Thread: Human Rights Act to be scrapped

    Human Rights Act to be scrapped

    Government to scrap Human Rights Act, Good or Bad, will it affect our day to day activities.



    My belief is that if you are a lawful person carrying out lawful activities then you should have nothing to worry about, however step beyond lawful activities and you will not be able to hide behind this act claiming your Human Rights will be infringed.

    IMO those who have or do flout/break the law and then claim to have there human rights infringed should not have this hiding place.

    I dont get what all the fuss is about

    they are replacing it with a wider Bill of Rights which addresses things that are not confined to "human" rights

    They may have Scotland as a hiding place though...

    They're trying to stop Strasbourg overruling our courts' poor judgements. If they do ever create a new British Bill of Rights people here will simply choose to use Strasbourg as a court of first resort rather than last resort. The whole exercise is facile and more than a little divisive, aiming at a Euro-split perhaps?

    Imagine that it may be easier to remove those unwanted, or even the odd anti causing a problem..but I'm sure there is another agenda to this!
