Allow the public to elect judges and magistrates

Comment 25th August 2010

Every 4 years we hold judicial elections, where the public, get to choose our law-lords, judges & magistrates, by election.

This will be identical to a general election, but the candidates will have no polotical ties.

furthermore, let us have our judiciary wholly accountable to a council of people, persons chosen at random every 4 years, to whom our judges will have to explain their actions, reasoning and sentencing, and to give them powers to override any judicial decision, including those of courts abroad, for example the european court of human rights, which has consistently proven to be biased against the interests of the Great British people.

Why does this matter?

This is now the 21st century and for millenia our judicial system and our elected government have been held hostage to the whims of our legal professions.

It is intolerable that in a democratic country that a small tiny cabal of individuals have the power to override the policies of democratically governments, release criminals with nothing more than a slap on the wrist, to further their own interests, that these individuals should only be accountable to themselves.

We need a democratic and accountable judiciary, and only by having these individuals directly answerable to the general public will we get a judicial system fit for the people of 21st century Britain.
