  • Nice to see so many women on this panel! So what did happen to Human Rights for women then in the English legal profession? The one representative cannot be everywhere at once can she. Come on who are you (the organisers of this farce) trying to fool. What a bizarre start to the consideration of an important matter. Which regime in the world can better that gender make up.

    The various governments over the past sixty years have petended that it does not exist but more and more people are aware of it and its importance to protecting the rights of British citizens, whatever they are doing it will not be for the benfit of the average person.

  • Let's face it the panel isn't representative of the multicultural society in the UK at all. One woman? Really? How are we supposed to put our trust in something like this? Where's Chakrabati from Liberty? An absolute pioneer in this field and she's just ignored. Pathetic and typical!
    We've just opted in to the EU directive on Anti-trafficking now we want to change our Human Rights Laws... M O'Brien you are right..."what are the politicians REALLY up to now" ?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?
