On Liberty

On 11 September 2001 our world changed The West's response to 911 has morphed into a period of exception Governments have decided that the rule of law and human rights are often too costly In On Liberty Shami Chakraba This book is written in the dry and unchallenging style used by many barristers it sets out an argument in favour of Human Rights and in opposition to recent British governments of all persuasions with supporting evidence from well known cases that have been in our news over the past decade and in unpretentious language that aims for clarity and simplicity It has no literary pretensions This approach would work better if the Home Office referred to as Mordar or The Dark Tower because of its steady production of evil did not devise such fiendishly convoluted legal devices to misrepresent the most blatant abuse of human rights as something else It is obviously necessary to unravel and expose this abuse but the resulting text can sometimes reuire slow and perhaps even repeated reading occasionally because it is complicated but often because it is so astonishing The point this book makes in language that is calm and understated is that the UK has a government system which consciously persistently and with great ingenuity sets about depriving people of their most basic human rights and would go much further if it were not challenged and held to account by organisations like Liberty by institutions like the Strasbourg Courts by clear and definitive principles set out in the European Convention on Human Rights and brought into British legislation by the 1998 Human Rights Act These are laws that Britain played a major part in writing and persuading other countries to accept at the end of World War Two they are courts that cannot force the British Government to do a single thing it does not wish to do but can only make its rulings and express its opinions for the British Government to consider Not only is the British Government free to break every clause of the Human Rights Act if it so chooses but in practice that is exactly what it does do As an aside it is interesting to compare the sanctions to which the government will cheerfully expose itself if it fails to comply with some of its free trade agreements I think of the imminent proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership TTIP Like a typical barrister Chakrabarti sets out her arguments and her supporting evidence but is not strident or overbearing in her style is not even nasty to the people she holds responsible for blatant abuses of human rights or the people who tell lies about Human Rights law or the people who actively propagate false stories and illogical arguments to undermine public support for the victims of government abuse which is often atrocious She trusts instead that the evidence will in itself be sufficient to secure the support she needs in order to continue working on our behalf to shine a light on The Dark Tower and to combat the evil that is produced in Mordar After considering the evidence in this book those negative metaphors will seem than appropriate for their target Indeed my own conclusion is that we now need another book something far strident and forceful to expose graphically and fully the abuses referred to in this book but that is a challenge for another writer maybe another Orwell maybe another Russell Brand Chakrabarti has done her job very well Long may she continue her work But this is a story that cries out for emotion anger tears shame Cotas Claim exception Governments have decided that the rule of law and human rights are often too costly In On Liberty Shami Chakraba This book is written in the dry and unchallenging style used by many barristers it sets out an argument in favour of Human Rights and in opposition to recent British governments of all persuasions with supporting The Captured Princess (Taken by Vikings, evidence from well known cases that have been in our news over the past decade and in unpretentious language that aims for clarity and simplicity It has no literary pretensions This approach would work better if the Home Office referred to as Mordar or The Dark Tower because of its steady production of Pamięć - brzemię i uwolnienie.

Rti who joined Liberty the UK's leading civil rights organization on 10 September 2001 explores why our fundamental rights and freedoms are indispensable She shows too the unprecedented pressures those rights are unde A really great exploration of the importance of our human rights and the often difficult balancing act involved in upholding them There was potential for Shami to get much deeper into some of the issues she raises but ultimately this would turn off many readers possibly new to the ideas discussed from picking the book up at all As such I think it is aimed just right The arguments and style are such that novices and experts alike can appreciate the points raised for discussion and whether you agree with Shami or not no one can argue that the discussion isn t important The book is perhaps a little outdated since it was written during the time of the coalition government but that does not detract from the relevance of the ideas and the last sentence is perhaps particularly pertinent given the current political hot potato Trust me you won t know what you had till it s gone

    A really great exploration of the importance of our human rights and the often difficult balancing act involved in upholding them There was potential for Shami to get much deeper into some of the issues she raises but ultimately this would turn off many readers possibly new to the ideas discussed from picking the book up at all As
