‘The Put Upon & Bullied’ Will Suffer If Huma Rights Act Is Scrapped: Keir Starmer

Keir Starmer, a former director of public prosecution has defended the Human Rights Act in his Maiden Commons speech earlier this week. 

According to Starmer, those in the society who are “put upon and the bullied” stand to suffer a lot if Tories plans on moving on with their manifesto pledge that will see the Human Rights Act scrapped. In his common maiden speech which he presented on the floor of the house, Starmer issued a strong defense for the Human Rights Act giving reasons as to why it should not be scrapped. 

On May the 7th this year, during Britain’s national election, Starmer was elected as St Pancras and Holborn Labor MP. In his maiden commons speech he said that, “The proposed Human Rights Act will change how vulnerable people in the society are treated. The vulnerable in this case includes those who are currently in care homes as well as children who are victims of child abuse or even trafficked women who have been subjected to intense sexual as well as domestic violence.” 

“If we happen to scrap the proposed Human Rights Act then those who are in low pay as well as those who are currently in houses that are poor and those that are mentally and physically in need of good healthy are the ones who are bound to suffer.”

Following his speech, Starmer has received numerous congratulations including one from Gove who also went on to insist that reforming the Human Rights Act is the right thing to do.
