    "Court rules UK government acted unlawfully in giving contract to firm linked to Dominic Cummings

    The High Court has ruled that the UK government acted unlawfully in awarding a contract to a research firm linked to Dominic Cummings, the former chief adviser to prime minister Boris Johnson.

    The government awarded the six-month contract to test public opinion on government policy during the pandemic to Public First, a research company run by James Frayne and Rachel Wolf, in March 2020.

    In other news, the Johnson government intends to reduce or remove the power of Britain's courts to determine when the government breaks the law.

    But you can trust Prime Minister Johnson to ensure Minister's obey the rules.

    Can't you?

    No.

    "Matt Hancock faces calls to resign over damning High Court ruling on Covid: 'Has to go!'
    MATT HANCOCK is facing growing calls to resign as Britons insist the health secretary "has to go" in light of the High Court ruling that said he acted unlawfully by failing to publish the Government's Covid contracts."

    I can see why Johnson wants to prevent the British legal system from upholding British law.

    "Johnson's suspension of parliament unlawful, supreme court rules

    Judges rule unanimously that PM’s decision to prorogue parliament can be examined by judges"

    Is this the same court that ruled that illegals, illegal rapists and criminals can't be deported? Or the same court that ruled that accommodation that would satisfy typical fitness tests under other UK housing law was not in fact fit for illegals? Or the same court that lets people cause £1000's worth of criminal damage and vandalism (which would be unlawful under other UK law) but lets these people off because they "beleived" it was right to do?

    So no, no surprise

    has the duty and the power to uphold British Law in Britain.

    If you don't like that, I guess you'd better go to some other country

    If you can find one that will have you.

    The barracks would not "satisfy typical fitness tests".
    It was condemned by the NHS,Public Health England and Wales and Crown Premises Fire Safety Inspectorate.
    The Independent Chief Investigator of Borders and Immigration also condemned the barracks

    LOL. What a stupid answer.

    You don't agree that the court makes mistakes then? That say certain Irish people freed from prison were in fact guilty terrorists, or certain people freed only to rape and murder again were not originally murderers and rapists? Or that the "will of Parliament" is often misinterpreted by the Court and misconstrued by shrewd lawyers

    No, I suspect you just pick and choose which law and judgements are good or bad depending on how it sits with your twisted political ideology

    And yet the barracks passed the tests applied to social housing. Can you explain why?

    You don't agree that a politician can do wrong then? And act illegally?

    you are mistaken.

    I'm sure you have confused yourself.

    Your thread title "No surprise to anyone" seems to relate to a Court judgement ie 'Is anyone surprised at the court's decision?'. And then you are not prepared to discuss the fact that the Court can be and is frequently wrong in their decisions. And you then go on to give stupid responses (not reasoned argument) and random quotes.

    I get the impression that you can't debate a proposition, even ones that you put forward!

    The Owner of the site in 2014, : “Much of the land owned by the MoD has become surplus to requirements as the existing buildings no longer meet acceptable standards for accommodation, offices and storage.

    “Built to a standardised layout and using common construction techniques of the time, these buildings were never intended for long-term use.

    “Converting these purpose-built barrack blocks into residential dwellings is regarded as an unsuitable approach, primarily due to the potential constraints arising from their reuse; either allocating the building entirely as a single unit, or subdividing existing spaces into multiple and undersized units.”

    They had not been occupied in 15 years.
    My friend has been in the social housing "industry" for 40 years and there was no way they'd have been allowed in the private sector - or council. She said that enforcement would have been a likely outcome

    He gets about that Cummins bloke. Labour hate figure one day, Labour champion 'honest Dom' whistle blower the next, and back to labour hate figure again.

    that's interesting.

    I haven't seen anyone claim that Cummings is a decent, honest, trustworthy man.

    Show me.
