Article 10, Freedom of Expression of the Human Rights Act 1998, which is a qualified right, states everyone has the right of freedom of expression. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers. This guarantees the right to pass information to other people and to receive information that other people want to give to you. It also guarantees the right to hold and express opinions and ideas.
It is unlawful for a public authority to act in a way which is incompatible with a "Convention Right". A person who claims that a public authority has acted (or proposes to act) in a way which is unlawful under the Human Rights Act 1998 may, if he or she is (or would be) a victim of the unlawful act either:
- bring proceedings in any appropriate court or tribunal against the authority under the Human Rights Act 1998; or
- rely on the Convention right concerned in any legal proceedings.
If you have a legitimate complaint about your local authority, evidence of corruption, or maladministration, then why not create a website to inform others - it is your right and you are protected by Article 10 and other Articles as to a peaceful protest.
