Are our Human Rights inadequately protected by the UK’s constituitional arrangements?
Yes points - HRA 1998. Section 3 - for judges to interpret all UK law in line with the European Convention of human rights e.g Ghaidan v Godin Mendoza -Section 4 - allows for judiciary to make declaration of incompatibility if UK statute isn't in line with the ECHR e.g. Bellinger v Bellinger (resulting in the gender recognition act) and - Further separation of powers through constitutional reform act 2005, establishing separate Supreme Court (more ready to challenge Statutory disregard for HR?) - Judicial Review for if state bodies act ultra vires (beyond conferred powers), using methods such as 'Wednesbury unreasonableness', 'procedural impropriety', 'illegality' and 'proportionality' e.g. Pham 2015 (prevention of suspected terrorist losing their 'right to rights') - common law protection of rights e.g. Entick v Carrington Changing concept of constitution allowing for greater protection of human rights e.g. Bi-polar sovereignty, Knight - sovereignty both resides with the crown in courts and the crown in Parliament.. empowerment of courts mean they are more equipped to protect rights? E.g. Legally constitutionalist perspective of Neuberger in R (Evans) v Attorney General "decisions of a court is binding... cannot be ignored... fundamental to the rule of law that decisions and actions of the executive are... reviewable by the court at the suit of an interested citizen" No - Doctrine of Parliamentary Sovereignty central to U.K. Constitution (A.V. Dicey - introduction to the constitution)... Allowing Parliament to 'make or unmake any law' examples of Parliamentary sovereignty in law: Madzimbamuto v Lardner Burke, Thoburn v Sunderland city council, Pickin v British Railroad - Judiciary don't commonly make Declarations of incompatibility under s4 e.g. Nicklinson 2014 - Human Rights are more so protected via political accountability rather than constitutional arrangements, since Parliament wouldn't infringe explicitly on rights the electorate hold dear (Read Adam Tomkins on political accountability)

If you have given a chance to promote an advocacy in your school, what would it be and why?
This is a tricky one, when thinking about what advocacy to promote you must think of the student body as a whole and what would benefit not only them but the wider community. As a teacher it must not be a personal response but rather an informed and researched response upon student needs.

What is the difference between one nation and Thatcherism in the Conservative party?
Whereas Conservatives of the One Nation tradition saw the workings of the market as imperfect and needing correction by the Government and a need to bind together the different groups in society, there were always some Conservatives who believed in the need for a market free from government interference and in the importance of individual effort rather than any idea of society as a whole. The Thatcher Governments from 1979 to 1990 followed many New Right ideas. Here's three key examples: - A reduction in the size of the State. The New Right view was that Government Departments and local authorities had an inbuilt interest in spending more on the programmes that they controlled. - The reduction of public expenditure because it took resources away from private investment. In the same way, high taxation inhibits entrepreneurship. - Deregulation of the economy. Markets will work best and create wealth without government intervention.
