Parliamentary Privilege continued

Law Lecturer Andrew Geddis has done a fine rebuttal to former Justice Ted Thomas, on the previously blogged issue of parliamentary privilege.

His final two paragraphs are worth highlighting:

Simply put, if the public think Parliament is claiming too much by way of privilege for itself, they can make their displeasure so apparent that MPs will have to reconsider their actions.

What, however, can we do if we think the judges have got this kind of matter wrong? Nothing. And that, in the end, is the main point to remember.
