First Step Back to Sanity

Given this from the Sunday Times, this from the Sunday Telegraph and this from the Observer the time seems ripe to grasp the nettle of extracting the UK from the disastrous implementation of the 1998 Human Rights Act.

As a first (I admit, mostly symbolic) step in rescuing our society from the lunacy of Euro-inspired activist decision makers I propose the following :

The Civic Responsibilities Act 2006

An Act to commence the process of injecting some reality into public decision making in the United Kingdom.

[14th May 2006]

BE IT ENACTED by the Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:-

1. - The Human Rights Act 1998 is hereby repealed.
2. - (1) This Act may be cited as The Civic Responsibilities Act 2006.
(2) All provisions shall come into force on the day the Act is passed.

As with all difficult situations once the decision is made to do something then subsequent actions become easier to contemplate. What about reservations or opt outs from the ECHR itself? What about reviewing our relationship with European institutions that have as a precondition of membership adherence to that convention? By flying this kite the Lord Chancellor may have opened a Pandoras' Box he and his government may find difficult to close.
