What Is A Supreme Court For?

with one comment


Is it to overlook Parliament’s clear intent and to focus on the minutiae of poorly drafted legislation?  Is it to preserve and strengthen the law or is it to be focused on justice?  Is it to consider cases only on the basis of pleadings presented by barristers or should it look to the wider issue?  Is it to bolster the use of disproportionate power with which big institutions bully their customers or should it be to enforce fairness?  Is it for “distinguished” lawyers to live out their latter years in fine, new ermine robes in luxurious surroundings or is it  to promote justice?

I don’t know.  Do you?

  1. It’s about maintaining the status quo. We don’t want the uppity peasants getting too wealthy or powerful, after all what they have known for centuries is that they can never rise above their base situations and nor do we the elite want them to.
