Not down to me guv'

The Lib Dem MP, John Hemming, has failed in his High Court challenge regarding the standard of the replies Tony Blair provides to Parliament under questioning. Apparently the MP has raised this in the past in the House and the Speaker has told him that it's not the Speaker's place to rule on the matter. Now the High Court says it's not their job either. The hapless MP has been ordered to pay just over £2000 in costs.

What does The High Court of Justice have to do with Parliament ?

Maybe richboy Hemmings ought to learn some Constitutional Law
