The Justice Minister is reportedly also seeking a “crackdown” on the so-called “human rights industry,” introducing measures intended to reduce the compensation individuals can win from public bodies following human rights claims. Human rights groups have described the Government’s desire to scrap the Human Rights Act “destructive”. The Ministry of Justice claimed the details leaked over the weekend were “speculation”. PM David Cameron seems oblivious to the fact that Human Rights are not objects to be bartered away. They arose from struggles that were begun long ago, by past generations who gave their lives for these rights to be enshrined in our laws.
