    Does anyone agree that May should tear up our human rights?

    I Can't believe anyone can actually trust a word she says. Coming after your human rights. But at least you'll see return on that in two years with her negotiating skills when come out of the EU. Because she's shown no fear debating other politicians has she.

    What she actually said was -

    She is prepared to throw out human rights laws if they restrict new tougher legislation to tackle terrorism.
    She will make it easier to deport foreign terror suspects back “to their own countries” and would “restrict the freedom and movements of terrorist suspects” if re-elected on 8 June.

    Yes I am very happy for her to do that.

    Not "our" human rights but terrorists don't deserve the same rights. I wouldn't even give them the same rights as a stray dog!

    She is appealing to those who believe the current bill focuses too much on rights of offenders. Clearly the intention of the Bill is to protect common people in daily life. The argument being that when someone commits certain crimes then they cease to have a right to such 'Human Rights' by committing acts a normal human being wouldn't do.

    I find it disgraceful anyone can say that a murderer or terrorist deserves human rights - when they themselves have taken someone else's life, they have taken some else's rights. All the Bill needs is reforming with break clauses for certain abhorrent crimes.

    People who say "Criminals shouldn't have human rights" miss the entire point of them. If they don't apply to everyone then they don't really apply to anyone, because you can simply accuse those you want to abuse of a crime and suddenly everything you do to them is completely legal.

    No, but I also don't think she said that. That was just a headline.

    No, but on the understanding that if you break the law you have no rights other than a right to a trial by jury.

    They were shot and killed. What would us having less human rights do to help in this instance? Why doesn't she stop selling weapons to the saudi's?

    I agree we shouldn't supply weapons to Saudi Arabia. There are rights that protect you from being detained, right to liberty, rights to privacy, protection of personal data etc. I these are rights that protect you before you do something wrong.

    I'm not saying I approve of her message, just that I don't think we need to embellish things to show she isn't suitable to be PM.

    She wants​ to tear up human rights in pursuit of SUSPECTED terrorists. The bar for suspicion is incredibly low and certainly not clear-cut. The risk is authorities claiming suspicion as an excuse for pursuing anyone for anything.

    OK, it seems as usual there are a select bunch that cannot comprehend basic things and this one being that we do not have to lose all our rights ourselves in order for criminals to lose theirs.

    Of course we all think terrorists should be punished for the maximum possible for their crimes but personally, I would not waiver my own rights to guarantee this.

    As has already been said, the bill could easily be amended to exclude certain crimes if they really wanted but that isn't what they really want and you fools just fall for it.

    To be fair to the terrorists they are doing a great job of either blowing themselves up, or forcing anti-terror police to shoot them. Murderers, rapists, child abusers shouldn't have human rights either, they take the rights of their victims so shouldn't hide behind a bill of rights. Like I have said in the quoted comment, the Bill doesn't need ripping up but I would like to see some perpetrators of some crimes excluding from it - Terror, Murder, Rape, Child Abuse - To name a few really bad ones. That doesn't need normal every day people to lose any rights whatsoever.

    the human rights was introduced in around 1998 as i recall and it's been used and abused ever since.
    prisoners who are serving life for murder have used it because their food isn't cooked by professional chefs! pedofiles abusing the law because of the stupidest things but as soon as the quote "my human rights are being violated" the law ball starts to roll.
    i have seen squatters take over peoples premises and claim they cannot be evicted due to... Human rights!
    it needs a complete overhaul as its too easily quoted and used by criminals to bypass the law

    First time in my life I'm voting Conservative this election. Not that I fully agree with them, but Labour are the most regressive I have ever seen. Such a shame.

    This story seems like a headline for scaremongering and selling papers.

    Yeah but this is to grab a few votes. She hasn't sat down and thought about it in depth. It wasn't in the conservative manifesto. It's another u-turn. If you want someone to rip up human rights and start again I think Paul Nuttall is your man.

    I don't think I trust your headline, "Tear Up", our human rights have been around since the Magna Carta and some modern ones are directly from UN (via EU), a minor tweak, may be, not tearing up unless you are suggesting North Korea style human rights for Britain.

    Agree that's just a headline.

    funny thing that, many of us have short memories about the number of times there has been press about wanting to scrap it, its certainly not the first time, and if the conservatives had a majority last time it would have been through but the Lib Dems would never agree to it.

    quick google shows its been talked for years and years.

Well it depends on what sort of watch list he was on. Come on even the normal JC lovers cannot agree with that.

    Which bits here legislation.gov.uk/ukp…nts is to be torn up for example? Could you reference the section numbers to be torn up?

    It is obvious that the way May expressed it was as rhetoric in the run up to election day, but yes, human rights needs to be amended,as it is continually abused. Since the UK is Brexiting, a Bill of Rights will be introduced anyway, regardless of your party affiliation.

    It is necessary if the UK wants sovereignty of it's laws, and will mean that the human rights laws as we know them right now will change, it's just a matter of time.

    ​'hatred specs'? Well that's a bizarre phrase you've used.

    Concern about security isn't about hatred but feel free to spin it any way you want.

    only fact I need is you are on a terror watch list you arent getting into this country, full stop. Not much more facts you need, if you dont agree with the fact you are there, work that out before trying to get into the country. I cannot get into many countries across the world without a proper visa, so why should someone on a watch list think they can just walk in. Time for our Politicians to wake up to this including a man who wants to be our MP.
