Lionel Blackman   -      Independent Candidate 2015

Why? Because the local Conservative Parliamentary Candidate and Lord Chancellor Chris Grayling wants to take the United Kingdom out of our international system of human rights protection. Chris Grayling is the leading proponent of the Conservative Party's manifesto pledge to "scrap" the Human Rights Act. Moreover, despite a promise to do so, he has published no new draft law that would take its place!

We need to stop him.                                     Open letter to Chris Grayling

The repeal of the Human Rights Act will prevent decisions of the European Court of Human Rights from being taken into account by UK courts. This will have dangerous repercussions around the world. Mr. Grayling underestimates the United Kingdom’s influence across the world. We will set a bad example that many countries will follow. Do we really want to be the first country out of 47 in the Council of Europe  to turn our back on international human rights?

The European Court of Human Rights decides against the United Kingdom in less than 2% of cases. A small price to pay for us to stay a part of an essential international system that protects the human rights of 750 million people in 47 countries.
