BoJo Government obscures major threat to human rights in England say women activists
“When government decides to overhaul human rights legislation in the midst of America’s demand that the UK hand over Julian Assange in a deportation effort America has been losing in the majority of public opinion polls;
in the midst of a Pandemic; and
at Christmas time,
in the midst of a raucous fight over the population being locked in their homes while Boris Johnson parties with his friends,”
you know such legislation is intended to rob our rights,” says Elizabeth Kierney, a women’s rights activist living in North London.
Do you think that Boris Johnson is doing well or badly as Prime Minister?
A miserably small twenty-four percent of Brits are saying they approve of the job Boris Johnson is doing, according to to YouGov Polls.
Prime Minister Johnson has a minus sixty-four percent (disapproval) rating that seems to be rising as his dismal approval drops further according to YouGov Polls.
Convoluted talk of new, worrisome, human rights legislation.
“Bo Jo the clown‘s headlining missteps plus massive COVID-19 mandates putting a damper on yet another Christmas in the UK, smothers a worrisome and convoluted new human rights legislation in the making, as Conservative MPs’ shout their unhappiness with Boris Johnson’s questionable leadership,” says Ms. Kierney.
Women’s rights advocates say, “this epic change in thinking will rob Britain’s people of even more rights as the government becomes more accustomed to ruling roughshod over the people during the pandemic,” explains Geraldine Frisque, spokesperson for the RINJ Foundation, a global civil society women’s rights advocacy.
“Our legal people are pressing alarm buttons on the recent subtle abdication of Britain’s human rights to the convenience of the American bullies that now hold Britain by the tail as the UK’s trade with the European Union tanks, post Brexit, and its fight with a senior member of the EU, France, drowns a lot of hope in the English Channel,” she added.
Lost in the parliamentary scuffles and news headlines over corruption, Boris Johnson’s many lies about Christmas parties and such, is a move to discourage British courts from putting any stock, in the higher bar European Union Courts’ edicts on human rights.
Instead, the UK Department of Justice seeks a “proper balance between individuals’ rights, personal responsibility and the wider public interest”.
Cited in Department of Justice statements are circumstances like in the case of Julian Assange, where the person subject to deportation, in the view of the DoJ should not be using family concerns or health as an argument against deportation because otherwise the processes are draining “energy and resource of courts”.
Dominic Raab, justice secretary, wants a new British bill of rights. “Our plans,” he said, “for a Bill of Rights, will strengthen typically British rights like freedom of speech and trial by jury, while preventing abuses of the system and adding a healthy dose of common sense,” he is oft repeating.
“The Human Rights Act will be revised under plans unveiled by the Justice Secretary Dominic Raab today (14 December),” announced the UK DoJ hours ago.
“Crucially, the proposed measures will restore Parliament’s role as the ultimate decision-maker on laws impacting the UK population, allowing more scope to decide how we interpret rulings from the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. This will put an end to us gold plating any decisions made by Strasbourg when we incorporate them into UK law,” says the UK Ministry of Justice and The Rt Hon Dominic Raab MP (Published 14 December 2021)
- “Three-month consultation launched as new balance sought on human rights;
- “Permission stage proposed to deter spurious human rights claims’ and
- “Move to strengthen rights and restore public confidence in the system.”
“The new British two-class system, us-versus-them, the ‘them’ being everyone outside of 10 Downing Street, has us locked in our homes and Boris Johnson and friends having one party after another with no masks, no social distancing, all the while they are laughing at us as we freeze in the dark, huddling over a candle at Christmas,” scolds women’s rights activist Elizabeth Kierney of North London.
“The global pandemic has clobbered women’s earnings, status and rights, and it has also created climate for tolerance of draconian theft of civil liberties by governments,” Ms. Kierney said in a Telegram Messenger interview.
“Under a dark messy cloud of public disgust for government, horrid corruption, overbalance, and total national disarray, the UK government will slip a bill through that robs people of their rights, in three months, over Christmas and New Years with the whole of the British public locked in their homes,” complains Ms. Kierney.
