The Conservatives are drawing up plans to scrap the Human Rights Act and laying the groundwork to pull out of the European Convention on Human Rights. Help Layla and the Liberal Democrats save our Human Rights Act by signing the petition.
In Coalition, the Tories said they would abolish the Human Rights Act as quickly as possible if they had their own way.
They also threatened to walk away from the European Convention on Human Rights, with no guarantee about what would come in its place.
The only reason they could not follow through on their plans is because they were blocked time and again by the Liberal Democrats.
Now David Cameron – presiding over a wafer-thin majority and held to ransom by the extreme right wingers on his back benches – is back on the war path.
His first act in Government was not to explain how he planned to rip £12bn out of the welfare budget but a blatant, aggressive and cowardly attack on our human rights.
By drawing up plans to scrap the Human Rights Act (HRA) and laying the groundwork to pull out of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) – the Tories are revealing their true colours.
It sends a clear message to the British people: the next five years will be nastier, less liberal and less compassionate than any Government in living memory.
