Ooops!

Protocol 1 Art.1 of the European Convention on Human Rights provides:

(1) Every natural or legal person is entitled to the peaceful enjoyment of his possessions. No one shall be deprived of his possessions except in the public interest and subject to the conditions provided for by law and by the general principles of international law.
(2) The preceding provisions shall not, however, in any way impair the right of a state to enforce such laws as it deems necessary to control the use of property in accordance with the general interest or to secure the payment of taxes or other contributions or penalties.

I wonder what the same landlords would say behind closed doors about Article 25?

Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognises the right to housing as part of the right to an adequate standard of living.[1] It states that:

Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control."

How does that square with 'no DSS', 'no children', 'no pets', 'no unemployed' etc...?

And there, once again, is the lie to BTL landlord claims that they are fighting Clause 24 for the tenants. When they raise £50k to fight a Human Rights case demanding the Government act against landlords who discriminate against children, with no prospect of financial gain from the case themselves, then I might start to believe that they care about tenants.
