Who’s Afraid of the Human Rights Act?
Hailed as an Act to ‘bring rights home’, the UK Human Rights Act was passed in 1998 with cross-party support. It has come under attack from successive governments and the media, blamed for a wide variety of ills: from exploitation by convicted criminals to unbalancing the constitution. We explore why some critics deem it ‘insufficiently British’, ask what a proposed Conservative British Bill of Rights would look like, and consider what it would mean to lose the Human Rights Act altogether.
