    I know Conservatives believe that the original interpretation has now been perverted since they can't deport criminals who have a family, so now they want a bill of rights (the deportation is just one reason, but 'perversion of meaning' is why)
    Ahhh yeah I get that, maybe they should have thought of that before when they had the chance to input 😉

    how would you answer '"the uk constitution is no longer fit for purpose". discuss'?
    say weakness of constitution + plus impacts of EU.
    then could say however reforms since 1997 have made it fit for purpose

    Heya guys, been lurking here for a while ...

    2 questions: What do u think will be on each? Parliament/Judiciary ESSAY and Constitution/PM and Cabinet SOURCE? or vice versa..

    Also 'How representative is Parliament?' - Is this asking all about the make up of Parliament - ethnicities, sexuality, gender, etc ? Or how it represents us as the people?

    What type of question about the British bill of rights could come up and how would I answer it?
    It could be like 'to what extent is there a need for a British bill of rights' and you could argue for and against
    Some against points could be the executive should not get I decide our right, echr is fine as our government can't manipulate it whereas if they had a British bir they could
    It would be a question of would it be entrenched-guaranteed
    Echr does a good job as it is humans are humans why is there a need for a specific British bor

    For:
    Could stop prisoners or terrorists from using the echr to get out of their sentence of deportation etc
    We would be able to reform it
    Supreme Court would be the highest court again
    It would be something Brits would know

    I don't know much else as I'm not doing judiciary but it's a start for you

    'Human rights is not functional - it should be replaced by a British Bill of Rights'
    Do you agree?

    1) Works against state interest -> deporting
    2) Meaning of HR has been peverted - written 60 years ago
    3) Allows too much judicial activism

    Counter those points:
    First point is dubious -> prevented Abu Qatada from being deported and being killed
    Second point -> it is meant to be vague as society changes
    Third point -> coined judicial activism but it's just judges holding govt to account -> need a separation of powers -> already for authoritarian rubbish happened like Terrorism act, don't need more

    Look back on through the pages we've put down fully the predictions for pm parliament and cabinet but have no idea about the source as it depends on the source that's given!
    Representative means both yeah including the commons and the lords
    If you can't find the predictions I'll go back and sit down and write them after I have a shower

    How effectively are civil liberties protected was last years, so Human rights, how can judiciary check power of govt/conflict between judiciary and govt...I'd revise should judges be responsible for civil liberties just incase but those 4 definitely.

    anyone know of points to make saying that the judiciary is not independent? neutrality is easy, but I genuinely don't think there is anything to suggest the judiciary is not independent
    The process of appointments still involves some input from both the prime minister and Lord Chancellor. They could still sway the decision of a judge to what suits them which effectively means that government is imposing on the judiciary.

    I don't know just seems like repetition of last years question which was 'To what extent does Parliament remain sovereign' or something. For unitary constitution/federal that's just regarding devolution which just seems too narrow for a 40 mark question
    i doubt that because that was the 25 marker in the 2015 paper..

    Wait what if we helped to write it in the first what is the point of writing a British bill of rights....it's almost like they're trying to fool us

    The ECHR was brought in by the Council of Europe - which is NOT the European Union. We were a part of the CofE before we joined the European Economic Community (which later became the EU). The part about part of joining up meaning accepting the ECHR was brought in relatively recently, way after we were already a member.

    how safe do you think it is to only learn two topics since i have a day to revise, is there any chance that constitution and parliament could be both source or both 40 markers?
