I'd rather the human rights act complied and agreed on by multiple governments than something made up by the tories ffs
Such pathetic exceptionalism

Yes, they're replacing it, but should we trust the Tories with protecting our rights?

OP: just out of interest why do you think replacing the human rights act with a new system (a UK bill of rights I believe?) is 'moronic'?

I don't necessarily oppose a British Bill of Rights, but I fear that:

1) It won't have all necessary protections contained within it; for instance: that of privacy.

2) It can, and will, be amended, or down-right ignored, at the behest of any and all parliamentary legislature. How exactly is this bill of rights meant to be enforced, and what authority does it hold?

Theyre simply replacing it for if the UK leave the EU in 2017. The media have just simply twist it to seem as if theyre scrapping it altogether and not replacing it.

Human rights are pretty fundamental and the act is already able to look after all humans and provide them with their rights. Why would you replace that?

As for improvements and updates, in this context that means taking human rights away from people. I'm not aware that they're going to add in any other ones, so all you can do at this point is subtract.

Are you comfortable with us potentially leaving the EU? The prospect of a referendum was one (of many) of the reasons I couldn't vote tory.

It's part of our law and if we leave the EU it will still be part of our law.

Yes they want to get rid of it but they want to replace it with the British Bill of Rights. The question is why? There is nothing bad, evil or stupid on the humans right act so there is no reason to change it. Answer: So that privacy becomes less of a right so they can continue with their laws to invade our privacy (such as they are doing with the "snoopers charter").

EU law is a part of our constitution, yes, but if we leave the EU, why would we still have their law as a part of it? Thats kinda the point of leaving to get rid of the power they have over us
