Abstract

In his party conference speech, David Cameron promised to repeal the Human Rights Act but his main reason seems to be to avoid compliance with the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). The cases the PM cited in his speech as justification would have still been directly binding on the UK government even if the HRA had never been introduced. Today, David Cameron has signalled his wish to distance our country from the many achievements of the ECHR, writes Francesca Klug.
