Our High Court judges have their hands tied behind their backs. There have been numerous cases since the introduction of the act where persons convicted of serious offences have been allowed to remain in the UK. THIS MUST CHANGE. The rights of millions of innocent people must be put before the rights of one dangerous individual.
The Human Rights Act 1998 is by far the worst piece of legislation intrduced by the previous government. The idea was fantastic and I believe that everyone is entitled to certain rights. However, this piece of legislation has been hijacked by foreign criminals, terrorists and suspected terrorists. It allows people convicted of serious offences (hijacking etc) to remain in the UK for fear that their life may be indanger if they were deported, putting UK citizens at serious risk. What checks are undertaken by the government and security services with the convicted individuals country of origin to establish how real these risks are?.
