Jeremy Corbyn and Diane Abbott's "shipwreck" law to protect victims of child abuse due to fear could be used a new data-sharing treaty with the United States to condemn a criminal to death
- The team for internal labor affairs has filed a "demolition amendment" to a new law
- The bill would help allow the UK to order US technology giants like Google and Facebook to deliver the data needed to condemn pedophiles within a few days
- The work is asking Britain to write with special assurances that no data that we can theoretically share in return could ever be used to convict a criminal to death

Jeremy Corbyn and Diane Abbott were accused last night of putting their "mad left" policy in front of pedophilia victims.
The attack came after the Labor's home affairs team, led by Mrs. Abbott, issued a "scrapping amendment" on a new law on child protection, which should be discussed on Wednesday by MEPs .
The Crime Law (Overseas Production Orders) would have paved the way for the United Kingdom to directly order American tech giants such as Google and Facebook to deliver the data needed to condemn British pedophiles in a few days.

But it requires a new international treaty with the United States as over 90 percent of online child abuse in the UK is linked to software firms based in the United States.
Currently, UK law enforcement officials have to request the US Department of Justice to obtain data in America, but this process can take two years – allowing pedophiles to continue their abuse.
However, Labor is demanding that Britain write in special insurances to the new agreement that no data we can theoretically share in return could ever be used to convict a criminal to death. Washington warned the Interior Ministry that any attempt to "stick the strings" to the treaty would kill it.
Last night, Security Minister Ben Wallace criticized the Labor leadership for "holding the data-sharing treaty hostage".
He said: "The Islington clique at the top of the Labor Party is putting politics before incarcerating pedophiles into a nightmare vision of how it would be if they ever came to power.
"The sinister left of the London Labor mafia is trying to redeem our children's security with an amendment that would destroy any possibility of a treaty with our American allies."
Mr. Wallace called on the moderate backbenchers to rebel against the leadership, saying: "Labor Labor MPs have the opportunity to show Jeremy Corbyn and Diane Abbott that they will not play theoretical parliamentary games with the lives of vulnerable victims."
In view of the debate on the commons, Mr. Wallace gave a chilling warning that "every day this bill is late is another day when another child could be abused".

Explaining the urgent need for the new law, he said: "At the moment this process takes months and years, but this bill and a new treaty with the United States, which we have drafted, will reduce it to days and weeks" .
The Mail on Sunday understands that the United States has warned ministers that the proposal for an agreement between the United Kingdom and the United States could fall into the Republican-controlled Senate if there were any attempts to "bind" the American courts.
The Ministry of Interior has warned that new measures are urgently needed to help pedophiles currently operating in Britain.
An operation that began in 2017 involved a male suspect in the United Kingdom using Facebook, Instagram, Gmail and Snapchat and pretending to be a teenage girl to extract indecent images from underage boys.
Data collected by the National Crime Agency helped identify over 150 potential child victims. However, the agency is still awaiting authorization from a US judge to release further data.
A Labor spokesman said: "Neither the collective efforts of a government that collapses to distort President Trump nor the personal ambitions of unspoken ministers should make the United Kingdom complicit in executions, both in Saudi Arabia and in Texas.
"We support the rapid exchange of information to ensure criminals bring to justice where there are guarantees that the death penalty will not be applied".
