Newton Emerson is not impressed by the work of the Bill of Rights Forum. He believes that the working group reports show it will be a left wing wish list. One core problem in his criticism, the reports that have him working up a sweat are the old reports of the NIHRC process. The new working groups are not bound by their work in any way. A key reason there is another attempt is that the necessary political support couldn’t be garnered for the ‘left-wing wish list’ of the last process and any repetition will most likely deliver the same result, failure.
