Internet Trolls Can Find Themselves Barred… A Bit

All they want is a reaction or at least attention from people who do not agree with them.

Regardless of who these individuals are, inciting people to harass others in public or virtual mobbing can be grounds for court action in the United Kingdom according to the new Crown Prosecution Service guidance.

According to Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders:

“The internet’s not an anonymous place where people can post without any consequences. People should think about their own conduct.

“If you are grossly abusive to people, if you are bullying or harassing people online, then we will prosecute in the same way as if you did it offline.”

Cases of troll virtual mobbing had forced some individuals to move into different addresses multiple times.

The image of one woman and child — for example — plastered onto pornographic material and claiming the parent as a paedophile can be a case of virtual mobbing. Without proper evidence of the truth, the abuse spreads to the parents.

Some disagree that the new CPS guidance could only bar trolls but may not work effectively in reality.

According to several legal analysts, the guidance cannot defend UK residents from individuals who ‘troll’ them from overseas, such as the United States or other hemispheres.

The Effects Of Brexit on US Businesses

The Brexit was not as bad as analysts thought. But indeed, trouble still looms and the UK and EU still have lots to discuss about EU and UK employers in each other’s soil.

For US businesses in the United Kingdom, the employment laws may differ immensely after Prime Minister Theresa May and the European Union finalise the exit of the United Kingdom from Europe.

This would mean a plethora of changes from the United Kingdom itself. While the specifics may still be far, the UK would enter a flexible and less regulated regime. EU regulations that once applied to US business employees could change.

These include:

  • limits on working time and weekly maximum limits on working hours;
  • certain complex and technical aspects of statutory holiday rights (including the European requirement that workers on sick leave and maternity leave continue to accrue holiday) and in relation to on-call time and compensatory rest time;
  • the Agency Workers Regulations;
  • certain aspects of the Transfer of Undertakings Regulations; and
  • certain provisions relating to collective consultation requirements, and obligations in respect of works councils and information and consultation bodies.


UK Lawyers Are Moving To Ireland Due To Brexit

For many UK lawyers an understanding of both the British and European laws is imperative. With the Brexit, the need for European legal issues is in high demand, but not in Britain.


A ‘magic circle’ of legal firms register their solicitors so that they may practise in European law by moving to Ireland. Some of these legal firms include some of the UK’s largest including Freshfields, Hogan Lovells, Slaughter and May, and Allen & Overy have voiced out that their applicants join solicitors in the Republic of Ireland.

Slaughter and May had first funded their Brussels-based competition partners to join in the Republic of Ireland. Meanwhile, Freshfields and Hogan Lovells encouraged some of their partners to follow suit.

Eversheds also plan to launch their own Eversheds Consulting in Ireland with a Dublin team led by litigation partner Pamela O’Neill.

So far this year, 219 English solicitors have been admitted to the Roll of Solicitors in Ireland — compared with 70 in 2015. The Law Society says the vast majority of lawyers have cited Brexit as their primary reason for seeking admission in Ireland.

Under the rules, solicitors who have qualified in England, Wales and Northern Ireland can undergo a two-step process that allows them to practise as solicitors in Ireland.

Merkel Warns The UK: You Can”t “Cherry Pick” Laws

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the United Kingdom is welcome to re-negotiate its relationship with the European Union. Merkel stressed the United Kingdom cannot “cherry pick” laws whichever it wished.

She said all 28 nations of the bloc agreed the British government would not receive acknowledgement for negotiations until Article 5, the formal process for leaving the European Union is triggered.

“The decision has been taken … and the next step is and Britain will do this only when they have a new prime minister to invoke Article 50,” she said.

“I expect that to happen. I deal with reality and I firmly expect that application will be made.”

She added: “We have spoken to Britain and made clear there will be no negotiations with Britain until they have made their application, and there will be no cherry picking.”

“We have spoken to Britain and made clear there will be no negotiations with Britain until they have made their application, and there will be no cherry picking.”

In the United Kingdom, about 1,000 lawyers have written to British Prime Minister David Cameron saying the EU referendum result must be criticised because it was influenced by misrepresentations of fact and promises that couldn”t be delivered.

The barristers also said the referendum”s decision was only “advisory” and not legally binding.

Oldest British Legal History Defendant Denies Child Sex Offences

Accused with 17 indecent assaults, 12 offences of indecency with a child and two attempted sexual offences in 1974 and 1983, 101-years-old Ralph Clarke pleads not guilty to the charges before him.

About 31 offences dating back 40 years involved children aged between four and 13 years old in 1974 and 1983. The court heard from the prosecution that the offences happened in his garage, workshop and in his lorry cab.

A former lorry driver from Birmingham, the old man had found trouble hearing the court despite having fresh batteries in his hearing aid.

He was told that he will have renewed bail until trial and is unconditional. But his failure to attend court would mean his absence permits the hearing without his representation.

The trial date for Ralph Clarke was set for December 5 and may last two weeks.

Drone Strikes Used Outside Of Armed Conflict Needs Clarifying

The UK government said its drones does not have a “targetted killing” policy. However, the Joint Committee on Human Rights said the UK was willing to use lethal force in the Middle East and overseas.

The drone case involves the killing of a UK citizen in Syria by an RAF drone.

Reyaad Khan, who joined the Islamic State in Syria, was killed by a military-operated drone August of 2015.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said the 21-year-old from Cardiff plotted to attempt “barbaric” attacks on UK soil.

He justified the attack was an act of self-defence in that regard.

Parliament added:

“Although the government says that it does not have a ‘targeted killing’ policy, it is clear that it does have a policy to use lethal force abroad outside armed conflict for counter-terrorism purposes.

“Certain aspects of the government’s view of the legal basis for its policy require urgent clarification,” they said.

Committee chairman and Labour MP Harriet Harman said the legal justification for the drone strike on Khan had been “confused and confusing”.

She called for the UK government to lead the way internationally by defining a clear legal basis for action, and making sure those who made decisions were held accountable.

“As the world faces the grey area between terrorism and war, there needs to be a new international consensus on when it is acceptable for a state to take a life outside of armed conflict,” she said.

A government spokesman said: “We are clear that where we identify a direct and imminent threat to the UK we will take lawful action to address it and report to Parliament after we have done so.

“Such actions are only to be carried out as a last resort when all other options have been exhausted, and we would always do so in accordance with international humanitarian law.”

Offshore Accounts Has Legalised Corruption Worldwide

Global banking and business connections has been the aim of the West’s globalisation to begin with.


In spite of multiculturalism knocking on almost anyone’s door through the Internet, everyone also enjoys a piece of cultural pies made from different cultures worldwide.

Unfortunately, that also meant organised criminals can come in different forms and cultural backgrounds.

‘Mafia’ and ‘mafioso’ at this point would mean differently. It isn’t just criminals hiding their moneys in casinos and up-front businesses anymore.

Because elites are also doing it. If you’ve been watching the Panama paper news closely, you know what I’m talking about.

British President David Cameron is also deep in hot water because of the issue. Several government officials, including the Prime Minister of Iceland had resigned partly due to these revelations.

Worldwide, governments have found officials engaging in legalised corrupt activity.

What that means is tax evasion.

In the United Kingdom, tax evasion is more of a way to minimise your yearly tax fees by a huge margin. Tax evasion also means you’re denying people their right to develop their own income and for governments to develop land for many people.

I know it’s not a socialist manner of thought. But capitalism has trusted the modern man to make the right decisions out of the goodness of their heart.

There’s always a way to corrupt or hack a political system. Unfortunately, nothing ever works.
