Human Rights Act 1998

Reason why it should be put on the Bonfire

To be repealed and replaced by proposed new Bill of Rights. The proposed new Bill should be written only in accordance with, and in the spirit of, the existing Bill of Rights 1689 and should enshrine rights for Britons. This new statue shall renounce and repudiate the use of cruel and unusual punishment against ALL persons whilst they remain within the environs of the United Kingdom. No person shall suffer torture or any other form of cruel and unusual punishment whilst they remain within United Kingdom. The possibility that they may become so at risk if deported, however, is not a proper matter for United Kingdom courts which shall confine themselves to domestic considerations alone.
