The English-Welsh courts (and U.K. courts in general) have gotten much more activist since Blair's legal reforms. The reforms we based heavily on US judicial organization and the result was more US-style judicial activism, especially as U.K. jurists are overwhelmingly EU-centric.
Really and which specific cases are you referring to? And since the none three judicaries have authority to rule on a point of EU law again I'd to hear from you as to which cases you are referring?

The introduction of the U.K. Supreme Court in 2009 gave the U.K. the same split of legislature and judiciary seen in other parliament of Westminster style democracies, although because of devolved government and the existence of three jurisdictions it powers are somewhat more restricted.
