@jimallthetime @BJ_Lancaster @DaveSmithSkvn @ColinLocke73 @JebBush @montie The reality, the majority of you are left leaning and despise brexiters and working class. You all need to be concerned about your employment security, we don't need 60+ radio stations. You will be streamlined with even just decriminalisation, let alone a subscription base.Paul Adamson @Adamskyj • 28 Feb 20:44 GMT
@jimallthetime @BJ_Lancaster @DaveSmithSkvn @ColinLocke73 @JebBush @montie Of course no propaganda and yet your employer decided to use footage of the Prime Minister at a live event placing a wreath down the wrong way...Paul Adamson @Adamskyj • 28 Feb 20:38 GMT

@montie They do - but obviously within the constraints of the law. You would I’m sure be glad if that if, say, a Corbyn Government had been exceeding its powers.B of the Bang @throughgate49 • 28 Feb 16:12 GMT
@ApolloCrude @JulieCarJ @montie If by that you mean the Human Rights Act that would be prior legislation.
It is difficult to see how they can't look to precedent, supposed intention and reasonableness in the absence of a written constitution, but we digress.
The problem is poorly drafted laws.

@montie The legal charity 'Plan B' brought the challenge to the court. The court ruled in its favour on a law brought in by the Tories. How is that "another unacceptable intervention by the court?" It's doing its job and the government will not appeal the decision because Boris........AlmannyMearns @almannysbunnet • 28 Feb 10:24 GMT
@pili_pala2 @montie @BorisJohnson The Government should not be able to be taken to court! Its up to government to make its choices, its up to the electorate to decide if they agree, or protest and lobby if they disagree. It is not up to unelected Judges. It really is that simple.JG @jgfinestrat • 28 Feb 09:54 GMT
@montie That's their proper role you pound shop fascist.Philip Woodward @philw1982 • 28 Feb 09:49 GMT
@montie The courts are even more important when our own govt seems to think it can break the law with impunity - NO you can'tWhat's done is done! 🏳️🇪🇺 @Steve1London • 28 Feb 09:37 GMT
@montie This isn’t an “unacceptable intervention”!!!!! This is the Court of Appeal doing its job. I find it alarming that you should shriek such nonsense - just another excuse to “have a pop” at the judges I suppose.Jenny Scott @jengoreinhardt • 28 Feb 09:29 GMT
@ApolloCrude @JulieCarJ @montie It has a responsibility, surely, to write sensible, clear and logical legislation.
Are you advocating putting a complex though poorly written bill to a public vote?
In the case of Heathrow, who votes? I live 200 miles away and couldn't give a toss.
@montie Well politicians shldnt create laws that they have no intention of following thinking it’s good for the papers then be surprised when said laws r upheld in court. That’s wat the courts do they interpret law nothing else.Paul Miller @MillerPaul1890 • 28 Feb 08:59 GMT
@montie There’s nothing difficult here, Thick. Politicians make the decisions, but if their decisions break the law they themselves have enacted, a court has to rescind the decision.Tom Freeman 🇪🇺🏳️ #FBPE @tomfree41571877 • 28 Feb 08:48 GMT

@ApolloCrude @andrewsibley15 @Colin_Lawson @JMPSimor @montie The courts are definitely not sovereign. They have said time and time again that Parliament is sovereign. Parliament can make and change laws. The govt is not sovereign. It has to follow the rules/laws that Plm has enacted. Recently the govt has not liked this.BeeLis @BeeLisG • 28 Feb 08:29 GMT
@DrSimEvans @montie Completely unrelated examples of recent controversial judgments at the Supreme Court and elsewhere may have heightened concerns about judicial overreach. But the Heathrow case is relatively straightforward - government simply failed to follow the rules it had imposed upon itself.Jeremy Nicholson @JeremyNic666 • 28 Feb 08:29 GMT
@montie There needs to be a vehicle to be able to stop governments. The people do not trust politicians and they have many good reasons for this. Think of the expenses they've raped from the public purse all these yearsmartin chainani @martinyemi • 28 Feb 07:47 GMT
@GreenJennyJones @montie People always seem to find to "unnacceptable" when a judge rules that X piece of law parliament is asking them to enforce contradicts another piece of law parliament is asking them to enforce. Funny!Kath @Kathlee39913254 • 28 Feb 07:35 GMT
@montie A democratically elected government passed the law that the Court applied yesterday.
This is how our constitution works. The appeal court didn't change that law, they just applied it.
Where are you going with this argument, you sound like a petulant teenager.
@montie You can't be trusted. Review of the judge's power is the biggest power grab since Henry VIIIAndrew Smith @snoopythepilot • 28 Feb 07:04 GMT
@montie Only if they comply with the law of the land. Period.Angela Koch @ImaginePlaces • 28 Feb 06:24 GMT
@montie I agree. We seem to be descending into a situation where political decisions are becoming subordinate to legal decisions. Politicians shouldn’t break the law, but neither should judges run the country.Quinten Niels @Quinten_Niels • 28 Feb 03:25 GMT
@TunnelKing @LordCFalconer @montie Apparently, that's how it is. Govt can't be arsed completing eval form., thus tying 3D web delivery up in knots for 2 decades, yeah guys, whatever, we're fine with you not doing your bit if you don't want to.
@montie You mess with the balance of powers at your peril. EVERY institution should be answerable to someone - and not just to the electorate every 5yrs. A lot of damage can be done in 5yrs.David #LeaveaLightOn #detoxifydemocracy #ProEU @Snyberwiz • 28 Feb 01:01 GMT
@montie Tim. Either read up a bit on the law or stop spouting this nonsensical drivel. You’re embarrassing yourself now.Chris Hallam @ChrisHallamLaw • 28 Feb 00:38 GMT
@montie That’s what judges do. If there was no uncertainty there’d be no need for judges. Case law also means less need for new law as society changes.Andrew Smith #Rejoiner @Andrew_F_Smith • 28 Feb 00:25 GMT
@montie If we can’t trust politicians to stay inside the law, then let’s just be extremely grateful for an independent judiciary!!!Smitti 🇪🇺🤺 @Smitti1855 • 28 Feb 00:02 GMT
