The chief whip is responsible for organising a party's MPs in Parliament so they vote the way the party wants them to, and can discipline any who do not follow the party line.
For me, the knowledge of the structure of things about a subject is wonderful. I would imagine most chavs out there wouldnt have a clue what the Chief Whip is.
Knowledge really is power.
I would imagine that many people dont know about the new UK Supreme Court. Established in 2009. It is the final court of appeal for Civil and Criminal cases from England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It is in the old Middlesex Guildhall in Westminster, near the Palace of Westminster. It was created to assume the Judicial authority that was once held by the House of Lords!
I enjoy my researches. It would be interesting to research what will happen after Brexit in terms of Human Rights and other issues that ended up in the EU Courts. Where does the UK stand in terms of EU Law after Brexit?
From what I have understood about the UK Supreme Court, I believe that they cannot rewrite Legislation, but must refer it to the Houses of Parliament. Which is a good idea, when you understand about such things.
Note, It is not the Supreme Court for such things in Scotland!
From what I understand from listening to Lady Hale, is that it is an Appeal Court. They do not hear the winesses, they dont decide who is telling the truth, they dont decide what the facts are. The parties come to the Court with a set of facts and ask the Supreme Court what the Law is.
