We have always freely been to deport migrants, not sue soldiers etc. It's all gaslighting. That means our human rights are gone.

The Tories are becoming more dystopian as time passes.

Weakening laws designed to protect the individual from an overreaching government is never good news for those of us who believe in individual liberty.

Not really. The Britons had laws protecting life and basic freedoms of people when everyone else could legally slaughter their peasants or imprison their sons.

Nothing more than a petty piece of politicking to appeal to some ignorant bigots. These laws, aside from being British in design, are by definition to the benefit of the populace.
There was a very good overview of this in 'The Secret Barristers' new book actually. One of the more interesting points he raised was why we feel that rights even the Russians and Chinese have signed up to are somehow 'bad' for us?


... then again given a wannabe dictator like Patel gets wet over these it shouldnt come as a surprise they're awful.

I really do weep for my country these days and the body blow after body blow its undergone from this disgusting excuse for a government.

Government elected by largely socially conservative people opts out of the types of laws (i presume these are legal opt-outs) that social conservatives probably don't support.

Shock and horror.

"An opt-out could prevent a significant number of migrants and asylum seekers from using the legislation to avoid deportation from the UK.

The move could also protect British soldiers from claims against their overseas activities, it was reported."


Personally i am supportive of these two opt-outs (the only ones mentioned).

I don't see how this is a bad thing when the human rights we recognise will still be considered rights in British law - this just means that we have control over our own laws.
