The disgraceful games of semantics. Trying to massage words
into different class concepts
Crown mischief in short, is now Council mischief in tort.
With the abuse part of the Crown Prerogative thwarted by the Bill of Rights in 1688-9, and the similarity between fines and civil penalties, being blurred by false emphasis as a distinction suggesting they belong to difference classes, the prerogative abuse that WAS thwarted is now very much alive in England today.
Parliament; crowning itself with 'parliament is sovereign' re-using those powers by conferring the prerogative on its children of some hundred councils, giving them the appeals process to control or NOT, their own mischief and abuses, the Bill of Rights is now more important and more relevant than ever before.
The only difference is that when the prerogative was abused against a few wealthy; prior to the 17th century, it is now abused against the majority of weaker members of society with ring fenced semantic schemes and procedural rules in tribunals permitting councils to compromise the integrity of each judicial body it comes in contact with.
The Bill of Rights is an argument proper for the manifesto of a party of integrity to seek a mandate for election to the next parliament. Very little other parts of a manifesto are relevant to the similarities in ideologies that make little difference to the lives of the ordinary people.
The Bill of Rights granted in principle, FREEDOM from fines and forfeitures, ( civil penalties and distraints ) to all individuals, BEFORE conviction at a trial or hearing.
