This is probably the most irresponsible piece of legislation enacted in the United Kingdom. Rather than protecting the rights of decent people, it has been used to block the proper administration of justice to undoubted wrongdoers.
Repeal it NOW!!! Do not be concerned with the EU. If the "worst" comes to the "worst" secession from the EU is preferable to the dictats of the Federalist Nanny EU.
Why does this idea matter?
Look back at UK legislation that has been "watered down", ameliorated or set aside because of this EU-inspired legislation. The only proper legislative bodies for the UK are the British people and the British Parliament. These have been examples for the world. Europe seeks to undo this and impose Continental, ie, Napoleonic protocols. Why did we defeat him in 1815?
