Petition Create further protection for the UK's Human Rights Act of 1998

The UK's legal human rights are formed from the Human Rights Act of 1998, and was protected informally by our membership of the EU. It is now possible future governments will adapt or remove UK citizens human rights easily if no protection through a 2/3rds parliamentary majority is created.

Do not allow your rights as individuals in the UK to be lost because the UK has left the EU.
