Another well prepared case from the CSP that could have long term benefits to Cornwall.

"Decision and order sought:- Annulment of Council Decision of 19th April 2007. On the grounds that, the Decision does not guarantee fundamental rights for all Community citizens and does not include the adoption of the tried and tested United Nations International Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD) ratified by all Member States."

Found this interesting document on the Democracy Audit website that seems directly relevant to the ECHR applications of the stannary concerning equality before the law: http://www.democraticaudit.com/index.php

The Democratic Audit discloses a series of breaches of international standards rights across the spectrum of ‘democratic’ rights. These are not random pockets of non -compliance, but examples of systemic weakness. This weakness calls into question the health of British democracy itself. The Audit’s principal findings are:

The Equal Protection of the Law

Britain’s inability to afford all citizens the equal protection of the law is the most serious and damaging failure to meet international standards. No general right of equality exists. Weak and narrow laws against discrimination on grounds of race, sex, religion and disability exist in different parts of the country, but do not apply uniformly throughout the UK. Religious, but not racial, discrimination is prohibited in Northern Ireland; racial, but not religious, elsewhere. People are not protected against discrimination in other significant areas of their lives, including old age, health and sexual orientation. Government officials – such as immigration officers – are actually exempt from major antidiscrimination laws. Some government legislation and practice actually promotes intolerance towards homosexuals.

 Random Information. 
 Pythias, a Greek traveller, wrote about the Cornwall tin: "The tin traders at Land's End in Cornwall.... win tin by handling the ore with great knowledge. They than cast it in cubics and bring it to an island just offshore called 'Ictus'. Foreign traders buy it there to bring it to Gaul".
