Repeal of European Human Rights Act

Comment 15th March 2013

Far too often the 'out of date' judiciary overturn decisions of the government claiming Human Rights. We need to repeal this act, as per David Cameron's idea, and institute our own 'Bill of rights' which gives more credence to victims of crime rather than the perpetrators and to those who act in the best interests of this country. Whether we like it or not, a government is elected to serve the people, the judjes are appointed and should not be able to overturn decisions taken by elected government ministers.

Why does this matter?

It is crazy that judges can overturn decisions taken after debate, when they themselves were not part of that debate and yet still believe that they know better. Furthermore they are not elected whereas, for better or for worse, ministers are. (Except for the likes of Mandleson who was badly appointed)
