Human Rights

Comment 21st July 2010

The Conservative Party at the last Election promised a review of all this legislation. There are a number of matters which are illogical and against the natural instincts of our nation.The conflict with the European notion of human rights to which we signed up many many years ago needs reviewing in the light of changes which have taken place since then.Just to illustrate the point I instance the case of Osman Bin Laden.If he suddenly appeared on our streets we would have a job bringing him to trial ( never mind the huge cost involved ) if he could have a fair trial he could go to prison. Many other countries would like him extradited and he could object on the grounds he would not get fair treatment and we would ( unnecessarily in my view ) have to take this into account. Furthermore if he were imprisoned here, on release he could object if we sent him almost anywhere so he would have to stay here and roam our streets. All this is quite wrong. In the first place I am not sure whether a proven offender has not forfeited some of his rights.Secondly why should we be unduly concerned about what will happen to him if he is extradited particularly when those countries give us undertakings – sometimes we are persuaded not to believe them.A review is undoubtedly necessary because so much water has gone under the bridge since the first concept of human rights was formalized and secondly to honour an undertaking given prior to the Election by our Leader.

Why does this matter?

A review is undoubtley necessary because so much water has gone under the bridge since the first concept of human rights was formalised soon after the second world war and our own Act of Parliament.It is also important to honour an undertaking given prior to the Election by our Leader.
