Judges have ruled that the Human Rights Act means that pedophiles cannot be prevented from free access to their own children – the link above gives details.
I’m in favour of more human rights being codified in our constitution (if we really had a modern one), but this European piece of crap needs to go. There are no such thing as inalienable rights for the individual; rather always circumstances in which people need to be treated fairly and proportionately. Using the term right loosely, children need to be treated in such a manner when parents go criminal or loopy.
I believe the rights issue could be key to a society free of injustice. Instead we remain medieval.
