From the cover: “In the title of this book When Britain Waived the Rules and Sampled — anarchy ‘the rules’ which were waived, allude to the provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights – freedoms guaranteed for the individual citizen. The anarchy refers to the time when certain rights had been wrested from British law, by Labour party legislation in deference to trade union power which then asserted itself with devastating effect. The case of James, Young and Webster v. the United Kingdom Government was in effect representing all those who had suffered the injustices of a grotesque piece of United Kingdom legislation. The case has been seen as one of the most important in British constitutional history.”
