“Parliament may pass a law which is repugnant against common right and reason or impossible to perform. In which case the Common Law will intercede and strike it down”
Around 400 years later we have Lord Bingham former Master of the Rolls saying the complete opposite:
“There are three main sources (of law TA) which call for consideration. They are, first, laws mde by Parlament in duly enacted Acts of Parliament, to which must be added statutory instruments made by ministers or others in the exercise of authority conferred by Act of Parliament. Secondly, there is judge-made law, the decisions made by English. or Welsh, Scots, or Northern Irish judges laying down rules to govern their decisions in particular cases. The law so made, the common law, can be overidden by statute, but it has a long history, it has not lost its virility with age and in certain foelds of law it is the dominant source. The third source is the law of the European Union, of which I say more below. It has effect here and overrides both statute and common law in the ever growing areas to which it applies and is now an mportant source of law.”
Lord Bingham - The Rule of Law
So Bingham insist that Parliamentary statutes over ride not only the Common Law but our Constitutional Laws. This is complete nonsense statutes are not sacrosanct they get repealed, our Constitutional Laws are set in stone they are there for ever.
So what caused this complete inversion two things one the teachings of A.V Dicey who was a Jurist and taught Juriesprudence at Oxford. The other was the fact that someone had hidden this important claim found in Article 9 of the Bill of Rights 1689 which limites the powers of Parliament.Read more ›
