Last week, on 14 May, the Immigration Act 2014 was given Royal Assent. According to the Home Office, the Act will 'ensure our immigration system is fairer to British citizens and legitimate migrants,' while being 'tougher on those with no right to be here.' Indeed, Home Secretary Theresa May was explicit when the Bill was introduced that its purpose is to create a 'hostile environment' for migrants in the UK. Unsurprisingly, then, the passage of the Bill has been controversial and heavily criticised. Pressure groups such as Migrants' Rights Network have called the Bill unfair and unworkable, while Movement Against Xenophobia damningly crowned it as 'the most racist and discriminatory piece of legislation' seen in many years.

Thai Military Coup Day 2 9.10PM: For all the people messaging me regarding my safety, let me assure you the city is the SAFEST it has been all year, just a lot less user friendly. We have had anarchy in this town all year with protestors taking over intersections, grenade attacks at depressingly regular intervals and well over 20 people dead. So the city is now safe if one plays by the rules, just not much fun! 9.00PM Interesting snippet: the coup and resulting government have not yet received royal assent but documents have been dispatched for signing apparently. 8.30PM: Traffic gridlocked across Bangkok once again as people try to beat the curfew home. Thai TV has been partially restored: True is only carrying the military channel 5 across all its 200 channels in Bangkok but Channel 3 and others appear to be broadcasting normally via standard digital. The major resistance to the coup so far appears to be an anti-coup demonstration numbering 300 people or so at MBK which has now dispersed. Yingluck and o ...

Courtesy of Neil Pickett; Let's go to a Law Dictionary, and look up a definition for The Common Law. It really doesn't matter which one, because they all say pretty much the same thing, such as: "That part of the law of England formulated, developed and administered by the old common law courts based originally on the common customs of the country, and unwritten. It is opposed to equity (the body of rules administered by the Court of Chancery); to statute law (the law laid down by Acts of Parliament); to special law (the law administered by special courts such as ecclesiastical law and the law merchant); and the civil law (the law of Rome). It is 'the commonsense of the community, crystalised and formulated by our forefathers'. It is not local law, nor the result of legislation". the word lawful specifically applies to actions or omissions which are just and fair, where as the word legal refers specifically to actions or omissions which are in accord with the legislation, be they just and fair or otherwis ...

Changes to the NHS data-sharing scheme now make it fit for purpose, writes NHS England’s information director Tim Kelsey Last week the Care Bill received Royal Assent and became the Care Act and for the first time we have a clear, statutory basis for sharing information that will enable us to track patient outcomes across health and care services. To me this feels like a real milestone for patients, clinicians and researchers. The new law means that a person’s data can only be shared and analysed when there is a benefit to healthcare, never for other purposes, and that all uses will be scrutinised with full transparency by an independent statutory body. In addition, there will now be a legal basis for people to stop their data being shared if they wish to. These legal safeguards were introduced as a direct result of concerns about the safeguards around data sharing in the NHS raised in light of the care.data initiative. Care.data is a programme to link data across all care services, starting with hosp ...
