Much of the UK Press has been highly critical of the Human Rights Act, and the anger appears to be rising in the run-up to the European Parliament elections and the 2015 General Election.
‘Inhuman Rights’ (The Sun, 26 June 2013)
‘The 5000 crooks we can’t deport’ (The Sun, 27 October 2011)
‘Social ties keep rapists in Britain’ (The Daily Mail, 21 September 2011)
‘Human rights is a charter for criminals and parasites our anger is no longer enough’ (14 July 2012)
Baroness Helena Kennedy will examine the arguments of the UK Press and assess whether individual cases bear out the criticisms of the Human Rights Act.
