    What? like Cherie Booth?
    B£iar only stuck us with the human rights act to provide work for his wife.

      Human rights lawyer? What a depressing use of a supposedly decent education.

      Just remember anyone working for the state; ie solicitors in local government are by definition no good enough to hack it in the real world. Like wise any councillor or MP dependant on their allowances or salary should not be offering themselves for public service. Parasites every one!

    How friendly is Ken with Leon Brittan though? How many secret ughmdebates have they had together over the years?

    Ken gets plenty of bucks from the fag industry as well.

      I think Clarke is being the voice of reason in the Tory party.

      There’s noting anti-Tory in defending the HRA.

        The voice of Treason – to be precise. One day you just might work it out.

        Don’t know about the Tory Party, but then did the Voice of Reason ever have a place on this site?

          Anony whoeveryouare – Go and read up about Treason and the current crop of our MP’s who have committed it and continue to deny it … you just might have your eyes opened – but only if you can think for yourself without having some pitiful tribal political leaning?

          • It's The Same Old Song says:

            How many people on this site hate: paying tax, Health & Safety rules, Human Rights, the Chavs, Public Services, the unemployed, the poor, the Left-Wing…? Now That’s What I Call Pitiful Tribal Leanings.

      £lands says:

      The real question is why the bosses/right wing Tories keep attacking, not just Heath & Safety, but Human Rights? Maybe they want to retain their forced, wage-free, labour?

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
