Publication Launch: Thursday 11th December 2014 
 
 
In the May 2014 European elections huge numbers across the EU voted for Eurosceptic parties. Britain’s UK Independence Party topped the poll in the UK which meant more than half the votes went to Eurosceptic parties. The prime minister has promised to renegotiate the UK’s relation with the EU, if the Conservative party is returned to power. Since then, Politeia’s UK/EU debate has been launched to consider the principles to guide UK policy, opening with Martin Howe QC’s - Zero Plus: The Principles of EU Renegotiation.

As the political parties prepare for the 2015 general election, much work still remains in restoring the public finances, and another round of cuts is inevitable. In the case of justice, the authors of Magistrates Work! explain how savings can be made and the principles governing the operation of a fair justice system can be protected. 

The co-authors, Simon Reevell MP, Professor John Howson and Stanley Brodie QC, take stock of the recent closure of the magistrates’ courts, cut from 330 courts in 2009 to 240 in 2014. The consequences have been lamentable.

NHS failings, including many which affect the day to day care of sick people, have been all too prominent in the UK. They have raised serious concerns about the standards of care in our hospitals and led to a number of official inquiries and recommendations. They have prompted questions about the structures for accountability, the system for investigating concerns and, not least, staffing levels.
