Beyond A Question Of Poor Judgement

Within four days of learning that a paedophile's park ban had been lifted because of his Human Right to 'keep fit' we learned that a Nigerian rapist had escaped deportation after European judges ruled that he had a right to 'private life' in Britain.

Akindoyin Akinshipe, 24, was due to be sent home after losing appeal after appeal in the British courts over his jailing for an attack on a girl of 13. But in a staggering reversal yesterday, the European Court of Human Rights said this would breach his right to a 'private and family life.

Time and time again we have witnessed unelected and unaccountable judges, sitting in this Country and the EU, using the loony Human Rights legislation to elevate the rights of criminals above those of their victims.

Two Cabinet Ministers have already demonstrated their ongoing support of this Charter for criminals and perverts.

Let me say something really clear about the Human Rights Act. In fact I'll do it in words of one syllable. - Nick Clegg, 21 September 2011.

My party will destroy the Government if it tries to scrap the hated European Human Rights laws - Chris Huhne, 21 September, 2011.

Cameron can't afford to support Clegg and Huhne by remaining silent. He must act now and sack them from his Cabinet.
