Open thread: May on ECHR withdrawal

first_imgSo are we withdrawing from the Geneva Convention too or is it just ECHR protections that don’t apply to our military actions?— Max Hardy (@maxbarrister) October 4, 2016 The prime minister is today expected to announce plans to withdraw temporarily from parts of the European Convention on Human Rights before future military actions overseas. Theresa May will tell the Conservative party conference that this will stop the convention being used in ‘witch hunts’ against UK service personnel. Is this long overdue – or a dangerous precedent in a world where human rights are under assault? Please add your thoughts in the comments section below.In light of proposed #Brexit bill and #ECHR derogation, the UK constitution may now be so broken that it is no longer fit for serious study.— Dr. David Jenkins (@DrDavidJenkins) 4 October 2016‘British troops to be made exempt from European human rights laws during combat’ What a grubby, nasty nation we’ve become #ECHR #Brexit— Brendan 🇪🇺 (@Brendan_Surrey) 4 October 2016Is this the start of a change or a smokescreen, your thoughts? https://t.co/v9DOl61Noa #justiceformarineA @Number10press @Number10gov— justiceforBigAl (@justiceforBigAl) October 4, 2016last_img read more
