Guide to the UK legal System

 

The UK legal system is a specialist tribunal and it deals with matters related to employment, immigration and tax in England and Wales. The Supreme Court remains the final court of appeals for all civil and criminal UK cases in England, Wales and North Ireland. UK and North Ireland consists of four countries: England, Wales, Scotland and North Ireland. Some laws applies to throughout the UK while some for two or three countries.

The sources of UK law

There are four principal sources of UK law and they are:

  • Legislation
  • European Union law
  • Common law
  • European convention on human rights

Legislation – The law in the UK is created by the legislature and the most important piece of the law is the Act of parliament. The UK parliament based in London is the principal legislature and it remains the only body which hold power to pass laws that can be applied in all four countries. The UK parliament consists of the House of Lords and the House of Commons. There are 650 members of parliament in House of Commons and each MP represents defined geographic consistency. Each elector will have one vote and the candidate with the highest number of votes will be elected as MP for the constituency. There are nearly 800 peers in the House of Lords, among them, few are appointed by the Queen on the recommendation of the Prime Minister. The Northern Ireland Assembly, the National Assembly for Wales and the Scottish Parliament have power to pass law on devolved matters.

European Union Law – The UK remains a member state of the European Union and the law takes precedence over UK law.

Common law – The legal system of Wales and England has one common law and the decision is taken by the senior appellate courts.

The European convention on human rights –UK is the signatory to the European convention on human rights. The human rights act, which came into effect in October 2000, enables all courts in the UK to protect the rights which are identified in ECHR.

How the UK legal system works

The UK has three different judicial systems: England and Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland.

England and Wales

Criminal laws in England and Wales cover serious crimes such as robbery, murder and assault. If anyone breaks the law, they are prosecuted in the court. If anyone found guilty, they will be sent to prison, fined or given community sentences. Civil law includes disputes between people, company and organization. In criminal cases, if found guilty, the jury will issue their sentence.

The judicial system in Scotland

The Scottish justice department handles issues involving criminal and civil law. Laws on issues are made by the Scottish parliament and they have the right to act independently.

The judicial system in Northern Ireland

The legal system in Northern Ireland is similar to that in England and Wales. The Lord Chancellor would be responsible for court administration in Northern Ireland. The office deals with policy and legislation related to criminal law, police

Corporate Rule

Similar to what is happening in Europe, the corporate monopoly that has been growing larger and larger since the 80’s, is creating an employee monopoly. Using big money to put their own politicians into our government, the borders of the country are wide open. Any third world foreigner is free and welcome to come right on over and have their choice of either living on our social welfare system , receiving an affirmative action job, or working for money under the table without paying taxes.

What this has done is reduce the wages of the American worker and diminish competition for workers for the corporate slave masters. Along with illegal immigrants, the country has been flooded with H1B workers. Since the H1B’s work for half of what an American will work for in salary, this reduces the wages of American citizens. Now, combine this with an interlocking corporate directorship, and what you will find is that there is no competition for workers between corporations. What this results in is flat wages across the board that have not increased much in the past decade even though the cost of housing, gas, and food has increased.  The super rich own the corporations and natural resources we need.  So they reduce worker competition, pay you less to work, and charge you more at the gas pump and at the grocery store.  What does this do?  It increases the gap between us working class citizens and the super rich that live abroad and have absolutely no loyalty or sovereignty to this country.

So of course supply and demand has created this situation. The opening of our borders and the third world H1B visa system has dramatically increased the supply of workers. This has lowered the demand for workers which in turn increases job competition, lowers your wages, and makes you expendable at your job. We also have the industrialization of third world countries going on as well since manufacturing jobs have all but left this country to hire slaves for lower wages. This has caused more demand for natural resources such as oil. Since the oil industry is a monopoly amongst the 6 or 7 sister oil companies and our government has purposely not allowed anyone to drill for more oil nor open more refineries, the cost of gas rises. The oil companies do not complain about this because this eliminates any other new oil company from sprouting up and creating competition which then allows them to gouge us at the pump.

Here is where things do not add up. First of all, our money supply is nothing but monopoly money. It’s printed out of thin air and it is not backed by anything other than the people’s credit. Therefore, as long as it can be paid back, anyone can take out a loan and the money supply can increase. So here’s the question: If the supply of workers has dramatically increased, then why haven’t there been more corporations that sprouted up? Meaning, if there are more workers, then obviously someone would notice this, raise venture capital, and launch another corporation. There is no limit to how much money can be put into the economy. Therefore, there is no limit to how many people can start their own businesses and create more jobs. This would of course create more competition for workers which would then cause wages to rise.

So what does this mean to you? The less interlocking corporations have to compete for workers, the more likely you can succeed at starting your own business. There shouldn’t be any short supply of employees in case you decide you want to hire someone.  How come everyone isn’t doing this?  Maybe it’s because the school system we have is set up to teach us how to be “good little employees”.  The school system doesn’t teach kids how to work for themselves and how to go about becoming self employed.  They teach them the skills they will need to go work for someone else.  And it was no accident that it happens to be this way.   This is why with the country being flooded with third world workers we haven’t seen an explosion in the number of corporations and businesses ready to create more jobs.
