"How effectively did the Liberal Government (1906-14) deal with the problem of poverty?"
Higher Exam Essay- Higher "How effectively did the Liberal Government (1906-14) deal with the problem of poverty?" The Liberal Government dealt with poverty to a certain extent although they did not overcome the problem completely. The Liberals made changes that covered areas involving children, old age pensioners, the sick and the unemployed. The pace of the reform was slower in progressing with the "old liberals" than the "new liberals." The "new liberals" initiated help towards the problems of poverty in which the Booth and Rowntree had investigated. In 1906 when the Liberals came into power there was a considerable amount of pressure for change. The social investigations of Booth and Rowntree identified the extent of poverty, which clearly shows the beginning of the pressures. The Boer War was another event, which highlighted the poverty in Britain. The medical inspections during this time revealed the poor heath of the working class. (25% of volunteers were unsuitable and in many districts in Manchester 2/3 volunteers were rejected.) This encouraged people to support reform. The growth of the Labour party proved to be a threat to the Liberals as there was a growth in socialism. In addition this prompted the Liberals to push for state intervention, which would hopefully draw support from the Labour Party. When the "new" Liberals came into power this caused much
"If the Constitution is the source of governmental power, and the judiciary interprets the Constitution, then the judiciary is the most powerful branch of government" Discuss.
"If the Constitution is the source of governmental power, and the judiciary interprets the Constitution, then the judiciary is the most powerful branch of government" Discuss In answering this question I will first paint a picture of the power that the court holds, and decide whether this is governmental power. Then I will outline the balances that the court must maintain in its decision making and therefore the checks on its actions as an institution that governs America. "Scarcely any political question arises that is not resolved sooner or later into a judicial question." (Alexis de Tocqueville Democracy in America) If we take Tocqueville on his word then the American Judiciary truly is in a powerful position. The reason for much of this power is the principle of judicial review of the actions of the executive and legislative branches of government at both state and federal level against a written constitution and the power therefore to 'interpret' the constitution. The power of judicial review over the states is laid down in the supremacy clause of article III and the power of judicial review over the other two branches of the federal government is implied in the constitution and by several but by no means all of the founding fathers: "A constitution is, in fact, and must be regarded by the judges, as a fundamental law. It therefore belongs to them to ascertain its
"If you want to make enemies, try to change something".
"If you want to make enemies, try to change something" I have not ridden a bicycle in many years. I rode eight miles on a bike this weekend. My left ankle is very sore, my back is sore and I have black along with blue marks on both of my very tender arches. Consequently, of my changing an exercising habit, I am experiencing pain. Change often causes pain, not only physically, but also emotionally. The same is true for you and the same is true for organizations. Thus, we should not be surprised when change causes pain, nor when people choose to be enemies rather than face the pain of change. At the same time, in today's rapid-paced environment, it is important for us to understand that the future is not based upon the past but rather upon our ability to adapt to the continuously changing present. We must therefore continuously improve or we will fail. Thus, a quote that emphasises the notion in relation to ' change' is; "If you want to make enemies, try to change something" This quote emphasises how any hostile group of people; have different perspective in relation to my occupation, "he viewed lawyers as the real enemy." "This storm is certainly a change for the worse," I said, standing outside the Supreme Court of NSW. I felt incredible in deep down inside. As I was walking towards the gigantic door of the Court, an unexpected intense voice called my name " hey Uzzi
"The Chamberlain Case highlighted many of the weaknesses in the Australian legal system
"The Chamberlain Case highlighted many of the weaknesses in the Australian legal system." Do you agree with this assessment? Give examples to illustrate your answer. The case of Lindy Chamberlain was very significant in Australian legal history as it involved the conviction and imprisonment of an innocent person for infanticide. This is occurrence should never have taken place and demonstrated the weaknesses in the Australian legal system. A legal system is meant to be sturdy and never failing system that the public can put its trust ad faith in but this time it fell apart and wrongly convicted an innocent mother, wife and friend. Something needs to be done to ensure the unnecessary imprisonment of an innocent does not occur again. There were many issues in the legal system that let Lindy Chamberlain down. Firstly the expensive court system that disadvantages those who cannot afford the best. Secondly, the inadequacies of the police force. The third issue was the public bias and finally the contaminated jury. Cheap Lawyer "Justice only comes by the expenditure of large amounts of money and support of many friends".1 This statement is true. Not many people in the country can afford the best lawyer and it is true to say that if you have the money to pay for a brilliant lawyer than you will have a good chance at winning any case. Not many people can afford to go as far
It could be argued that the employment tribunal system is a breach of Article 6, which is demonstrated in Smith v Secretary for Trade and Industry3 and in Scanfuture UK ltd v Secretary for State for Trade4 which led to the procedures
The European Convention for Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms is more commonly known as 'the Convention' was introduced by the Council of Europe in 1950 and was then enforced in 1953. The reason for the Convention being introduced was to prevent events which occurred during the World War Two from occurring again. The aim of the Convention was to protect individuals' rights against infringements by the state. The Human Rights Act 1998 developed Convention rights into UK domestic law through a restricted basis, the Act came into force on 2nd October 2000. Human Rights Act is set to have an immense amount of protection for both private and public sector employees. It means individuals can ascertain their Convention rights against the state in a UK court and no longer have to go to Strasbourg. However if domestic legislation is unambiguous and can not be interpreted in accordance with Convention, the domestic statute takes precedence.1 It's unlawful for public authority to act in a way which is incompatible with Convention rights. There are situations were the court has decided that primary legislation is incompatible with Convention rights which then leads to a 'declaration of compatibility' being issued. An Employment Tribunal can not make a declaration of incompatibility, therefore employment cases have to wait until they have reached Court of
Provocation. The provocative act must cause the defendant to suddenly and temporarily lose their self control as shown in R v Duffy. Evidence to show that Eleanor lost her temper is the fact that in a state of agitation, she bought a container of flammabl
Provocation: Exam Question 2002 Provocation is a special defence. This means it is only available to a defendant if they have been charged with Murder, it cannot be used for any other offence, and if it is successful the defendant will be convicted of manslaughter rather than murder. The provocative act can be anything said (R v Newell) or done, and the acts can be directed at or not at the defendant (R v Davies). The relevant case here is R v Davies where the provocative act was not directed at the defendant because the defendant saw his wife (victim) with her "friend" outside the library, merely seeing this was enough provocation for the defendant to shoot his wife. Similarly, Eleanor was convinced that Fiona and Gordon were making a lot of noise in order to disturb her, even though Fiona and Gordon were unaware that Eleanor was angry with them. This was therefore an indirect act but provocative enough for Eleanor to carry out the unlawful act. The provocative act must cause the defendant to suddenly and temporarily lose their self control as shown in R v Duffy. Evidence to show that Eleanor lost her temper is the fact that in a state of agitation, she bought a container of flammable liquid. If an apparently small incident causes the defendant to kill then the jury may doubt whether there had been a loss of control because the provocative act was so trivial such
Political Rights and Duties.
Rights and Duties Different political creeds have different approaches to questions of rights and entitlements. Conservatives talk more of duties than rights, and when talking of the latter are likely to place emphasis on freedom from state interference and rights of property. Liberal Democrats often talk of citizens, people who have rights by virtue of their membership of society; they are committed to the defence of civil liberties, and favour action to protect minority groups from various forms of discrimination. Socialists have traditionally spoken of collective rights, of assembly, of industrial action and of welfare, among other things; they are less sympathetic to rights of property. In recent years, however, the Labour Party has placed a new emphasis upon the defence of rights, be they those of racial or other minorities or the civil liberties which they believe have been seriously eroded in the Thatcher years. In the Smith-Blair era, they have committed themselves to incorporation of the European Convention on Human Rights into British law. Tony Blair has, however, done something unusual for a Labour leader; he has placed much more emphasis upon people's obligations towards society, and he frequently talks of duties and obligations, as well as entitlements. Implications of the incorporation of the European Convention on Human Rights (enshrined in the

"By 1928 the essentials of democracy had been achieved." How far would you agree?
Amdg Laura Sermanni History essay 11/09/04 "By 1928 the essentials of democracy had been achieved." How far would you agree? Democracy is definable as a form of government where there is a fair representation system, universal adult suffrage, the right of the electorate to participate in the political process, freedom of speech for all, a government dependant on majority support in the commons and regular elections, free of corruption. In the eighteen hundreds various events, such as the French revolution, made many Britons wary of democracy, because of the radicalism and violence that had occurred during them. However by 1900 politicians were eager to be seen as champions of democracy. The electoral system in Britain before the 1932 reform bill had been virtually unchanged since the late 1680s, by comparison to a country whose economy, class system and political methods had changed substantially since that time. The principle reason for the great change in the orientation of the country was the Industrial Revolution, which had created a new economy and caused the emergence of new cities such as Manchester and Birmingham where the new factories were centred. However, because the electoral system was still that which had been formulated in 1682, these new towns had no political representation, while towns, which had
"Equal Rights vs. Special Rights" The topics of the extent a homosexuals civil rights should be stated has become a topic in congress
Amy Stephens Sociology November 11, 2005 "Equal Rights vs. Special Rights" The topics of the extent a homosexuals civil rights should be stated has become a topic in congress more so than ever. The civil rights preventing a person from being fired from a job for being gay and the right of an apartment owner to deny a person from renting from them for being a homosexual has been heated arguments for years now. There are not many public "facts" on these topics but the truth is, that to make a decision on these topics you have to look inside yourself and search your own beliefs and morals. At the employment nondiscrimination act for senates on September 9, 1996, representatives from all the states got together to discuss these topics and then vote on whether to amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Some people might agree with a known republican from the state of Rhode Island, Mr. Chafee, that the only factor that should be considered in the work place is the ability of an employee or potential employee to do the job at hand. Since Sexual orientation, like race or ethnicity, has nothing to do with the job ability, it seems that it has no place as a basis for discrimination. I am sure that everyone has heard the arguments about whether or not people who are homosexuals are born that way or if it is a behavior in which they have developed or were taught. I cannot say for
