668. The DUP vs Human Rights?

November 09, 2021

Over the weekend reports emerged that Queens University Professor of Human Rights, Colin Harvey had seen his appointment to the Bill of Rights panel blocked by the DUP, in what can only describe as an act of political interference. So on Sunday evening we chatted with Professor Harvey to find out all about this and the ongoing intimidation he has been subjected to.
Colin tells us what he feels the speculation means, how he sees Human Rights as central to society and why it must be at the heart of any Shared Future on this island. We discuss the recent incidents and what stoking tensions says about the Stormont, and British govt in Westminster.
We also discuss protecting British Identity, improving how the Southern media and politicians cover the North and why despite this recent disappointment, Colin remains very optimistic about the Shared Future for all on this island.
