Nick Clegg And Human Rights

Soon after David Cameron became Prime Minister, his deputy, Nick Clegg has already demonstrated how close we could be to disaster if he was PM instead of Cameron.
Whilst the Conservatives have pledged to replace the Human Rights Act with a new Bill of Rights, Nick Clegg has spoken out on his support of the Act - specifically that a terror suspect and al-Qaeda operative should not be deported to Pakistan in case he would be "mistreated" by the authorities there. This is despite the fact that the Immigration Commission has stated that he "poses a serious threat to the national security of the United Kingdom and that... it is conducive to the public good that he should be deported."
As Telegraph writer Nile Gardiner says, "Clegg's left-wing instincts are completely wrong on this issue, and the PM [Cameron] must act before British lives are lost as a result of the Liberals' political posturing.
Yet again an example of how lefties seem to apply the idea of "human rights" more to terrorists than to the civilians they target as their victims. Twisted, but hardly a surprising attitude from Nick Clegg, who has ruled out military action against Iran, and wants Israel disarmed.
