Catherine Bearder Libdem Disregards Human Rights

The lead candidate for the Liberal Democrats in the EU elections on May 22nd 2014 is Catherine Bearder, now an MEP, who has a terrible record on Human Rights.
She approves of Human Rights being disregarded and trampled on. She has put this in writing.
I wrote to Catherine Bearder asking her whether she approved of the Law Society banning a conference of Christian lawyers scheduled to be held there on May 23rd 2012.  These lawyers were paid-up members of the Law Society which means that they were entitled to use the premises so long as they booked it through the official procedures. This they had done. Then at the last minute they were kicked out. 
After the usual two-week delay, Ms Bearder replied that she did not wish to challenge the Law Society's decision.
She thought they had a "right" to do what they liked on their own premises. 
Oh have they indeed? What about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 18, the right to freedom of religion, and Article 19, the right to freedom of expression, and Article 20, the right to peaceful assembly?
What would be the reaction if any public body banned a Muslim conference? We would have riots and blood on the streets. All the liberal-leftie media would bend over backwards to make it clear that they were not anti-islamic. So why is it OK to ban Christians?
Bearder's letter was short, impatient and did not even stop to consider the human rights issues I had raised. She has no interest in representing you, the voters.

Four other MEPs, James Elles, Sharon Bowles, Keith Taylor and Peter Skinner have not bothered to reply. We can take it they are also anti-Christian and opposed to freedom of speech. This is not just a matter for concern to Christians, or to religious people. It is our fundamental human rights being eroded.
