Tomorrow is Another Country: What is Wrong with the UKís Asylum Policy?
By Myles Harris. The key to the failure of our immigration policy is Britainís adherence to the European Convention on Human Rights. Created in the 1950s to offer refuge to the victims of Soviet persecution, it has been developed to offer asylum to anybody in the world. In October 2000 the Labour government passed the Human Rights Act, which incorporates the provisions of the Convention into British law. As a result, any refugees who set foot in Britain must be admitted to have their claims heard. Most manage to stay even if their claims are refused. If people cannot enjoy human rights in their own countries, they are entitled to enjoy them here. Softcover, 123 pp. Includes postage and packaging.
