Magistrates Work! Restoring Local Justice
The political parties are now in general election mode for the 2015 election. The country has been warned that more cuts are on the way to tackle the levels of deficit which remain. The question for many will be how can the principles on which justice rests be maintained despite economic stringency?
In Politeia's new publication, Magistrates Work!the authors* take stock of the consequences of the closure of magistrates courts before and since 2010, including the damage to access to justice, transparency and rising costs.
Zero Plus: The Principles of EU Renegotiation
Martin Howe QC
Launched at a special meeting in Birmingham with Martin Howe QC, Jacob Rees-Mogg MP and Dominic Grieve MP on 30th September 2014.
The Prime Minister has called for a renegotiation of Britain's relationship with Europe, and all the main parties are committed to EU reform.
This week, Politeia published Zero Plus: The Principles of EU Renegotiation by leading EU lawyer and government legal adviser, Martin Howe QC. As author of Politeia's Safeguarding Sovereignty, Mr Howe inspired the European Union Act 2011. Howe's latest proposals have the potential to redefine the terms of Britain's EU debate.
Here Is The City's coverage of the pamphlet gives an extensive review of Howe's thesis.
