Recently in the Supreme Court, Kevin Tracey, a lay litigant, won two important cases against the Irish State and Courts Service. In one case [2016] he was co-prosecutor with his wife Karen, in the other [2019] he was alone. But for the sole reason that he was a lay litigant, he got no costs awarded for his time and labour. Only solicitors and barristers are allowed costs when they win. The rulings not to allow him costs for time and labour were made in the Supreme Court on 25 June 2021. Their hands are tied by Irish legislation. In Canada however lay litigants are awarded such costs. One of the reasons given for this by the Canadian judges was based on Equity. Kevin Tracey’s arguments based on Equity were not dealt with in the rulings - rather were completely ignored by the Supreme Court.

Our world, once thriving with energy and life, has now become a dystopian landscape of barren streets and masked people with a Governments around the world have enforced unprecedented restrictions on people’s lives, imposing lockdowns that closed down most of society for months at a time—stopping people from visiting their families, isolating the elderly in care homes, and destroying millions of people’s livelihoods.

These draconian laws were brought in to control an alleged pandemic created by a new virus called SARS-CoV-2 that creates the respiratory illness of Covid 19. The numbers of so-called ‘cases’ and deaths ‘attributed to Covid’ are churned out daily by the media fanning the fear. The hurricane force driving this pandemic is the reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction test (RT-PCR). So, it’s vitally important that we understand exactly how the RT-PCR test works and its limitations.look of foreboding in their eyes.

The key witness in a case the US govt has against Julian Assange and for which he could have faced a jail term of 175 years and the alleged reason why the British government have held him in a high security prison for the last two years, has come forward to admit it is all based on lies. The person is a fraudster but was briefly involved in raising money for Wikileaks and used the opportunity to embezzle money from them. The person in question is from Iceland. The whole saga reveals how the FBI used the Icelandic govt as part of their efforts to entrap Assange.

This news means there is no case anywhere against Assange and he should be released immediately. The British govt who regularly bang on about human rights and the lack of free press in other countries has been denying Assange's freedom for years now and their own mainstream press have not made much effort to fight for his cause.
