Rule of Law Part 2: Tony Blair
"The rule of law meant a judiciary that was independent from the government of the day and not subservient to it.
"They are above me and not me above them
"But they will not come to nations that treat the rule of law as an optional extra, or even worse, as an impediment.
"The rule of law also meant laws that were clear, could be understood and applicable.
"It means rules and procedures that are transparent, and rules of evidence that make sense and are fair.
"While the rule of law was an arbiter and a guide, it was also fallible.
"Its inadequacies were not born of corruption or malice, and its errors paled in comparison to its virtues.
"Though in exceptional circumstances that it is possible to have the rule of law without true democracy, it is impossible to have true democracy without the rule of law.
"The truth is that people can be indifferent to the rule of law, except when their own freedom is in jeopardy.
