European Human Rights Legislation
Protocol 1, Article 3 requires the government to support your right to free expression
Protocol 1, Article 3 of the Human Rights Act requires the government to support your right to free expression by holding free elections at reasonable intervals. These elections must enable you to vote in secret.
Are there restrictions to this right?
The right to free elections is absolute. This means it must never be restricted in any way. (fixed term is a restriction)
However, the government can put some limits on the way elections are held. It can also decide what kind of electoral system to have – such as ‘first past the post’, as in UK general elections, or proportional representation.
It seems to me that commie corbyn is clearly frustrating this protocol in clear defiance of the elected government and the majority of the electorate.
It must be time to drag his sorry arse off to court for wholesale abuse of our human rights, along with all who voted with him on both occasions!
