evaporates. Neither party will ever initiate the Brexit process ever again!. Real Brexiteers are in the minority in parlimanent.
Jason Hunter is still worth listening to for a dose of Brexit reality. However are his views consistent with someone truly concerned for liberty, “democracy”, or rejection of capital’s priests/oligarchs and their psychopathy?
The truth is, the Chinese are doing with their new Internet police force exactly what all governments would like to do. All of them fear dissension, and all of them—given the chance—would snuff out those promoting it. This is becoming increasingly difficult, of course, and the reason is plain to see. The Internet has fundamentally altered the game, and governments have been left scrambling to stay on top of the rising political awareness taking shape across the planet. Some will undoubtedly use the news of China’s cyber cops to foster the idea of American superiority. But then, China doesn’t purport itself to be the world’s great shining light for freedom and justice. So at the end of the day, when everything is tallied…who’s the real jerk?
Note: The West, the defenders of freedom? Really? Bogus wars, false-flags, oh snooping statutes in the US, Canada, UK.
“Governments” have reached their expiration dates. It was and still serves as a model of the ruling turds (oligarchs/Banksters/Royal and monied families), to coerce via legal deceptions masking state violence.
