Just had this email from Liberty Human Rights
The Government is attempting to cut off important avenues of accountability – in Parliament, through the courts, on the streets, and in society.
Ministers are sidelining our elected MPs when making and changing laws. COVID regulations have been created and amended upwards of 425 times, with many coming into force before or on the same day MPs first had a chance to debate them.
Right now, people can challenge public authorities in court when they act unlawfully.
This is known as ‘judicial review’.
During the pandemic, some disabled people were able to use judicial review to protect their rights, while legal action taken by two doctors over a lack of personal protective equipment (PPE) prompted major changes. But the Government is now trying to make it harder for people to challenge injustice in court.
It has set up a panel to look into weakening our Human Rights Act. The Human Rights Act enables people to enforce their rights in British courts if public authorities don’t respect them. If we can’t enforce our rights, they will become meaningless.
The new Police, Crime, Sentencing, and Courts Bill – known as the Police Crackdown Bill – will criminalize people who take to the streets to have their voices heard and give police more powers to shut down protests.
And ministers are cutting off people’s access to information by regularly screening and rejecting freedom of information requests by journalists and campaigning organizations, and boycotting popular news programs.
The Government is hiding from accountability at every turn.
Being able to stand up to power and challenge injustice is at the heart of our democracy. We must not let the Government become untouchable

I,post this here as well ,thousands out in Brighton, , thousands Fantastic ...
This is a great video. This is how it works. Not court cases, judges are all corrupted through bribes, but the people. When people say no, means no. This and protests is how you fight a war back.
I agree, that's the way forward, just few thousands a day is enough. Even then, soon the few thousands daily will increase in a lot more than that. Polititians are just laughing at us. It is like we are hypnotised with zero reaction.
