    Default Any good lawyers here?

    I'm sure, based on the various interpretations used at times, that the potential hike in red diesel prices could be blocked as a breach of our human rights. Or don't we have any right to fun unless it is approved by the cronies?

    OK, perhaps a bit wild, but why not?

    I've been waiting for somebody to start on about human rights!

    There's no such thing as a "right to fun"

    Wild? Yes.

    Laughable? Yes.

    Counterproductive? Yes

    OK how about "right to peaceful enjoyment of chosen lifestyle"? Works for travellers etc. Perhaps Mrs Bliar might take the case, although my means only run to pro bono. Seriously though, given the nonsense that the politically corect types put through under human rights, we are not going to be any more spurious.

    The civilian population have no rights, only privileges that can be revoked at any time by the govt in power at the time or to put it another way...

    We the sensible people of the United Kingdom, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid any more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behaviour and secure the blessings of debt free liberty to ourselves and our great great-great grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional, and other liberal bedwetters.
    We hold these truths to be self-evident: That a whole lot of people were confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim that they require a Bill of Non Rights.
    · ARTICLE I -- You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV or any form of wealth.
    More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.
    · ARTICLE II -- You do not have the right to never be offended.
    This country is based on freedom, and that means the freedom for everyone, not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc., but the world is full of idiots and probably always will be.
    · ARTICLE III -- You do not have the right to be free from harm.
    If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful. Do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.
    · ARTICLE IV -- You do not have the right to free food and housing.
    The British are among the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generations of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.
    · ARTICLE V -- You do not have the right to free health care.
    That would be nice but, from the looks of public housing, we're just not interested in government run health care.
    · ARTICLE VI -- You do not have the right to physically harm other people.
    If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair or be hung by the neck until dead.
    · ARTICLE VII -- You do not have the right to the possessions of others.
    If you rob, cheat or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don't be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won't have the right to a big screen TV or a life of leisure.
    · ARTICLE VIII -- You don't have the right to demand that our children risk their lives in foreign wars to soothe your aching conscience.
    We hate oppressive governments and won't lift a finger to stop you from going to fight, if you'd like. However, we do not enjoy parenting the entire world and do not want to spend so much of our time battling each and every little tyrant with a military uniform and a funny hat.
    · ARTICLE IX -- You don't have the right to a job.
    All of us sure want all of you to have one, and will gladly help you in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.
    · ARTICLE X -- You do not have the right to happiness.
    Being British means that you have the right to pursue happiness -- which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an over abundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.

    Do you now get the message? we in the uk are f@c$ed
