Shrugging off state law/justice - the sovereignty of a jury of your peers to nullify any/all law.

Jury activism must put an end to judicial activism and an end to stupid politically correct, victim-less crime.

We all like to pretend to believe that out parliament is sovereign (maybe some do genuinely believe this to be true!), however as long as we have trial by jury this is not actually true.

As long as we have jury trials, no law can be enforced other than by the consent of the jury - they have absolute authority to decide whether an accused man deserves to be punished or walk free. It is long established in English law that the jury is entirely unaccountable to the judicial system for their decisions. However courts, judges, the legal system and politicians are very keen to end this, an Englishman's ultimate appeal to natural justice as seen by a jury of his peers. It is vital that no free man lets this liberty go - only a jury can ultimately decide if you have done wrong - anyone else is simply guessing what a jury may say and is simply crystal ball gazing.

No juries decision is ever perverse - it is always correct (based on the information presented) if it appears flawed, then the flaw is in the person observing it!

Jury activism must put an end to judicial activism and an end to stupid politically correct, victim-less crime.

  1. Probably apocryphal enough to be true -
    An Irish jury had just delivered a very perverse not guilty verdict.

    The judge, considerably put out, addressed the foreman
    "I am not allowed to enquire the secrets of the jury room. But in view of this remarkable verdict, could you give just a hint as to how you arrived at it.?"
    " Insanity, Your Honour" replied the foreman.
    "What?" exclaimed His Honour " All of you?"
