    They are the UK's most powerful arbiters of justice and now, for the first time, four of the Justices of the Supreme Court talk frankly and openly about the nature of justice and how they make their decisions. The film offers a revealing glimpse of the human characters behind the judgments and explores why the Supreme Court and its members are fundamental to our democracy. The 11 men and one woman who make up the UK Supreme Court have the last say on the most controversial and difficult cases in the land. What they decide binds every citizen. But are their rulings always fair, do their feelings ever get in the way of their judgments and are they always right? In the first 14 months of the court they have ruled on MPs' expenses, which led to David Chaytor's prosecution, changed the status...

They explain what happens when they cannot agree and there is a divided judgment, and how they avoid letting their personal feelings effect their interpretation of the law. And they face up to the difficult issue of diversity; there is only one woman on the court, and she is the only Justice who went to a non-fee-paying school.

In this video: Shortly after the Normans conquered England in 1066, their monarch, William, seized all of the lands, then divvied up control among those soldiers and nobles who helped him defeat the Anglo-Saxons (and keeping a fair bit for himself). However, as dramatic as that was, it is even more shocking that today, most of Britain remains in the hands of the descendants of those early Norman conquerors.

1.Introduction Welcome:- The following information will explain in detail how to claim land and property legally. The UK Land Registry currently holds details of around 21 million registered land plots and properties; in effect it's a massive database of property ownership guaranteed by the land registry itself. In simple terms, this leaves an estimated 7 million unregistered land plot and properties in the UK right now with a combined value of billions of £'s. This is not to say all 7 million can easily be claimed ... But taking into account the size of the figures involved here, the likelihood of finding several plots of land and properties that you could claim is very good indeed. According to the Empty Homes Agency there are approximately 900,000 empty homes in Britain of which nearly 800,000 are in London. A sizeable proportion of these are abandoned or derelict. These properties, few of which have traceable owners, are just the type that after carrying out all proper research you may be able to claim from using this guide. These properties will of course at some time have had an owner. It may be that the owner has simply never registered his or her title... However it could also be that the owner has died and left no will and has no relatives or that the owner has never moved away from the area many years ago effectively abandoning the property. These then briefly are some of the types of property and the plots. Which by the following the detailed guidelines within this guide, you could claim as your own via the legal vehicle of adverse possession. We will cover all these points in much more detail later. Another interesting point worthy of mentioning here is the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors figure of over 17,000 plots of land and property that are being illegally claimed every year or around 250 per week. Not all of these would be claims of the scale and type we are going to consider in this guide. However this did lead Charles Harpum of the Law Commission (who helped draft the recent Land registration Act 2002) to recently comment that people claiming land and property had become something of a "national pastime". The legal definition of adverse possession is as follows. "The gaining of title real estate is continuous hostile, open, and notorious possession over a statutory period". Again we'll cover the content of this definition in further detail, as we progress. Initially, the land plots and properties you'll be looking for could be run down or abandoned...Derelict farmhouses or disowned buildings... Properties accessed via an overgrown driveway & rusty gates ... Fields, hidden plots of land.... Even old terraced or detached houses. https://www.amazon.com/How-Claim-Free-Property-UK/dp/1497498430/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

Don’t believe us? Just take a trip across the ocean to another continent and then get back to us about how different things are. Ok, you don’t even need to take a flight, just hop in the car and drive several hours in any direction and you’ll find that the place you end up in is different in many ways from the place you left. Culture, religion, politics and landscape can be very different just a couple hundred miles down the road – even if it’s still in the same country. Yes, the communications revolution may have brought people closer together but the world remains as diverse and large as it was decades ago. For North Americans, Britain and the rest of the United Kingdom is one of the most familiar of the world’s foreign lands. After all, while the English we speak may be different today in a number of ways, the language so many of us are familiar with today has its roots across the Atlantic Ocean. In the grand scheme, whether you live in Canada or the United States, your country, in one way or another, owes its existence to this overseas kingdom. Both countries may have gone about reaching independence very differently, but in the grand scheme both exist because of the vast empire which existed long ago. Despite the historical and language ties which we share with England and the UK, once you take a closer look at this land, there are a number of characteristics which we might think of as being rather weird. There are the generalizations and stereotypes which most us know; such as belief that the British all have bad teeth, it rains every day and the beer is always served warm. There are, actually, quite a few other things about the UK that are weird and not based on stereotype or generalization. These are the ‘little things’ that set this part of the world apart from other English speaking lands. The following video looks at some of the weirdest things a traveller might find in the United Kingdom. Our other videos have dealt with strange things like Haggis and cheese racing, so we’ll move on to some other items you may be less familiar with. Ahead are a number of things you’ll find weird (if you’re not from the UK) from various laws and foods to word pronunciations, television shows and customs. Of course, these doesn’t make the people of the UK weird – well, any weirder than the rest of us.
