Where do your candidates stand? (1) Civil Liberties

QUESTIONS EVERY CANDIDATE SHOULD ANSWER

Whatever the party manifestos may say, the finer points of a future Brexit settlement are by no means done and dusted, regardless of the makeup of the next government.

The Campaign for an Independent Britain will be producing a few questionnaires for you to mail to all your prospective Parliamentary candidates. The will address issues where so far, what we have heard from Mrs May’s Government has not been particularly encouraging. We want to raise the profile of these issues and make it clear that we will not accept a half-baked Brexit.

Our first downloadable questionnaire covers civil liberties, particularly the European arrest Warrant. If you would like to know more about this subject, Torquil Dick-Erikson’s speech at a CIB meeting last March will provide you with the main points of concern.

Our questionnaire can be downloaded here. Please feel free to print off as many copies as you like

    Excellent article and speech. Frederic Bastiat in his book “The Law,” stated “The Law is justice, or rather, the Law should be a defence against injustice.” I suggest that when the Law becomes the instrument of injustice, it ceases to be legitimate or valid, and becomes oppression.
    My understanding on the ECHR and Britain is, until Blair and Maastricht signed us all up, and before The European Communities Act signed away our country, British Law was Supreme under the Act of Supremacy. It is also my understanding on the ECHR Article 6, having looked it up for a Polish Client in CAB, that an accused has a right under the ECHR to be present, and defended, at any Court Proceedings – a Civil Judgement had been made against him without him being given the right to be there. That would make being found ‘Guilty in Absentia’ unlawful under the Convention.
    It seems to me that Britain, or more specifically British Politicians, is very much like my old Games Master. He was the only one who knew what the rules were, and the only one who followed the rules, so our Rugby Team kept on being heavily defeated.
    We need to LEAVE, and leave all EU baggage behind.
