Rights bill hard to swallow
Well I hope someone records your conversation since the courts will have to give special weight to the views of “elected lawmakers” in the future.
It isn’t unusual for ministers of all parties to support new legislation with claptrap. But this Bill actually contains claptrap in its provisions. Rhetoric with deliberately imprecise overtones has no place in legislation. The scariest aspect is that this Bill deliberately misstates its own aims.
And if a reason to do something is “compelling”, why need it also be “exceptional”?
