Human Rights Act

The UK's Human Rights Act 1998 embeds the European Convention on Human Rights into UK law. Given that the Convention was largely written by British Conservative lawyers, in the aftermath of WWII, it's rather disappointing that the current Tories want to remove these human-rights protections.

Amnesty International is campaigning against this: http://keeptheact.uk
