Rights

Every now and then you hear of someone getting one over on the state due to some right that the law or judge misinterpreted and agreed with. There was a case last year where a prisoner argued he had a right to a family life for instance. 

So where would you find a list of these apparent rights?

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Rights

That's what shoud happen, in reality it does not, I suspect virtually everyone on this forum can think of examples where these rights have been infringed with little or no action taken.

Re: Rights

Problem is we need a human duties act. To much emphasis on entitlement and not enough emphasis on what you should contribute. Our fathers would not understand what we've done to the society they handed on to us Angry

Re: Rights

Not sure about that last sentence, our Fathers might not understand what we have done to society but I suspect it was as bad or even worse in their day as much was brushed under the carpet, children were never believed over what a adult said and the way some people were treated because of mental illness or some physical condition was awful.

Still goes on today but at least we recognise the fact and attempt to address it
