‘Now, all our English liberties are becoming orphans’
The Times on the adoption row
We think that we are free people, but 80 per cent of our laws come from Brussels, and cannot be rejected by the British Parliament or, indeed, by the British electorate.
Wasn’t a huge war fought 65 years ago partly to stop something like that happening?
The historic basis of the English common law is one of pragmatism and precedence. Our law has been moulded over time to the shape of our English society. It represents the consensus of the English people over the generations. It has also been influenced by strong individual personalities, going back to the time of Henry II.
From the Revd James Konicki.
