What Will The Supremes Do..?

The high court found last year that requiring landlords to check the immigration status of prospective tenants was unlawful and racially discriminatory because it caused landlords to discriminate against British citizens from minority ethnic backgrounds and against foreign nationals who had a legal right to rent.

The court ruled that the policy had a “disproportionately discriminatory effect”, as well as “little to no effect” on controlling immigration, and was incompatible with the right to freedom from discrimination, enshrined in European human rights legislation.

But for once, the Home Office didn’t simply roll over. And now, they’ve won.

But the Home Office appealed against that ruling, and the appeal court found that while some landlords did discriminate against would-be tenants who had no British passport, the scheme was nevertheless “justified” as a “proportionate means of achieving its legitimate objective”.

It’s not the end, though. As always, the enemies of Britain want another go:

The JCWI said it was preparing to appeal against the ruling at the supreme court and renewed calls for the scheme to be repealed.

I’m not hopeful they’ll defend the sovereign rights of Britons over foreigners, are you?

    No I’m not. Is Brenda the Black Widow spider still there or has she been replaced by another globalist?

    I think we need a revolution. Unfortunately, experience seems to show revolutions result in things worsening rather than getting better. The American Revolution, perhaps, is the exception?

    “What Will The Supremes Do..?”

    Probably issue a ruling saying “Stop! In the name of love”.

      The Supreme(‘s) Court would probably say ‘Stop in the name of virtue signalling’.
