Jury's under attack

Thanks to Laban Tall's Blog for pointing out this latest idea on Juries:

Only enlightened people with correct views should serve. This initiative is a valuable first step towards that end.

The source?

BBC NEWS | UK | Jury deliberations may be studied

Deliberations of juries in criminal trials could be studied, under plans being considered by the government.
Research could look at the key factors behind a verdict and whether there was any evidence of gender or racial bias.

So if you get sent down - get your brief to claim you was discriminated against by the Jury and suddenly a bunch of Human Rights Lawyers take over from the "Ordinary People".
I also expect that Juries will be required to make an undertaking that they aren't racist, homophobic etc etc before being allowed to judge. This the thin edge of a very large wedge.

This ties in with an interesting book I was sent the review copy of.
WHY THE D'ESTAING CONSTITUTION IS THE ANTITHESIS OF DEMOCRACY. by Kenn d'Oudney

He lays out the importance of Juries and "the special virtue of Magna Carta and the U.S. Constitution: they emplace Trial by Jury to protect citizens for all time from unjust laws and arbitrary government." And how the EU referendum threatens this.

I wish I could cut and paste a lot of his interesting arguements but I can't - you need to contact him to get your own copy - for a reasonable amount - I haven't got a website or email or even a phone number to give out (if he reads this please give me one) so it is snail mail to:

SYNOPSIS.

An inspiring erudite work of incontrovertible argument, with quotations in support by presidents, prime ministers, chief justices, judges, learned lawyers and authors.

This information is essential to the protection, well-being and happiness of every citizen. Constitutions comprise laws intended to control governments, judiciary and state employees so that they operate lawfully in respect of the people. This book explains how the inherent rights of the people in the U.K. which are already constitutionally, legally established, will be annihilated if the d’Estaing constitution proposed for Europe is adopted.

The book exposes the deceit by which d’Estaing and committee claim to protect rights and democracy whilst their duplicitously-worded constitution actually installs the Stalinist and fascist method of population-control, to form the statist régime of the new Europe.

This book is that rare phenomenon: a book on law which is gripping and stimulating for both the specialist and the everyday reader. After perusing this book, readers are enabled to perceive the ignorance or special self-interest of every person who speaks in favour of adoption of the anti-democratic d'Estaing ‘constitution’.
