Too little, too late, probably, as Wright is saying “he ‘doesn’t know’ if the UK will still be signed up to the European Convention on Human Rights in five years’ time.” Five years? How many more jihadis will have made Britain a home by then? How many more counter-jihadis will the UK Home Office have banned from the country in a pathetic attempt to appease the nation’s all-powerful Leftists and Islamic supremacists?
Britannic Death Watch Update: “Britain ‘to scrap human right laws that let terrorists and criminals stay in UK,'” by Tom Parfitt, Express, September 16, 2015:
Jeremy Wright admitted he “doesn’t know” if the UK will still be signed up to the European Convention on Human Rights in five years’ time.
The Attorney General also blasted claims by his predecessor Dominic Grieve that Britain quitting the Convention would turn it into “a pariah state by European standards”.
He said: “It isn’t solely the maintenance of our membership of the European convention that demonstrates our adherence to the principles of human rights.”
Last month shocking figures revealed that a third of those who won cases against the UK at the European Court of Human Rights were terrorists, prisoners or criminals.
Hate preacher Abu Qatada’s deportation from Britain was repeated blocked by the court – costing taxpayers a staggering £2million over 10 years.
The court, in the French city of Strasbourg, has also ruled that UK prisoners should be allowed to vote.
Mr Wright argued that repeated controversial rulings mean the status quo is “not sustainable”, admitting there was a “problem” with the court.
He said: “The convention is a document that I think encapsulates some of the most fundamental human rights that we would all support and wish to continue supporting.
“But I think it’s the interpretation of that document by the court in Strasbourg that has caused us the problem.”
This autumn Justice Secretary Michael Gove will outline proposals to scrap the Human Rights Act – which enshrines the convention in British law – and replace it with a British Bill of Rights….
