The problem with this argument is that the spirit of an Act is only relevant insofar as it can affect the construction of substantive requirements of the law concerned, or show how a Minister or other decision-maker ought to exercise his or her discretion.
America’s democracy and constitution is being trashed by unelected shadowy forces, aided and abetted by prestigious media outlets like the New York Times. These forces presume to know better or have more privilege than their fellow Americans who “voted the wrong way”.
Legal critics of the judgement have pointed out that the Supreme Court has casually dispensed with the fundamentals of the ‘political constitution’ that was established following the ‘Glorious Revolution’ of 1688. In that constitution the Queen in parliament is sovereign.
A Technocracy sees people simply as numbers or statistics that needs to be shifted by carrots and sticks and nothing more. Although the Technocratic Method does work, its attitude towards to population as mindless cattle is certainly felt and creates mountains of contempt.
Numerous distinguished institutions made submissions to the court case raising serious concerns about the scheme, including the Faculty of Advocates, the Law Society, the Church of Scotland, the British Association for Adoption and Fostering, and the Scottish Parent Teacher Council.
The last Conservative MP in the seat of Newcastle-under-Lyme was Charles Donaldson-Hudson. A JP and member of the landed gentry, he held it from 1880 to 1885. Yet when the autumn election finally arrives, Newcastle - a Labour bastion ever since - will be one of the Tory party’s top target seats.
Former Federal Reserve official Bill Dudley’s recent op-ed calling for the Federal Reserve to implement policies that will damage President Trump’s reelection campaign states that such action would be unprecedented. Dudley claims the Federal Reserve bases its policies solely on an objective evaluation of economic conditions. This is an example of a so-called noble lie — a fiction told by elites to the masses supposedly for the people’s own good, but really designed to maintain popular support for policies that benefit the elites. Dudley’s noble lie is designed to bolster a rapidly (and deservedly) eroding trust in the Federal Reserve.…
Throughout the day on Sunday there were various protests and scenes of disruption, with Hong Kong police at times looking embattled, at times appearing indiscriminate in their response, at others showing restraint in the face of intimidation.
You’re the sort of person who thinks police states might be quite good if right-minded people – someone like you – ran them. Like socialists & euro-federalists, you believe there is a technical fix for sin, for poverty, for war. You think the human condition is more crossword puzzle than spiritual challenge.
The proponents of a new Bill to prevent No Deal are caught on the horns of a dilemma. If they had drafted a Bill that only mandated the PM to seek an extension, the PM would have been left free to refuse to agree any extension in negotiations with the EU27. However, Benn-Burt goes much further than Cooper-Letwin did (paras 30-32). It mandates that the PM must not only seek but also agree to an extension, either 31 January 2020 or another date if the House of Commons approves a date suggested by the EU27. Mandating that the PM agrees to an extension manifestly…
Yes, I know. I am lining up on the wrong side. You are supposed to hate him. The presstitutes hate Trump. So does the Democratic Party, part of the Republican Party, the military/security complex, the entirety of the liberal/progressive/left, the universities, feminists, and Washington’s vassal states. No one likes him but the “racist, white supremacist Trump deplorables.” Nevertheless, I feel sorry for him. I started feeling sorry for him when he announced he would run for President of the United States. You see, I had inside information. I had held a presidential appointment from a President of the United States. I ended up fighting battles for…
