Take serious note of this article, and be thankful if you’re reading this in America.
This is the typical kind of crap that the Brits have to put up with on an almost daily basis.
If anyone in the USA of any political party should ever seriously suggest that the USA should join a union of some kind with Europe, the kind of treaty or document the Brits signed onto, anything that in any way might bond or tie us to anything even remotely similar, than I would hope that some patriotic American would grab a gun and kill whoever suggested the tie. And to be on the certain side of things, kill the family as well to send a message that it would never be tolerated. Not ever. And don’t smugly kid yourselves that nobody in the USA thinks along the lines the jerks here do. We have em okay.
They think the euros are way civilized what with the death penalty banned and all, and would welcome courts and the same system that operate the European Court of Human Rights.
I have said this a few times and I’ll keep saying it cos I know it to be true. There are agencies of the EU that actively fund things in the USA, usually to do with their version of what civil and human rights ought to be. They actively support and have funded anti death penalty groups in the states that still have it. That should bother you. It should piss you off.
Take a good look and read the court’s take on this case. Piss ant libtards. Why are they still breathing?
Take a look at this.
Illegal immigrant and failed asylum seeker handed £24,000 by Human Rights judges after ‘British law failed to protect her from slavery’ ( $37,248 )
An investigation by police officers found she was NOT a victim of slavery and was a criminal
A British judge also cast doubt on her credibility and described her story as ‘implausible’
By Steve Doughty
A failed asylum-seeker was handed thousands of pounds in compensation yesterday by European judges who claimed British law had failed to protect her from being treated as a slave.
The Ugandan came to Britain illegally on a false passport, became a care worker and was free to leave the house where she worked, the European Court of Human Rights heard.
Police investigating the 33-year-old’s case decided she was a criminal and a British judge cast doubt on her credibility, describing her story as ‘implausible’.
But the Strasbourg judges ruled that the woman, whose identity they shielded, suffered a breach of her rights as there was no UK law at the time specifically banning slavery. They ordered the Government to pay her £23,500, made up of £7,000 in compensation and £16,500 in expenses and costs.
The judgment marks another case in which Britain has been told that Acts of Parliament and common law have been inadequate to meet European demands.
Since then, the 2009 Coroners and Justice Act has been passed which specifically outlaws slavery.
However, Prime Minister David Cameron remains at odds with Strasbourg over the human rights judges’ demand that Britain allows convicted prisoners to vote.
The woman in the slavery case – identified only as CN – came to this country in 2002 on a false passport and visa provided by her uncle, identified only as PS.
He set her up as a care worker for an Iraqi couple in Leeds and £1,600 a month was paid for the work.
But, the woman alleged, the money was given to her uncle and she was never paid more than £20 or £40 when she was given an afternoon off each month.
She did not complain until 2006, four years later, when she collapsed in a bank and was treated in hospital after it was discovered she was HIV positive.
CN was given a flat by her local council, but her application for asylum, on the grounds she had fled sexual and physical violence in Uganda, failed.
Police investigations ended in 2009 following two inquiries into the woman’s complaints that she was held as a slave. A report from the Metropolitan Police Human Trafficking Team noted that she had been refused legitimate entry into Britain and had come in with a false passport and forged visa.
The woman had been paid through her relative ‘in order to hide from the authorities the fact that the victim did not have a national insurance number’.
The report went on: ‘If money was paid to her, then she would have had to pay tax and her false identity would have come to the notice of the tax office. This would then lead to her arrest and eviction from the UK.
‘There is no evidence to show that this female is a victim of slavery or forced labour. She willingly worked and was paid but she chose that the money should go to her uncle to conceal being in the UK. It is basically a situation that one criminal, her uncle, has taken all the proceeds of their crime.’
The British judge who heard CN’s asylum appeal ‘expressed serious concerns about the applicant’s credibility and found much of her account to be implausible’, the Strasbourg court heard.
But the European judges said that, because police investigated the complaints, they could not have been considered implausible. They insisted that the woman’s complaints were credible.
The court added that the inquiry should not have been carried out by a police unit dealing with human trafficking rather than slavery.
Britain was also obliged to prosecute any act aimed at enforcing slavery. The country’s law was ‘inadequate’ for the purpose, the European judges declared.
I’m amazed the Brits have stuck with it this long.
Or am I severely underestimating the liberalization/de-common sensing of the British people?
I pray this is not our future…
I said in the post as follows; “That should bother you. It should piss you off.”
You aside, how many people took time to comment on that post and that line?
Aside from our regulars who we know would fight that crap to the last, of all the American cities that visit the site, how many respond? It’s like ppl either don’t believe or don’t care. ??? Or maybe we’re being visited by liberals we don’t know about.
Pretty discouraging must say.
But I was telling the truth about EU agencies at work behind the scenes in USA because it is NOT a secret. A US senator interviewed on radio during election night even told about the many really nice Brits who were “Banging on doors for Obama” working as volunteers.
Shouldn’t that bother us?
Peiper, I’m often outraged by some of the stories I read here. But I don’t always comment, sometimes because I’m short of time, other times because it seems like another case of same shit, different day.
But just because I (or others, maybe...) don’t respond doesn’t mean we’re not upset, and that we don’t agree with you. It’s just that after a while one runs out of different ways to say “I’m outraged.”
Good point CenTex. I think you’re right now I think about it. I guess living here as an American in the middle of it all, I get a bit frustrated. And you are right again when you say same shit, different day.
