Replace the Human Rights Act

Today I led a debate in the House on the need for a UK Bill of Rights to replace the detested Human Rights Act.

With three quarters of Britons believing human rights are a charter for criminals and the undeserving change is needed.

I opened the debate with a speech setting out why I felt the time was right to repeal the HRA.

The debate drew extremely interesting observations from my colleagues, and you can read their contributions, the response from the Justice Minister and my speech in full here.

I believe that you are a very good MP. However unless you get that idiot (call me Dave) sorted you will lose my vote to the UKIP candidate. I have already voted in the local elections in that direction after a lifetime of being a Conservative voter.
