The Human Rights Act is a UK law passed in 1998. It means that you can defend your rights in the UK courts and that public organisations (including the Government, the Police and local councils) must treat everyone equally, with fairness, dignity and respect.

The Human Rights Act protects all of us, young and old, rich and poor. The impact of terrorism and political violence
The challenge of radical Islamist terrorism in Britain has generated a fundamental debate over the question of religious and cultural toleration
The experiences of Northern Ireland
The complexity of cultural and social interaction in Britain leads to discussions of race, ethnicity and deprivation amongst minority groups.
A common perception in Britain today is that crime, especially violent crime and organised crime, is increasing and that many traditional values are now threatened by a crisis of social indiscipline especially amongst the young
The impact of globalisation has increasingly been seen as a major determinant in Britain’s changing world role and as a significant influence upon the direction of British foreign policy conservative 2010 ELECTIONS MAIN PARTIES DAVID CAMERON GORDAN BROWN labour party NICK CLEGG liberal democrats Color Party

The Labour Party won the second largest number of seats in the House of Commons at the 2010 general election, with 258 MPs.

The Liberal Democrats won the third largest number of seats at the 2010 general election, returning 57 MPs
