David Cameron has promised to scrap the Human Rights Act. What will replace it? David Mead writes that it seems highly unlikely that the Tories will tamper with the substance of the ECHR within any domestic Bill. The focus might well be on a re-adjustment of the relationship between British judges and those in Strasbourg, with the difficulty lying in how to do so. And who is a Bill of Rights for? It won’t be for the UK, considering that the ECHR is written in to the Good Friday Agreement, and any planned changes will not affect Scotland as the HRA is part of the devolution package.
