UK needs to be independent to deport foreign criminals

There can be no more clear a demonstration that our politicians do not understand who controls this country, or are content to wilfully misrepresent the truth to continue deceiving many British people who simply do not understand where power resides.

The subject is the unsurprising revelation that 102 foreign criminals and illegal immigrants who were set for deportation have been able to stay in the UK by claiming that they had a ‘family life’ here which is covered in Article Eight of the European Convention on Human Rights.

The quote is carried by the Barclay Brother Beano and was made by Conservative MP, Dominic Raab:

Before the Human Rights Act, no criminal had ever claimed a right to family life to frustrate a deportation order in this country.

It is high time we changed the law, to restore some common sense and retain public confidence in our border controls.

If one wants to change something it is essential to understand the nature of the thing and honestly describe what must be done to change it. We do not have legal control over our borders.  It doesn’t matter if the Human Rights Act is kept or repealed. In order to rectify the situation of failed deportation efforts this country needs to take back control of its borders by having primacy over the law in this land.

The nature of the thing is clear. The UK is not independent, because UK politicians have subsumed it into the European Union without the permission of the electorate.  All the while the UK remains signatory to the European Convention on Human Rights and remains part of the EU, the law in England and Wales and that in Scotland and that in Northern Ireland, will never have primacy.

Until the UK is truly independent people will be able to appeal decisions beyond our Supreme Court in London to the European Court of Human Rights. Thus te UK will remain beholden to its real government in Brussels and its real seat of legal authority in Strasbourg.

That is the only answer . We need to take back the power our politicians have given away to European bodies. But Raab does not say that because he either does not understand it (unlikely), or (almost certainly) he knows he would fall foul of the man who controls his Parliamentary career prospects, the Europhile quisling overlord David Cameron.

Thus Raab is just another of Cameron’s useful idiots.  He is either too stupid to be an elected representative because he does not understand who runs this country, or like most of his Parliamentary colleagues he puts his own interests and the tribal demands of his political party before the interests of the people he was elected by – and is handsomely paid to serve – namely the British public.

    You cannot cut out a cancer because it is a living thing & has the right to life in the host body.
    I see the Economist has a cover story on bungabunga Silvio, ‘the man who screwed an entire country’ (or somesuch). No mention, I suppose, of our own dear, dull leaders who are the real experts….at least Silvio has flair!

    …..and I would suggest that the number mentioned is a gross & mendacious underestimate.

    This little arse-licker is my local MP.
    I’d like to email this post to him, with your permission of course.

    Nope – it’s the way it’s been enshrined in UK law and interpreted by our judges. Other European countries don’t seem to have this problem.

    I believe the majority of MP’s agree with the view above. Unfortunately we blame the deomcratically elected MP’s, and leave their official party machines quietly in the background.

    We should start attacking the Political party machines who instruct their MP’s on how they want them to act, whilst in the background those unelected party elites sit quietly unchallenged.

    It’s about time the media and Internet bloggers exposed the Political parties for exactly what they represent.

    We think we have a democratic Government. That is an illusion, when our elected politicians are forced to follow unelected unpublished party objectives, even when it is against the individual MPs’ concience and loyal supporters who voted for them.

    I wish there was a vigilante movement in our country that would solve this kind of problem for us. Dead people don’t cause problems. Or cost us anything.

    No country under the rule of the EU cab deport criminal foreigners. The Swiss though can do so, as they have just had a referendum on this issue. As you may guess, the politicians, the Swiss MSM were against the referendum proposal, but they did not carry the public.

    One can only have sovereign control of the borders if one is a sovereign nation..
