I'm wondering if this is just a newly established practice or it has been coded somewhere in the British law. I think what May is doing reflects once more her contempt towards human rights and women, which I'm sure are the most affected by this practice.

This is why May's contempt for human rights is worrying. When we start seeing them as burdens or unnecessary constraints, we may be crossing a very dangerous line indeed.
