Re: Judicial independence


"The Judicial system works as long as a) it is independent and b) the government adheres to the outcome of a judicial process.

We see strong tendencies that both a and b are being undermined. Not only in the UK, but Hungary and Poland are some strong examples. You may draw your own conclusions where it is heading..."

There's a third requirement as well......someone to bring a case. After all, people can flout the law all they like and the judicial system will do nothing about it until a case comes before the court. Problem is, when politicians (or bodies controlled by them) are the people who should bring the case. Take the current VW dieselgate scandal. Whilst some action has been happening, anyone been brought before the courts yet in any meaningful way? It's the regulators and politicians that should be forcing the cases, but there seems to be a lack of interest, hence the law becomes an ass.
