The legislature as an institution sits above the courts in every sense, in the UK at least. Parliament is sovereign and all any British court can ever do is apply its will as expressed in statute. Even 100 years of case law (“precedent”) and the most ancient common law the courts have access to can be overwritten with a single Act of Parliament, if Parliament so wishes. That’s why appointing extra-parliamentary bodies to sit in judgment of MPs is controversial.

There is no real parallel between the US Supreme Court and any British institution. The US is founded on a written constitution which is given living expression by the panel of Supreme Court justices who are all appointed by presidents and therefore likely to have political inclinations one way or another. Any presidential order and any act of congress can be tested by the Supreme Court in order to determine if it’s constitutional. The Supreme Court is therefore that country’s final legal authority.

The UK Supreme Court is simply our final court of appeal, designed primarily to hear the most significant cases, in which actions with grave consequences are tested against the most thorough reading of our unwritten constitution. And the thing about our constitution is that it really is just an arcane tangle of statutes and precedents, that Parliament can overwrite (or further tangle) at any time. In fact a UK Supreme Court judgment could be entirely undone by a single act of Parliament, if Parliament so wished. The legislature in the US can’t easily unpick US Supreme Court judgments in that way.

Re: US President Joe Biden

BREAKING: U.S President Joe Biden will briefly transfer power to Vice President Kamala Harris on Friday (today) when he undergoes a “routine colonoscopy” at Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre, the White House has said.

As was the case when President George W. Bush had the same procedure in 2002 and 2007, and following the process set out in the Constitution, President Biden will transfer power to the Vice President for the brief period of time when he is under anaesthesia,” she said.
“The Vice President will work from her office in the West Wing during this time.”

Re: US President Joe Biden

So I think this will be the first time in US history a woman has held full executive power?

Only major problem with this is, Harris is less popular than Joe is and his approval ratings are dire.

Re: US President Joe Biden

There isn’t a Trump thread anymore, if he runs that’ll change. Feel free to move this but I thought it a perfect example of Trump alarmism that we saw all through his presidency and not applied to his successor, where Trump was vilified for everything.

Here he has been given an honourary martial arts title without ever practicing the sport and this is news! Because it’s Trump it’s an issue.

Politicians are given honourary degrees all the time without ever studying the subject of the degree.

Re: US President Joe Biden

Others have been given this honour before, and it was reported then - do you think it shouldn’t have been reported when Trump got it?

It was reported when Obama got one…

Re: US President Joe Biden

It's not a question of whether or not it is reported, but more the mocking tone of the reporting only when certain people are involved.

It sounds like Pierre believes Trump should be given different treatment from other politicians.
