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.

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 ...

COPIED FROM Anaphylaxis Canada web page: Many of you may already be aware of a statement made last month by the Honourable Liz Sandals, Minister of Education, to the Ontario Legislature. The Minister announced the launch of a needs assessment to be conducted by Ophea (the Ontario Physical and Health Education Association), that will review how medical conditions of students – such as anaphylaxis, asthma, diabetes, and epilepsy – are being managed in publicly-funded schools in Ontario. You can read the statement in the Hansard transcripts and also Ophea’s press release about this initiative. We are pleased to see that the government is looking at health conditions that affect children and how our children can be better supported in our schools. However, we are disappointed that there is no mention of Sabrina’s Law, and we are concerned about what this may mean for its future status. The Private Members Bill, sponsored by Dave Levac, Bill 3: An act to protect anaphylactic pupils, was passed into Roy ...

On this date in 1870... ...after the Red River Rebellion (led by Louis Riel), the concerns of the Metis population and the white settlers in the Red River Valley were taken into account with the Federal government passing the Manitoba Act and received Royal Assent. Therefore, the fifth province of Canada, Manitoba (an Assiniboine word meaning "lake on the prairie" or an Ojibway word meaning "the narrows of the Great Spirit Manitou") entered Confederation. However, the government did not keep its promise to provide land for the Metis so they fled west (where tempers would flare again under Louis Riel's leadership and spawn another rebellion fifteen years later). In 1870, it was a small province only 1/18 its present size. A land dispute between Ontario and Manitoba saw most of its prospective territory given to Northern Ontario in 1889. However, by 1912, Manitoba grew to its current size as territory was carved out of the North West Territories and added to the province.

Constitutional monarchy Constitutional monarchy is a form of democratic government in which a nonpolitical monarch acts as head of state within the boundaries of a constitution, whether written or unwritten. While the monarch may hold formal reserve powers and while government officially takes place in the monarch's name, they do not set public policy or choose political leaders. Political scientist Vernon Bogdanor, paraphrasing Thomas Macaulay, has defined a constitutional monarch as "a sovereign who reigns but does not rule." This form of government differs from absolute monarchy, in which the monarch controls political decision-making and is not effectively bound by a constitutional order. Constitutional monarchies are sometimes referred to as limited monarchies, crowned republics or parliamentary monarchies. In additional to acting as a visible symbol of national unity, a constitutional monarch may hold formal powers such as dissolving parliament or giving Royal Assent to legislation. However, the exe ...
Feature: The top 16 stories that changed LGBT life in the UK in 2013 December the 22nd, 2013. By: Joseph Patrick McCormick Source: Pinknews.co.uk As 2013 draws to a close, PinkNews looks back at the stories which have had the biggest impact on the life of LGBT people in the UK in the last year (and some which just raised a lot of eyebrows). While we cannot claim a thoroughly scientific approach to the rankings, the stories are ordered through a combination of how widely read they were, how much debate they provoked, and our own editorial judgement as to the effect they will have on LGBT life. We already brought you thirteen stories which meant 2013 was the biggest year for coming out so far, so now in no particular order, we bring you another thirteen we have chosen as the top UK stories.

. Executive Summary This report examines the role played by British intelligence and the British Army in collusion with the IRA and other paramilitary terrorist organizations in supplying weapons and explosives, allowing bombings to go forward, and even committing murder in the name of “fighting terror.” 2. The Original IRA The original Irish Republican Army (IRA) was in existence from 1916 until 1923. It was created at a time when the Irish were demanding Home Rule. The Government of Ireland Act was passed in 1914, giving Royal Assent to a form of Irish provisional government. However, its implementation was postponed until after World War I. The Easter Rising The Easter Rising occurred in Dublin on April 24, 1916, where Irish rebels demanding independence fought for a week, ultimately surrendering. The British oppressed the rebellion with 15,000 troops, and roughly 500 people were killed, half of which were innocent bystanders. The IRA and Sinn Féin On October 27, 1917, the Irish Volunteers, who we ...
First there was standard time.   For millennia, people have measured time based on the position of the sun -it was noon when the sun was highest in the sky. Sundials were used well into the Middle Ages, when mechanical clocks began to appear. Cities would set their town clock by measuring the position of the sun, but every city would be on a slightly different time.   The time indicated by the apparent sun on a sun dial is called Apparent Solar Time, or true local time. The time shown by the fictitious sun is called Mean Solar Time, or local mean time when measured in terms of any longitudinal meridian.   Standard time begins in Britain   Britain was the first country to set the time throughout a region to one standard time. The railways cared most about the inconsistencies of localmean time, and they forced a uniform time on the country. The original idea was credited to Dr. William Hyde Wollaston (1766-1828) and was popularized by Abraham Follett Osler (1808-1903). The first railway to adopt London ...

Deadline for application of schools reform put back to five years SPAIN'S ministry of education has agreed to put of parts of its controversial schools reform for five years, until 2017, in light of mass countrywide protests and classroom strikes. Instead of coming into effect for the start of the academic year 2015-2016, it will now wait until that of 2017-2018. Among the measures agreed upon by the PP government in response to clamouring for radical amendments to the new law by the opposition is the fact that religious education (RE) will not be compulsory for any student – although it will indeed be compulsory for schools to teach it, from a Catholic viewpoint. This is in accordance with an agreement the Spanish State allegedly has with the Vatican, or Holy See, but Spain has refused to make RE a mandatory subject for all students as the Episcopal Conference demands. And the issue of bilingual education in regions with a co-official language in addition to Castilian Spanish has been modified. Regiona ...
