Is May Right? Should We Ditch The EU Human Rights Laws?

Does Britain need Human Rights Laws? The short answer is definitely – Yes! But the long answer is – not in their current form! Theresa May, the Conservative Home Secretary has recently stated she would like to get rid of the European Human Rights Laws (EHRL) and have a set of British laws replace them. I agree.

Preaching Sedition And Hatred

For too long our justice system has been cheated, hampered and bamboozled by unscrupulous lawyers who use these laws to get their guilty clients off. Prime examples are the suspected terrorists, Abu Hamsa who evaded deportation to the USA for ten years, and Abu Qatada, who for more then ten years has used these same human rights laws to prevent deportation to Jordan to answer terrorists charges, and is still in the country.

There have been many such cases, and even those of ordinary criminals who have avoided prison by using the Strasbourg Human Rights Court to their advantage. It has to stop.

These laws, while necessary to prevent miscarriages of justice through discrimination and outlawing torture etc., are making a mockery of the British Justice System, which until the introduction of the Human Rights Act (HRA) was always considered fair.

Criminals are a lot smarter than they were decades ago, and lawyers have become much more dishonest in my opinion. The lawyers in particular, will use any and every trick in the book to get their clients off, sometimes, even when personally convinced of their guilt, and the HRA is exactly the tool they need.

I do not see how European lawyers based in Strasbourg, can have sufficient knowledge of a British court case in order to make a just judgement. It is known far and wide that the Strasbourg courts are woefully overstretched and cannot spend the necessary time on each case to make a proper decision.

I applaud Theresa May’s stance on this subject and think the move is fully justified, if many years late. Providing the replacement laws are just, and satisfy the legal requirements of both national and international law there is nothing wrong in this.

The only fly in the ointment is that it depends on a Conservative victory at the next election in two years time. The results of the mid-term elections held recently give a swing to Labour, but hopefully we need not read too much into this. A swing in the opposite direction is not unusual in mid-term elections, but we should be wary when the real election comes.

Tony Blair and his band of crooks did more damage to the British nation than any other government in its long history. During their previous term their immigration policies damaged the country to such an extent as to be beyond repair, and I would hope the people remember, and are not stupid enough to want more of the same by voting them back in again.

No Justice Here!

It is always difficult when a political party is left with the task of clearing up devastation inherited from the previous government, for it takes time. I will not say that the current Conservative/Liberal Coalition is perfect, not by a long way, but it is clear they are trying to solve the mess left behind by Brown and his Labour assassins. It will however be a long task and we should give them time.

I for one hope the Tories do get in again, if only to see these ridiculous European laws given the boot and replaced with something more sensible. If the other members of the European Union want to moan and groan, let them. Why should we care!

Roy.
