Is The Uk Government Undermining Our Basic Eu Human Rights?

Recommended Posts

These are a few of the articles in the EU Human Rights Charter:

Article 5 Prohibition of slavery and forced labour

1. No one shall be held in slavery or servitude.

2. No one shall be required to perform forced or compulsory labour.

<<Is it a bit extreme to petition that the housing boom has allowed banks to enslave us?>>

Article 9 Right to marry and right to found a family

The right to marry and the right to found a family shall be guaranteed in accordance with the national laws governing the exercise of these rights.

<< Must be of interest to anyone trying to rent but knocked back because they have children? Any hint of a "no children" and perhaps a landlord or agent should be informed? >>

Article 20 Equality before the law

Everyone is equal before the law.

<<Our MPs clearly think they are above it. I would like any MP who has flipped houses to be prosecuted for taking our money. >>

Is what Lord Taylor did

any worse than this?

It seems flipping has cost taypayers a lot more than a few travel expenses.

Article 33 Family and professional life

1. The family shall enjoy legal, economic and social protection.

<<I don't think bankers getting bonuses for helping to ruin the economy is enough economic protection. >>

Article 38 Consumer protection

Union policies shall ensure a high level of consumer protection

<<We don't have any effective consumer protection in the UK. Petrol prices! British Gas raising prices as winter starts and OFGEM are going to look into it and report back next summer! Does anyone think the whole energy industry is a cartel ripping us off? Does anyone think BT are repeatedly raising prices to plug their pension deficit? The VAT rises being used as a cover to raise prices more than warranted by it?

Any citizen, acting individually or jointly with others, may at any time exercise his right of petition to the European Parliament under Article 194 of the EC Treaty

I think this Nimbyism and crooked credit policies have pushed things to the point that growing numbers of Brits are having their basic human rights challenged.

Like its not alright to deny a family their basic human right of housing and economic security, because the new housing might block a view of greenspace.

Our leaders need to re-read the 1948 Universal Declarationof Human Rights, passed by the general assembly of the United Nations. http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/index.shtml

For example:

Article 23.

(1) Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favourable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment.

(2) Everyone, without any discrimination, has the right to equal pay for equal work.

(3) Everyone who works has the right to just and favourable remuneration ensuring for himself and his family an existence worthy of human dignity, and supplemented, if necessary, by other means of social protection.

(4) Everyone has the right to form and to join trade unions for the protection of his interests.

You have a right to work. Millions and millions unemployed and told to screw off and die is clearly violating that article. And a just and favourable remuneration to support a family worth of human dignity. Well we are a loong ways from that now. The extremely low minimum wage is going beyond bad policy, its violating peoples human rights.

And firing people who are trying to form trade unions is yet another violation.

Absolutely right. The whole thing started with the Town and Country Planning Act 1947, removing from the people the right to build in their own land. A Radio 4 programme a few days ago mentioned that even workers had little self-built country cottages before that Act.
