Abstract

Francesca Klug and Amy Ruth Williams explore the UK Bill of Rights debate. They argue that a UK Bill of Rights worthy of its name could not address the criticisms currently leveled at the Human Rights Act (HRA)by members of the Government and sections of the press. In particular, modifying the framework so that "unpopular groups" are unable to claim redress to the degree they can now, would mean taking the unprecedented step of withdrawing from the European Convention on Human Rights, leaving the UK isolated in Europe.
