Scrap the Human Rights Act

Comment 8th July 2010

This society is, as far as I'm concerned, as decent and fair as might be realistically expected without thsi legislation. It is so vague and all encompassing, that, although laudible in its aims, has become a refuge for a fair amount of people who have no qualms about violating other peoples' human rights.I am aware that the media present a skewed picture of the world at large, but stories seem to abound of gangsters, terrorists, abusers, drug dealers and their ilk insisting on the very human rights that they have deprived their victims.

Why does this matter?

This is to me important because I believe that the legal system should have some obligation to uphold commonly held moral codes, as opposed to cynically manipulating legislation to protect people who have no such moral standards. There must be much taxpayers money that is wasted on the sort of absurd cases that most people will have heard of.
