Human rights act 1998
The Human Rights Act 1998 gives further legal effect in the UK to the basic rights and freedoms controlled in the European Convention on Human Rights. These rights not only impact matters of life and death, they also affect the rights you have in your everyday life: what you can say and do your beliefs, your right to a fair trial and other similar basic entitlements.
Most rights have limits to ensure that they do not unfairly damage other people's rights. However, certain rights – such as the right not to be tortured – can never be limited by a court or anybody else.
You have the responsibility to respect other people's rights, and they must respect yours. 
Your human rights are:
  * the right to life
  * freedom from torture and degrading treatment
  * freedom from slavery and forced labour
  * the right to liberty
  * the right to a fair trial
  * the right not to be punished for something that wasn't a crime when you did it
  * the right to respect for private and family life
  * freedom of thought, conscience and religion, and freedom to express your beliefs
  * freedom of expression
  * freedom of assembly and association
  * the right to marry and to start a family
  * the right not to be discriminated against in respect of these rights and freedoms
  * the right to peaceful enjoyment of your property
  * the right to an education
  * the right to participate in free elections
  * the right not to be subjected to the death penalty
