Iíve made this point in Parliament 3 times during the last week. The only way we can fully take back control of our immigration & asylum policy is by scrapping the ridiculous Human Rights Act.
In a sane country the newspapers would have jumped on this & he'd soon be 'spending more time with his family', in this country the papers have such a twisted sense of values I'm surprised they're not calling for him to be PM.

Human Rights Act is seen as an imposition by the EU

They never say which parts of the Human Rights Act they want to get rid of and why.

Here is a typical 'anti' comment

Remove the word * human*, because its dishonest.
it means all you need is to be human and in the UK to be entitled to food and a housing and free medical care.

No, there is no misunderstanding, they know exactly what they are campaigning against. That is why they lie so much.

If you need a laugh to brighten your day, Liz Truss has apparently just given Vladimir Putin a 'stern warning'.
