Dominic Raab Amending Human Rights Act

Dominic Raab - the Justice Secretary - has announced that he will be amending the Human Rights Act to make it much harder for people to use it for nonsensical reasons.

Link - Conservative Party conference: Dominic Raab pledges overhaul of 'nonsensical' Human Rights Act

It has annoyed Amnesty International and David Lammy, which I find wholly acceptable.

It's about time this piece of flawed nonsense was gripped. As he says, it is not the principles behind the act itself that are at fault but the way lawyers for SJW types have exploited loopholes, aided by judges who give "ever more elastic interpretations of rights."

This is going to cause uproar on the left but what will Starmer do? Support it because it should be fixed to stop the drug dealing wife beaters using it to remain in the country? Or come out against the legislation to amend, be ridiculed by the Tories throwing examples of abusing the HRA, and be abused by the hard-left on the benches behind him.

Priti Patel is pretty much doing the same thing to immigration laws such as claiming asylum and arriving in illegally via the current bill going through parliament

The Labour freeloaders and other Anti-Tories aren't taking notice but the question is will they eat humble pie when an act actually IS passed and becomes legislation?

People like the see words, not action.

As for upsetting Amenesty International so has the bill from Priti @ Home Office as well as various NGO's and organisations

Kier will jump on whichever bandwagon is rolling by at the time.

You can have as much legislation as you want but if it is not enforced it is bollox.

What price illegals being arrested on the beaches?

The fact is it removes any compulsion to issue benefits whilst an asylum claim is decided... as well as loopholes

They may not be able to claim a penny after landing on the paradise island of the UK with or without a passport

No passport? Can't be deported

Can't prove who you are however? No free tax payers benefits, no roof over your head and no burder on the HO to consider a claim

Their has been emphasis on corralating all details and biometrically enrolling new arrivals as well (which IS fair enough!)
