...I am not aware of any rights that are present or absent based on ethnicity in this country. So what rights is this "equal rights" campaigner trying to acquire?

TTT, at the moment she is not trying to obtain anything.She is 'hors de combat' in hospital which is what the article is about.

Yes but she is a campaigner I was wondering what for.
I can find nothing which says she campaigns for equal rights. She’s heavily involved in The Taking The Initiative Party which, among other things, want a Parliament which represents the make up of the UK population.
I’m afraid someone else will have to do the math to prove whether the current Parliament represents the racial make-up of the Uk. I really can’t be bothered.
No idea TTT. But then for some its just modern day anarchy.

ZM, the first line says: "A £20,000 reward has been offered for information into the shooting of black equal rights campaigner Sasha Johnson in south London."

ZM: "I’m afraid someone else will have to do the math to prove whether the current Parliament represents the racial make-up of the Uk. I really can’t be bothered. " - how is that relevant? Parliament legislates for the whole nation.
I know what the headline says, Tora, but there’s nothing to back it up that I can find.

You should make your point about Parliament to Ms Johnstone.
"I am not aware of any rights that are present or absent based on ethnicity in this country."

Are you serious????

yes, SP, what are these "rights" that are based on ethnicity, I'm all ears.
Like a Venus flytrap….

SNAP.

But again - I'm never sure whether you're playing Devil's Advocate in order to spark a conversation. If you are, ignore the link and chat away!
There seems to be a bit of confusion here. 'Rights' in this country apply across the board. How people are treated as individuals by others is another matter entirely. I know a lot of white ladies who aren't happy with the treatment they have received in maternity wards…. me for one… so perhaps the problem SP highlights isn't one of ethnicity at all but rather one of inconsideration and poor practice.
Ah hem!

SP, yes no doubt there are some ..ists but everyone has the same rights, so what would this young lady like to happen? Does she want more "rights" for non Caucasians or what?
Yes I think Naomi has it there @ 13:16.
Tory Backbenchers can no longer ignore that a LIAR is at the heart of Govt. Their world is falling apart for them .You can see it in their faces ,as they sullenly watch Boris Johnson Lie his way out of partygate. You can see it in the empty benches as they scurry out of the house. They know their jobs are on the line .
...Get rid of this Slime Minister Now.
Wrong thread but never mind.
// 'Rights' in this country apply across the board.//
noooooo
christ why do people write like this- mouth first and no mind

Children's rights do NO apply to adults ( presence of an adult) - vulnerable people have more rights - unemployed rather than employed
Immigrant adults no rights

chrissakes....

convicts cant vote
their right to a handgun licence is weaker than someone like Naomi.....
PP, You’ve already had one of your manic posts slating me removed today. Do yourself a favour and consult your doctor about your obsession. Now buzz off and leave me alone.
PP

You make a good point there.

Rights are not the same across the board. As an adult you have the right to smack your child. You do that do that to an adult and you face arrest.

As you point out, non convicts have a right to vote. Those in prison do not.

Parent have a right to maternity and paternity leave. Non-parents do not.

That may be an over-simplification, but it demonstrates that society is made up of a number of rights which pertain to some but not all.

The rights that need to be enshrined in common law are those of the Universal Declaration, which happily the UK is signed up to.
