Essentially a simplified subset of regular English, the concept was first presented in. S 1930 book Basic English: A General Introduction with Rules and Grammar. Wells adopted the idea of Basic English in his 1933 science fiction work The Shape of Things to Come. John Sankey, 1st Viscount Sankey. Was a British lawyer, judge, Labour politician and Lord High Chancellor of Great Britain, famous for many of his judgments in the House of Lords. He gave his name to the Sankey Declaration of the Rights of Man (1940), the product of the Sankey Committee, which was set up in 1940 by the Daily Herald and the National Peace Council, and which Sankey chaired. The most active member of the committee was H. Wells, who prepared the draft that the Declaration was based on. It identified eleven fundamental human rights: right to life, protection of minors, duty to the community, right to knowledge, freedom of thought and worship, right to work, right to personal property, freedom of movement, personal liberty, freedom from violence, and right of law making. The Sankey Declaration was widely publicized by its sponsors at the time, but has since been largely forgotten, having been overtaken by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948.
