Why Theresa May Is Wrong About The Human Rights Act


Theresa May, UK Home Sec
 The Home Secretary, may have a case but falls short - and as the Secretary of State for Justice, Ken Clarke has rightly put it, - as a child, to deliver his message in clear and simple matter-of-fact manner.

And John Rentoul is wrong, as well as Ms. May, to define what those who drafted the said law meant. How do you know? You can assume but not sound outrightly absolute; that is misleading.

The said law, if removed, would harm both those complaining, and those that are assumed to have benefitted from it.

The Home Secretary seems completely foolish - again, well explained by the Justice Secretary, Ken Clarke  - and utterly laughable for speaking to the conference about misinterpretation of a law... If she had a qualm about that, she should be speaking to the legal luminaries and sector.

Since the installment of the Magna Carter, the need to protect the people of this country has remained steady if not advanced; it ranges from simple prosecution for the innocent until proven guilty, to complex things as women and abortion, gay people and equality, voting rights, etc.

But above all, what makes Ms. May's approach utterly useless is the anti-immigration splashes. There is a difference between immigration & race, immigration and rights or immigration and justice. If you deport an immigrant because they committed crime, lets say, as gross as murder, what do you do to another murderer who is British? Do you exile him/her?

Taken the above scenario, how many convicted murderers in this country are actually immigrants? Or have the governments failed in their job to institute a proper, working and workable immigration rule but instead use the issue to exploit the populace just to dally to the varying ignorance that the Home Secretary accuse Tory conference delegates of: "have not read article 8".

There is need for an objective, focused, candid and simple argument if the mistakes would be corrected. More Brits are on the dole, and claiming immigrants are taking their jobs. They cost the government more but that is based on the Human Rights Act.

I'm afraid, if the Human Rights Act is repealed (I hope not), Brits themselves will feel it first. From the employed that take more days off-sick than they work to those on the dole that contribute nothing to their acclaimed land of milk and honey.

But all I pray is for "God" not just to "save the Queen" alone this time, but us all from a closeted dictatorship that is subtly creeping up against us.
