In losing its Common Law, England has lost its Common Sense
Common sense does not function with a Constitutional legal system which defines what is legal. Under Common Law everything is legal bar what is specifically prohibited; that is why the European Human Rights stipulations, with which we are now so stuck, the common sense English should normally not need.
But are there now enough of us left even to grasp this point?
Rights, some of which jar so violently with our history, too often, as in this case, become themselves great infringements on the past reasonable and agreed civilised interactions between individuals!
Many over sixty five worked on to the delight and benefit of their employers in the past, obviously perfectly voluntarily. Now thousands must retire before they might wish through covert systems designed to apply old limits and employers are compelled to employ worthless timewasters until they are on the verge of death.Labels: English Supreme Court, Retirement age
