The Queen's Speech

The Queen's Speech really demonstrates why this government is so incompetent.

It seems quite clear to me that the government at the most senior level don't really understand what is happening on the ground. The normal systems of feedback are not operating properly. This was seen when the GP targets stopped people from booking appointments in advance.

One of the bills talks about having laws fade away. One hopes that this does not apply to Habeas Corpus which has been on the statute book since the 1600s.

On Health Improvement they really need to be looking at the way anti-biotics are handled. Too many diseases are developing resistance and still anti-biotics are prescribed for viral infections (at the request of patients). It really seems odd if statutory legislation is needed to improve cleanliness.

As far as getting private contractors into do NHS work they need to tread quite carefully. There can be systems of feedback that come in to undermine the core NHS and result in increased costs.

It is true that management in the public sector does not operate perfectly. That substantially is because of the amount of central bureaucracy and the lack of local discretion.

A very large number of the bills appears to be gesture legislation. People have a concern so the government - which is supposed to be running the executive - brings in legislation.

Clearly the legislation that was in existance for the past 8 years is wrong and needs to be changed. Who was responsible for that ... oh Tony Blair and his cronies.

Errrm... the General Election result tells us that whatever the poplulation thinks, far more people think this Government is less incompetent than the Party John belongs to.

Statement re Police investigation into Harassment and Perverting the Course of Justice.

It was recently reported that the police were not investigating the allegations of Perverting the Course of Justice that I had made. This came as a surprise to me as I had been told for some time that my allegations were to be considered once the VRR had been rejected. I have now had a very constructive meeting with Staffordshire police on Friday 29th June 2018 and the misunderstandings have been resolved. At that meeting the evidence relating to the perversion of the course of justice and the harassment campaign against my family were discussed. The police have decided to investigate both the perversion of the course of justice and also the harassment campaign. I would like to thank them for changing their decision and I accept their apology for the way in which they did that. I am also in possession of written confirmation a police force would be investigating allegations that a vulnerable witness has been harassed for trying to expose the campaign against me. I hope that the aut…

R v SUSSEX JUSTICES ex p McCARTHY [1924] 1 KB 256

I have only just found this one which I think is accurately reported below (but if it is not please give me an accurate report).

KING’S BENCH DIVISION

R v SUSSEX JUSTICES ex p McCARTHY [1924] 1 KB 256

November 9 1923

Editor’s comments in bold.

Here, the magistrates’ clerk retired with the bench when they were considering a charge of dangerous driving. The clerk belonged to a firm of solicitors acting in civil proceedings for the other party to the accident. It was entirely irrelevant that there had been no evidence of actual influence brought to bear on the magistrates, and the conviction was duly quashed.

LORD HEWART CJ:
It is clear that the deputy clerk was a member of the firm of solicitors engaged in the conduct of proceedings for damages against the applicant in respect of the same collision as that which gave rise to the charge that the justices were considering. It is said, and, no doubt, truly, that when that gentleman retired in the usual way with the justices, taking with him the…
