Safe Mode: On
Immigrant 'Abuse' Of Human Rights Law To End

Home Secretary Theresa May plans to crack down on the "abuse" of
human rights laws that prevent foreign criminals being thrown out of Britain.
Vowing to stop all but the most "exceptional cases" succeeding on appeal, Mrs May has said tougher immigration rules will be in place by the summer.

She has become convinced that tighter controls are needed to prevent
criminals turning to Article 8 of the European Convention on Human
Rights - "the right to a family life" - in order to remain in the
country.

If it's tested in the courts and we find there's a
problem we'll obviously look at other measures, but I'm confident in
what we're proposing to do.

The plans involve directing judges rather than bringing in new legislation.

Mrs May told The Sunday Telegraph: "It's been causing a lot of
concern, not just to the Government but also to an awful lot of members
of the public.

"By the summer, we will have in place new immigration rules which I believe will end that abuse.

"If it doesn't - if it's tested in the courts and we find there's a
problem - we'll obviously look at other measures, but I'm confident in
what we're proposing to do."

The Home Secretary has faced criticism over moves to legislate for the real-time surveillance of the emails, texts, phone calls and internet use of every person in the UK.

Civil liberties groups have condemned the move as a "snoopers' charter" - and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg pledged to curb the plans.

Mrs May said: "I would expect us to be able to do this in a bill in
the next session, but in a way that enables people to have a sight of the clauses."

  • If I'm reading this correctly, the Court Bench is making up its own version of laws and not following the rule of law directed by the sitting government.

    Nice, huh?

    Self Appointed Judge & Jury, unelected persons sitting in Judges positions over exercising their position within government.

    Question, UK people. Who appointed these Judges to be supreme beings over the whole of the country. It was always the position of the Judge to rule over points of law, NOT MAKE LAWS.

    • @Less1leg are you crazy who in their right minds elects governments to make laws ?? they are there to GOVERN.
      NOT I REPEAT they never have had any authority to MAKE LAWS.
      it is the POORLY EDUCATED PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THEY CAN PASS LAWS.
      no western democracy has ever given its mp's that power. but as i said we are now a country off people with no education on the way it should be.

    • @weadone
      You should re-evaluate what you just said. "who in their right minds elects governments to make laws". It is the very reason why the UK is a pisshole of politically correct assholes who permit Islam to run all over you and to make Human Rights Commissions to screw you Brits right in the arse. Voting for Labour Party, or Liberal Party's all fuck you in the arse royally. And the fucking so called Conservatives. They don't know how to piss standing up. When's the last time you s More..
