The PM of the UK said that the recent terror attacks in Manchester and London made her think that there is something totally wrong in the country’s anti-terrorism laws and her goal as a l;eader is to change it in order to protect the citizens for future. While serving as Home Secretary, Mrs May had set out controversial proposals to scrap the Human Rights Act and leave the European Court of Human Rights, claiming human rights laws had done “nothing” for British people. The deeply unpopular plans were shelved indefinitely in the wake of Brexit but now Mrs. May hints on their possible revival. She vowed: “We need to ensure our police and intelligence agencies have the powers they need… and if our human rights laws stop us from doing it, we’ll change the laws so we can do it.” The comments signal an apparent break from the Conservative Party manifesto issued only a few weeks ago.
