It is notable that a growing number of our UK politicians keep talking about “Repatriating Power back from Brussels to the UK” – but what exactly do they mean by this and who will actually benefit from such an action?

One of the most protective pieces of legislation introduced into the UK has been the Human Rights Act. As it stands, it protects the man in the street from bullies – plain and simple.

Bullies come in all shapes and sizes and they are to be found amongst politicians operating in national and local government, the police, law courts, large corporate bodies, employers in general, the National Health Service, trade unions, schools and just about any walk of life one can think of.

Sadly and all too often it has been used by lawyers in their defence of terrorists to enable them to avoid deportation. Of course governments curse it in these circumstances and blame the EU for its inadequacy in this particular instance but there is more than an ounce of humbug about these utterances.

Instead of seeking to AMEND the law in this respect through negotiation with other EU members they simply keep whining about it as if it were some infectious disease.

Their real motive is to gain support from the electorate for the total abolition of the Human Rights Act through press releases and newspaper propaganda. The Act has a limiting effect on that which governments and their ‘friends’ can get away with in terms of legislation without fear of reproach or penalty.

Governments are very skilful at discriminating between one group of citizens and another to enable ‘themselves’ to reduce spending without proportionality. Fortunately the Human Rights Act does provide the unfortunate victims of such treatment with a means of bringing the government to book for their actions and this is the real face of democracy. It is the ‘justice’ that would be erstwhile lost.

For public bodies to take actions which over-exploit the planning rules to the detriment of many others who perhaps cannot afford to employ a lawyer to oppose their bullying ways, the Human Rights Act is a God-send.

One only has to think of the day to day challenges we all face in our lives to see how vulnerable we would become without the natural defences of the Human Rights Act – even if a small minority are currently able to avoid justice by abusing it.

Please do not be mistaken – any power that is repatriated from the EU will not be to the benefit of the public – it will only strengthen the hands of the politicians where they will stay and it is they who are already skilful enough in greasing their own palms by ensuring that laws are passed to permit them to do this.

You only have think about the allowances that these people award themselves from luxury accommodation when travelling, sumptuous meals out at the taxpayer’s expense, endless and virtually unlimited energy costs covered for second homes, etc. etc.

What say do we the voters and all essentially the ‘Taxpayers’ have in these matters?

In the event of Brexit – we will lose power but the powerful will gain more!

Please think before placing you vote. Thank you

Thank you for your opinion. However, the UK is far from being oppressed by the EU. We are one of the leaders not followers.

This proposal is in my opinion a clear breach of EU law.
