    Looks like you cant pick and choose which Human Rights Policies you want to keep.

    Decent Tories (Grieve and Clarke) who actually know what they're talking about had warned the party about this little stunt.

    Haven't we learnt by now? No matter how many times a professional tells Gove* he is doing something stupid, he won't stop

    *though this is, without a doubt, more of cameron's doing.

    Britain should work on reforming the ECHR so that it has a more sane (i.e. victim-friendly) stance on criminal justice, but if the EU refuses to comply I don't see what's wrong with Britain leaving it and judging for itself what rights people should have. After all, Britain has an infinitely better track record than the rest of Europe combined when it comes to human rights.

    You know the ECHR act was written by Britain right? This isn't some horrible European thing that we've been dragged into against our will. It's British to the core. The ECHR isn't making us give prisoners the vote, either.

    Yet it is now mainly run by EU loving idiots which overall the much more sensible and legitimate British court systems. British Lawyers should decide British Law, final, if you don't like it go move to high unemployment France.

    1. The ECHR and the EU are separate institutions 2. What evidence do you have? 3. Even if it was true, so what? you think British courts don't like the UK? 4. The UK is part of the EU so if they love the EU that is loving the UK too.

    Oh well that settles it then.

    ECHR or not, we'll still have a better human rights treatment that some ECHR signatories, like Russia, or EU members like Poland.
