    Default Theresa May to fight 2020 election on plans to take Britain out of EC Human Rights

    "Theresa May will put plans to pull out of the European Court of Human Rights at the heart of her campaign for the 2020 general election campaign, after ministers conceded that reform plans have been delayed by Brexit.

    The Prime Minister is understood to be backing plans to “lift and shift” human rights enshrined in the European Convention and write them into UK law.

    Mrs May’s plans go further than those drawn up by her predecessor David Cameron because they will give the Supreme Court the final say over how the rights are applied."

    So that means Brexit won't happen until after 2020 and only if she gets elected...

    The "Theresa May to fight 2020 election" bit begs a rather obvious question

    On a more serious note, the Good Friday Agreement requires the European Convention on Human Rights to be directly enforceable in Northern Ireland. So unless she wants to add renegotiation of the Irish Question to the already extremely long list of things she has to renegotiate, she might have to rethink this one. Well, think this one - I doubt much actual thought went into it in the first place.

    The only thing they know for sure now is that Brexit means Brexit.

    They are still trying to figure out what it actually is ...

    Why not. Her husband is making a fortune selling illegal cluster bombs to Saudi Arabia and used to kill and maim thousands of people

    Full Brexit. The ECHR is not an EU thing. It is a Council of Europe thing. Even Russia is a member of that.

    I liked this bit:

    [Jeremy Wright, the Attorney General] told MPs: “Although we have no quarrel with the content of the European Convention on Human Rights, it is the way in which that document is applied that gives us difficulty.
    Having the law applied to you can be difficult.
