Dominic Raab accused of ‘racist’ overhaul of Human Rights Act

Last Updated: April 3, 2022By Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Dominic Raab: it has been said that racists love to drape themselves in their country’s flag – and now we find he is injecting racism into his overhaul of human rights in the UK.

This Site – and others – told you years ago that if the Conservatives had a chance to modify your human rights, you would suffer. This is just one example.

Dominic Raab wants to strip human rights protections from people who have been targeted by police for ‘stop and search’ procedures and/or questioning over their immigration status.

Ethnic minority groups are far more likely to have been targeted in these ways and Raab knows it. But he still wants them to be used as excuses to deny people human rights protections.

That is racist.

We should be glad Liberty is fighting against this:

“Migrants, prisoners and people with historic ‘poor conduct’ won’t get the same rights as those with citizenship, or without a criminal record, which will have racist impacts”, Martha Spurrier, the organisation’s director, told The Independent.

“It will put over-policed communities at risk of losing their rights – even though these are the groups most likely to face a human rights violation by the state.”

The warning comes as Liberty warns the shake-up is far more draconian than expected, something obscured in recent months by public focus on Covid, Partygate and the Ukraine war.

And if you think this is bad, you can be sure that worse is to follow.
