By amending legislation to prevent local government from incorporating the concerns of human rights campaigners into their pension and procurement policies the British government under Prime Minister David Cameron associates Britain with Netanyahu’s illegal settlement policy in the Occupied Territories that is in gross violation of the Geneva Conventions and has been condemned by both the EU and the UN

It also associates the British electorate with:

  • the world’s only undeclared nuclear weapon state
  • a state that ­ unlike the 28 members of the EU ­ refuses to be a party to the nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT)
  • a nuclear weapons state that ­ unlike the 28 members of the EU ­ is outside the inspection of the International Atomic Weapons Agency (IAEA)
  • a state that ­ unlike the 28 members of the EU ­ refuses to sign and ratify either the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) or the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC)
  • a state that ­ unlike the 28 members of the EU ­ operates a system of imprisonment of political prisoners without trial
  • a state that condones terrorist activity by its extremist settlers against Palestinian civilians
  • a state that is desperate to find an excuse to invade Iran so as to scupper the P5+1, international accord for peace
  • a state that is alleged to have committed serious war crimes when, according to the UN, its troops killed 2100 civilians in a reprisal attack against the population of Gaza in 2014
  • human rights violations by providing work for British arms exporters that contravenes international law.
  • a policy that runs counter to both international and European agreed treaties.
