Why is UK press ignoring fact that Tory plans to scrap Human Rights Act would endanger Good Friday Agreement?

Why has nobody in the UK mainstream press reported the fact that Tory plans to scrap the Human Rights Act would endanger the Good Friday Agreement and put at risk peace in Northern Ireland?

In May last year, the Irish government wrote a letter to the Justice Secretary Michael Gove to warn the Tories that scrapping the act may breach the Belfast Agreement terms and threaten hard-won peace and stability in the region.

Here’s the Irish Times from May 2015:

Government concern about UK plan to scrap Human Rights Act

But now the Tories have recently announced they are indeed to go ahead and scrap the act, the mainstream press in the UK hasn’t bothered to report this extremely important fact at all.

In case it harms the Tories chances at the ballot boxes tomorrow?
