Thread: We have been given the Home Office grounds of appeal in our case.

On June 5th the Home Office will argue that the birthright provisions of the Good Friday Agreement are not in domestic UK law and are therefore unable to be enforced. #WeAreIrishtoo #sorryladsimirish
The Home Office will argue that under the BNA 1981 I am a British citizen regardless of the Good Friday Agreement and that the UKG does not have to uphold it's obligations to an international agreement unless its been passed by Parliament & implemented into UK legislation.
They will argue that the courts do not have the power to force the government to uphold its commitments and obligations to the Good Friday Agreement or any international agreement.

We will argue that under the Belfast Good Friday Agreement the people of Northern Ireland have the explicit right to be accepted as Irish or British or both and that the Good Friday Agreement is constitutional in nature. #sorryladsimirish
We will argue that the government is expected to act in accordance with international agreements & treaties #GFA is an international agreement between two sovereign governments that the UKG must uphold.

We will argue that I am an Irish national only & have only ever been such.
Reluctantly adding our funding page here on the advice of people who know better than me. It's still a bit uncomfortable for us but the reality is this is our 3rd time up against the Home Office & we don't receive legal aid or financial assistance uk.gofundme.com/help-end-home-…
This letter from immigration minister Caroline Nokes backs up the position of the Home Office and states;

"Our view is that an international agreement such as the Belfast Good Friday Agreement cannot supersede domestic legislation"

How do you like them apples?!
The Home Office "The courts of the United Kingdom have no power to enforce treaty rights and obligations at the behest of a sovereign government or at the behest of a private individual"

The dept is acknowledging that the Courts are trying to force the govt to uphold the #GFA
