PM moves to limit the right to a judicial review

IT was a key tool used in the battle over
Southampton’s port, the threat to the children’s
heart unit and the thorny issue of
putting fluoride into the city’s water, but yesterday ministers announced
plans to curb the right to a judicial review,
claiming it was a burden on public services
and holding back economic growth.
Judicial review is a way of challenging
official decisions in the courts.
Prime Minister David Cameron said
opponents of planning decisions and policies
would be given less time to apply for
judicial review, face higher fees and see the
chances to appeal halved.
Justice Secretary Chris Grayling said
they often led to unnecessary costs and
lengthy delays and pledged to weed out
frivolous and unmeritorious cases.
Numbers of judicial reviews lodged have
risen from 160 in 1975 to about 11,000 last
year. Just such an application by Hutchison
threatened the £150m expansion of
Southampton’s port. The project had to be
halted while objections on environmental
grounds were dealt with.
Southampton Itchen MP John Denham
said: “I think judicial reviews can be justified
when the public feel they have been
badly treated but it cannot be used to drag
things out. The situation we got into with
the port was ludicrous and if we can do
something about it, I would support it.”

What this Tory Government really means is that they want to dictate the terms, and block off any legal terms that the ordinary people might have to fight back to some thing they do not want.

I refer you to the analysis by "Full Fact" of the PM's latest campaign against what few chances we have left to challenge overbearing government:

Those who believe this move will only help a benign Coalition government to avoid troublemakers slowing down their policies should remember that a change in this law will be available also to subsequent regimes who may be less to your taste.

Perhaps you'd prefer the UK to follow the practices of North Korea or China when it comes to consulting citizens about change? Can I expect to see a reply exposing these countries as fascist states who were never anything to do with socialism?

Epigenetics: Fluoridation.. What you Eat/Drink can turn your genes on or off


-



BBC HORIZON - EPIGENETICS - THE GHOST IN YOUR GENES.

published on 29 Aug 2012.

Biology stands on the brink of a shift in the understanding of inheritance. The discovery of epigenetics -- hidden influences upon the genes -- could affect every aspect of our lives.

EPIGENETICS ADDS A WHOLE NEW LAYER TO GENES BEYOND THE DNA. IT PROPOSES A CONTROL SYSTEM OF 'SWITCHES' THAT TURN GENES ON OR OFF -- AND SUGGESTS THAT THINGS PEOPLE EXPERIENCE, LIKE NUTRITION AND STRESS, CAN CONTROL THESE SWITCHES AND CAUSE HERITABLE EFFECTS IN HUMANS.

research has demonstrated that genes and the environment are not mutually exclusive but are inextricably intertwined, one affecting the other.

The idea that inheritance is not just about which genes you inherit but whether these are switched on or off is a whole new frontier in biology. It raises questions with huge implications, and means the search will be on to find what sort of environmental effects can affect these switches.

It would appear that you have not read the article and do not understand southy's comment.

The Tory-led government intend to close a democratic process that is currently available to us all.

For example, those that want a Judicial Review of the process that will enable fluoride to be added to the local water, will be denied it.

By denying the public this right, this Tory-led government is bringing us more into line with North Korea and China who also deny their people this right.

Maybe Cameron is trying to model himself on Stalin or Chairman Mao.

I think you'll find that the proposal is for reducing or streamlining the existing systems so that they can't be used as a tactic for delaying. How long has the UK been looking at extra airport capacity in the south east? Virtually every single suggestion for provision of power is defeated by NIMBY groups, how long was the Newbury bypass or the Twyford cutting delayed, how long has the proposed bypass around Lyndhurst been dragging on? Systems are in place to ensure everyone has a fair say but pressure groups with an agenda manipulate the same rules to prevent things happening even though the greater good will be served with inconvenience to a minority. Within a very short space of time the chickens will come home to roost with power shortages and won't there be a wail of anguish when the lights go out or the price rockets but at least everyone will have had the opportunity to delay progress by having their say.

I think you'll find there was no judicial review process involved in either the Twyford Down or Newbury bypass cases so that system cannot be blamed for the fact that tens of thousands of people objected to these schemes but, in the end, had to give way to the "greater good".
Any reference to foreign regimes is irelevant (and comes close to satisfying Godwin's law, do you think?).

Inform Al.. Here's an Aluminum/Fluoride double whammy.

-


We learn today from Britain’s chief medical officer, PROFESSOR DAME SALLY DAVIES that deaths in the U.K from liver disease have increased by a fifth between 2000 and 2009, while they have dropped by around the same amount in most comparable European countries.


It's well known that the aluminium in beer kegs/cans is none too healthy for your kidney/liver.


Inform Al, If as you say some beers are brewed using fluoridated water.


I'd say aluminum and fluoride mixed in a can has the makings of a lethal combo.


I'd also say Britain’s chief medical officer, PROFESSOR DAME SALLY DAVIES has more than a few questions on the safety of water Fluoridation to answer.

Re: Birmingham: under-fives treated for Rickets.. Blame Diet & lack of Sunlight or Fluoridation?

VITAMIN SCHEME LAUNCHED AS RICKETS RETURNS TO BIRMINGHAM.

24 Feb 2011.

CHILDREN AND PREGNANT WOMEN across Birmingham are being targeted in a free vitamin drive after the re-emergence of a Victorian poverty disease.

Cases of rickets in the city have surged in the past year – caused by a severe lack of Vitamin D and not getting enough exposure to sunlight.

Modern day lifestyles of unhealthy food and also smothering children in sunscreen is being blamed for the disease, thought to have been eradicated 50 years ago, rearing its head.

BRITAIN'S CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER, DAME SALLY DAVIES, WARNED PARENTS TO GIVE ALL UNDER-FIVES VITAMIN D SUPPLEMENTS FOR DISEASES SUCH AS RICKETS LAST MONTH.

Epigenetics: Fluoridation advocates take away our right to strive for a better world.

Epigenetics tells us that from the beginning of time are genes have been constantly pursuing a safer, healthier, less toxic world.


my unqualified view is, at best Fluoridation advocates are taking away our right to strive for a better world at worst turning back/destroying the human clock.

EPIGENETICS: YOU ARE WHAT YOUR GRANDPARENTS ATE.

Some chemicals may leave people vulnerable to diseases like cancer and diabetes, not by mutating genes but by turning them off or on at the wrong time. according to both animal and human studies what a pregnant mother eats and the chemicals she is exposed to can affect her offspring these changes, in turn, CAN BE PASSED ON TO THE NEXT GENERATIONS.

Exposure to gene-altering substances, particularly in the womb and shortly after birth, "can lead to increased susceptibility to disease," said Linda S. Birnbaum, who was named director of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and of the National Toxicology Program in December. "THE SUSCEPTIBILITY PERSISTS LONG AFTER THE EXPOSURE IS GONE, EVEN DECADES LATER. Glands, organs, and systems can be permanently altered."

SHA Massaging Cancer Stats/Figures.. North-South Cancer Treatment Divide
- .

How bad is this ?


Going by the below report how could anyone not believe.. SHA have been massaging the North-South Cancer Stats/Figures while at the same time approving fluoridation on the grounds that the health benefits (SHA says no stats to prove otherwise) outweigh all of the arguments against water fluoridation.

I've no reason not to believe the below report.. if true all the members of SHA's board should be arrested.

-


A REPORT BY THE RARER CANCERS FOUNDATION FOUND THAT

• Over the course of its lifetime, the Cancer Drugs Fund has the potential to benefit over 30,000 patients, enabling them to gain access to 34 drugs which would not otherwise be available on the NHS.

• More than 2,500 cancer patients have had treatment provided through the Cfud. It also shows that 187 patients were denied access to life-extending treatment between October 2010 and March 2011. THIS IS DESPITE THE FACT THAT STRATEGIC HEALTH AUTHORITIES (SHAS) HAD A COMBINED CANCER DRUGS FUND UNDERSPEND OF £22.5 MILLION AT THE END OF MARCH 2011.

• The fund is enabling patients to access up to 34 treatments which otherwise would not have been routinely available on the NHS. Patients with bowel, kidney and blood cancers have been amongst the most significant beneficiaries of the fund.

• Shockingly the report also revealed a north-south divide in approvals, with SHAs in the south of England approving a lower proportion of applications. FOR EXAMPLE, NHS SOUTH CENTRAL APPROVED APPROXIMATELY 75% OF APPLICATIONS WHEREAS NHS NORTH EAST APPROVED EVERY APPLICATION IT RECEIVED.
