Withdraw the UK from the European Convention on Human Rights
We ask the UK Government to withdraw the UK from the European Convention on Human Rights and the jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights. We believe this is necessary for the UK to fully take control of our borders, as promised during the Brexit referendum.
During the Brexit referendum the people of the UK were promised that the government would take back control of our borders, our money, and our laws. Time and time again we see some asylum seekers putting their lives at risk to illegally breach those borders. The UK Government then has to use millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money to defend laws made in Parliament to control our borders. We feel this is unacceptable. The ECHR should have no say on what happens in the UK.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
