Politics through the Courts

Is not an element of our unwritten constitution the ability to exercise our right to hold government accountable when they are without the laws they are responsible to uphold.
Are you forgetting the right to petition? That’s been part of English law since before Henry II. That has been eroded, but it’s making a comeback.

Maybe people have lost confidence in the government's ability to rule itself and prefer the percieved independence of the judiciary.

No Government actually rules itself, it can't by definition. Government is a blanket name for ministries run by individuals. All incumbent ministers do is tweak what already exists until,the next one comes along. It's the distinction as to how many times they come to parliament to change the law. In old English Law any person had the right to petition at a local level to deal with their circumstance, but we have gradually seen how local councils have eroded the democratic process to such an extent that they are almost mini Westminsters in concept. This concept of Council Cabinets was introduced under Blair IRC. But we have come to the point that the last thing the media concentrate on is Government and every unelected tom dick of Harriet are chosen as the Voice of Peeple.
