Should the UK cut its ties with the European Court of Human Rights?
The government should cut its ties with the "expansionist" European Court of Human Rights, says a report by a right-leaning think tank. Is the ECHR fit for purpose?
The Policy Exchange report written by a former government adviser, Dr Michael Pinto-Duschinsky, says the UK has become "subservient" to the Strasbourg court.
Is the ECHR over-extending the concept of human rights? If the UK severed ties would it jeopardise its commitment to human rights? Would it be too complex to cut ties with court?
