University of Ceylon v. E. F. W. Fernando on Appeal from the Supreme Privy Council PC (Cey) LORD JENKINS February 16. The judgment of their Lordships was delivered by who said: To their Lordships' regret, the plaintiff, it may be for financial reasons, has not appeared to support the decision in his favour pronounced by the Supreme Court, and although counsel for the University have done their best to make up for this by presenting the plaintiff's side of *229 the matter as well as their own, their Lordships have felt some anxiety in dealing with this not altogether easy case in the plaintiff's absence…

The third ground was to the effect that by reason of the first "the maxim that justice should not only be done but also appear to be done" had been violated. The fourth ground comprised the substance of the plaintiff's case and was to the effect that the evidence of the various witnesses who appeared before the commission of inquiry, including the evidence of Miss Balasingham, was taken in the absence of the plaintiff, who was not aware of what evidence was led against him, and that in the circumstances one of the essential elements of natural justice was not observed, inasmuch as the plaintiff was not aware of the case he had to meet. The fifth ground was to the effect that the evidence of the various witnesses was not taken entirely before all the three members of the commission of inquiry, and that such evidence was acted on by the commission, and that this circumstance was also a violation of the elementary principles of justice. The plaintiff further alleged that there was no evidence upon which the commission of inquiry could reasonably find the charge against the plaintiff proved, that the finding arrived at against the plaintiff was one which had not been arrived at in conformity with clause 8, and that the finding and decision were therefore void and of no effect. The allegations of bias or disqualification against Professor Mylvaganam as a member of the commission of inquiry were rejected in both courts as without substance. The allegation to the effect that there was no evidence upon which the commission could reasonably find the charge against the plaintiff proved was (so far as open to the court) clearly ill-founded. The allegation to the effect that the finding was not arrived at in accordance with clause 8 turned on the fact that the Vice-Chancellor appointed two other persons to sit with him as a commission of inquiry to investigate the matter, instead of proceeding to investigate it alone. It was held in both courts that this procedure was not open to objection, inasmuch as this was merely a method, which the Vice-Chancellor was free to adopt if he chose to do so, of satisfying himself of the truth or falsity of the charge, and the Report was a report by him for the purposes of clause 8 although signed by the two other members of the commission as well as himself. The plaintiff having taken no steps to appeal against *230 the decision of the court below on these matters of complaint, their Lordships need say no more about them. There remain the complaints to the effect that the evidence, including that of Miss Balasingham, was taken in the absence of the plaintiff who was not aware of the evidence led against him or of the case he had to meet; and that the evidence of certain witnesses was taken by the Vice-Chancellor in the absence of the other members of ...Download file to see next pages Read More

The Equitable Doctrine by Lord Mersey

...HAS THE EQUITABLE DOCTRINE OUTLIVED ITS SIGNIFICANCE HAS THE EQUITABLE DOCTRINE OUTLIVED ITS SIGNIFICANCE? The equitable doctrine prohibiting the imposition of a clog on the mortgagors right to redeem was described by Lord Mersey in Kreglinger v New Pattagonia Meat and Cold Storage Co Ltd [1914] AC 25 at 46 as "like an unruly dog, which, if not securely chained to its own kennel, is prone to wander into places where it ought not to be". This landmark judgment has raised stout defenders and protagonists ever since it was proclaimed. Throughout the last century and up to now there have been unending arguments and pros and cons on the issue. Significantly, this is likely to continue in the foreseeable future as well. The reason...

Parallels and Opposites in The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R.Tolkien

...Parallels and Opposites in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ by John Ronald Reuel Tolkien Introduction The three Lord of the Rings novels of J.R.R. Tolkien have been first written and published over 40 years ago, but the themes of the book remain universal and relatable to this day. Although the story is obviously a fictionalized tale featuring hobbits, dwarves, elves, and other mythical beings, the struggles it has managed to portray depict human, and very much current disputes, of good versus evil; failures versus triumphs; and man against nature. With these analogies, it is appropriate to now review Tolkien’s creative use of parallels and opposites to communicate the major themes of his mythology. This paper shall explore three examples...

The Lady of Shalott by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

...The Lady of Shalott by Alfred, Lord Tennyson The poem The Lady of Shalott, arranged in four parts, talks about the inner dilemmas and conflicts that an artist faces constantly. The rewards of resolutely focusing on the artistic world are at times insufficient to compensate for the emptiness experienced in the artist’s personal life. Through the example of the Lady of Shalott and her devoted attention to the art of “weaving her magical webs”, the author expresses the heroic battle within. This essay will argue that the central focus of the poem is the perennial heroic struggle in an artist’s mind between his/her dedication to the art and the temptations of ordinary social life. This essence of the poem is brilliantly presented through...

The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring

The three books that together form Tolkiens work, The Lord of the Rings form a classic in their genre, of fantasy and myth, that parallels human existence. To capture their essence on cinema is not a mean task, considering not only their depth and girth but also their ineffable beauty, their contrasts of dark and light, of fear and courage, of good and evil, humility in the face of temptation, and last, but not the least, of the horror and corruption power may bring, without spiritual understanding.

There have been recent movie adaptations of other popular books which include the Harry Potter Series, Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Memoirs of a Geisha, all with varying degrees of success....

Lord of the Flies by William Golding

... William Golding’s Lord of the Files is a wonderful attempt in novel writing, as the novelist represents the human community in a miniature model, which means that he has made use of children as his characters instead of adults. He tries to represent the themes such as need for a social order and the fear for the unknown etc., behind the life of children who have been left in a lonely island due to a air mishap. Golding’s observation on the society is revealed through the life style the children follow inside the island. It has to be understood from this novel that Golding emphasises the presence of a beast in every human being, which will come out during a circumstance that disturbs the social order. Though he might have...

What does Lord of the Flies Teach Us about Governance

... The novel “The Lord of the Flies” written by William Golding is a story about four British boys who are stuck on a tiny coral island in the South Pacific after a plane crash where there are no adult survivors at all. The events in the story occur during war time, with the underlying premise that an atomic bomb may have been used, which has caused the death of all those on the plane. As the boys wait on the island and try to survive until they are rescued, their world represents a microcosm of society and civilization and the different elements that comprise it. It is an allegorical categorization of the nature of civilization and the constant underlying impulse in man to shed his civilized veneer to give reign to the savage urges...

The Impact of Lord Liverpools Support of the Corn Laws of 1845 on the Support for the Conservative Party

...Reflections upon the impact of Lord Liverpool’s support of the Corn Laws of 1845 on the support for the Conservative Party The corn laws of 1815 were controversial, in their own time as well as when seen through the lenses of later historians. Agriculturalists then regarded them as not offering enough protection, thus endangering British agriculture in the long run and were therefore opposed. On the other end of the spectrum were those who were in favour of free trade and who opposed the Corn Laws as being a government concession to the land barons of Ireland and Britain, against the interest of the poor. The opinion of the latter is perhaps most eloquently voiced by Blake (170, p. 15) who assessed the 1815 corn laws from a distance...
