Maintain Independence Of The Judiciary, CPS And The Police

Politicians should pass laws that they feel appropriate, but it should be the role of the police and judges to act independently, neither aiming to influence nor being swayed by political or popular pressures. The limiting of the independence of judges, and the curtailment of their ability to make the right judgement and to pass appropriate sentences on cases that come before them can and does constitute an injustice. The police should act on the basis of priorities that are right for the areas in which they are operating. They should not be pushed to prioritise their resources or change the way they police on the basis of political demands.
