Why we oppose the legislation

Click here for an overview of problems with the Bill.
A summary of the original case against the legislation can be found here.

A more detailed case is given on the following pages:

  1. The claims the Government and other supporters made in the media are spin rather than fact
  2. The justifications given in official Government documents don’t stand up to scrutiny
  3. The legislation in all likelihood will have serious unintended consequences
  4. The legislation as a whole is shot through with hypocrisy
  5. The legislation is likely to breach the European Convention on Human Rights and the
    Human Rights Act, according to Rabinder Singh QC.
