The war on law.

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark*. Whether by accident or design the Coalition is waging a war on law; not just judicial review. The Coalition is eroding the rule of law, undermining the protection of human rights and ushering in questionable changes to our system of justice. The evidence abounds. Taken separately these government policies would be a matter of grave concern. But together they form a picture that is most alarming, and should give us all pause for thought.

Really good piece.
