We don't have separate courts of equity and courts of law. They're fused together. So it's clear you're not knowledgeable about this area and need to do your reading.(Original post by RedLuxemburg)
I supported the constitutional reform act 2005, i just don't think we need this act.
one hundred and forty eight years spread over three centuries and the system still worked when we have the courts of equity and the courts of common law.

The idea here, is that although it is capable of repeal by simple majority, no government would have enough political capital, in practice, to get away with such a repeal without facing a reprisal at the ballot box.
Don’t see how this limits parliamentary sovereignty when judges would still be unable to strike down any act of parliament under the terms of this bill, all it does, is reaffirm the independence of the judiciary as arbiters and interpreters; strengthening our (really quite weak) checks and balances on the power of the state in this country.
If you want a parliamentary review process, get rid of the 2/3 majority requirement. Alternatively, get rid of it entirely. Either is far more sensible than bloody supermajorities.
