    I cannot support any authority which takes away rights from citizens.Something as important as this should be put to the people as an independent issue.

      The urge to suggest, “That’s right – they want you to pay for them”…
      … was just too strong, I’m afraid.

    Yep I support them 100% it’s a really good idea that the Government can decide what Rights we have or do not have…… Now we exit the Twilight Zone……..

    To be honest, who in their right mind would trust any UK Government with a Bill of Rights?

    The whole point of ensuring rights is that those in charge should not have direct say in what is a right and what is not. Otherwise they can remove them whenever they choose, then they are no longer called rights they are called Liberties.

    Liberties can be revoked at any time.

    Rather than repealing the the Human Rights Act. Instead we should be implementing more of the European Convention of Human Rights.

    So that all of the requirements of the ECHR becomes law in the UK.

    I’m studying law and have an understanding of human rights and God help us if this happens, it will be disastrous for all.

    Yes I would like the only official document guaranteeing me any rights abolished. I would also like to stick pins in my eyes while gargling frog spawn dipped in excrement. But then again I am a Tory voter.. Sorry my evil half took over my laptop there for a few moments – of course I don’t support them, I’m not stupid.

      Do you remember the Spitting Image sketch in which John Major and his cronies went knocking on doors asking voters if they voted Tory, and when one said “Yes,” they all danced around him shouting, “Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!”? Your comment just reminded me of it.

    Why do they want to do this? It’s obvious: they don’t think of those who need such protection as human.

    Observation of human rights distinguishes democratic leaders from dictators and despots. Human Rights are the bedrock of our democracy, they are universal, and are a reflection of a society’s and a governments’ recognition of the equal worth of every citizens’ life.

    I voted YES because I don’t want my human rights. They are horrid. I can’t wait for my human rights to be removed once and for all. It is terrible to enjoy civil protection. I am here to work for free until I die, accept state brutality (and even imprisonment without trial). A quality of life safeguarded by human rights is terrible! Let’s scrap all Human Rights Laws. It is lovely to live in a state like North Korea!

    If the TORIES get this right and end our human rights, then this country would end up like North Karea, the sick and disabled would be buried alive because who could stop them. The TORIES truly are the nasty party.
