Interests
No Human Rights for terrorists!

No Human Rights for criminals!

No Human Rights for paedophiles!

No Human Rights for....YOU?

The whole point of human rights is that they are universal. Yes, they apply to the prisoner...and they also apply to the office worker, the baker and the candlestick maker. That is to say, they apply to everybody and not just to those people whom the Conservative Party and the Daily (Nazi past) Mail happen to like and find socially acceptable.

The Human Rights Act is our protection - yours and mine - from being first isolated and then persecuted because of your sexuality, gender, race, religion or age. And that is probably why the recently elected Conservative government in Britain intends to repeal it.

It is worth pointing out that The Human Rights Act is nothing more than the European Convention on Human Rights translated into British law. And the European Convention came about because of the Second World War, with its experience of widespread persecution and genocide. The Human Rights Act is an entirely benevolent piece of legislation which protects everybody's rights to privacy, liberty, freedom from torture or systematic discrimination and persecution. And again, that is probably why this Tory government intends to repeal it. They cannot isolate and persecute their preferred targets until the Human Rights Act is out of the way. So you might think that it's worth defending and keeping, and in my view you would be right.

Amnesty International has already condemned the intended repeal of the Human Rights Act as being: "the biggest roll back of human rights in UK history". So that is an early badge of disgrace for this Tory government to wear. And given its intentions, across so many fronts, I feel sure that more will follow...

Things you can do to help:

Sign the Amnesty International petition: keeptheact.uk/?utm

Sign the 38 Degrees petition: you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions…
