Not that I frequent CH...

But Dr. Crippen's recent post caught my eye:

Now the Home Secretary is taking statutory powers not only to suspend habeus corpus but to stop coroners’ courts sitting with juries. She is likely to exercise these powers in the case of terrorist deaths.

Why would the government not want a jury to decide the Jean Charles de Menezes case?

Another assault on civil liberties by a government which seems to not want to re-build the trust from the citizens it supposedly represents.

If it ain't broke, Jacqui Smith, don't break it.

Unless a broken judicial system would let you do more of the things you want to do, obviously.
