And hence lies the big problem with the HRA.
Metropolitan Police figures show only one in 100 foreign nationals arrested are removed from Britain.Isn't it a joy to know that we arrests them, try them, imprison them and yet they are allowed to stay for various spurious reasons due to the UK's legal systems interpretation of the HRA, which is apparently far, far different to that of judges anywhere else. The main reason used to stay is of course the odious 'right to a family life' despite the case that a lot of the time, the family are estranged and in a few cases the offender is/was a child molester or rapist and their rights trumped those of societies for remaining safe.
Senior officers have raised concerns over the sheer number of foreign offenders.
Around 70,000 people arrested in London a year are from overseas – half from outside the European Union.
But Scotland Yard said a mere one per cent ended up being deported.
In a sensible world, any foreign national who commits a crime would find themselves kicked out after serving their sentence and even charged with the bill for doing so, but sadly the bleeding heart liberals and hard of thinking leftards who came up with the HRA do not usually have to live with the mess they created and so they get the right to remain.
No wonder the first cry in a lot of revolutions is 'kill the lawyers'
