Err, no.

Inquests that are deemed a risk to national security by the Government would be held in secret in future under proposed powers to come before the House of Lords this autumn.

The provisions, under a clause in the Counter-Terrorism Bill, allow the Home Secretary to stop a jury being summoned, replace the coroner with a government appointee and bar the public from inquests if it is deemed to be in the public interest.

Justice done in secret ain\’t justice.

Bugger off.

  1. Where has the British peoples backbone gone?

    You assume it was there to begin with.

    Only a full constitutional republic which would limit the powers of Parliament to be unable to pass legislation like this, would be able to stop them.

    Of course, we wouldn’t want that one, would we Tim? Never mind, Tim can whine about the EU instead (the evil bastards) while all the time the British Parliament is on a search and destroy mission on human rights in order to create a state of Fear with some of the most draconian powers at its disposal.

    I wonder if the UKIP has a policy to limit the powers of Parliament?

    I don’t think so.
