Cable attacks City ‘spivs and gamblers’

In a rousing speech to round off the first Liberal Democrat conference since they entered coalition, Mr Cable condemned the “outrageous” scale of bank bonuses after the credit crunch.

Nice to see a bit of completely meaningless bollocks at the Lib-Dem conference… just like old times.

With regret… I have had to pull out of The Commonwealth Games in India – a bar I was going to spend my time at for the duration of the games has just collapsed…..

The UK Human Rights Blog was launched on 31 March 2010 and is written by members of 1 Crown Office Row barristers’ Chambers.

For 10 years, 1 Crown Office Row, the Chambers of Philip Havers QC, have run the widely acclaimed free Human Rights Update service. The new UK Human Rights Blog aims to provide a free, comprehensive and balanced legal update service.

Our intention is not to campaign on any particular issue, but rather to present both sides of the argument on issues which are often highly controversial.

This excellent blog and resource on human rights law is edited by a team from 1 Crown Office Row – Angus McCullough QC, Rosalind English and Adam Wagner.  The blog supplements the definitive FREE resource (You do have to register to receive it)

There aren’t that many detailed law blogs in the UK – although the list is growing, pleasingly.  Whether you are a practitioner, academic, student or just have an interest in this field –  this must be the first port of call for exposition, explanation and access to UK Human Rights law – and, best of all, it is FREE!

Please have a look at the blog
