Okay, you remember how in my post yesterday entitled 'How do you solve a problem like Qatada?' I accused the home secretary, Theresa May of being an obstinate plutocrat who refuses to admit a mistake and will tear up our protection of fundamental rights to avoid doing so?
I was wrong. We can now include the Prime Minister in that description as well, as this article from the Guardian explains:
UK may withdraw from European rights convention over Abu Qatada | http://gu.com/p/3fc37
The short version is this: the government is seriously considering a temporary withdrawal from the European Convention of Human Rights.
We should all be very scared of this incredibly dangerous precedent.
Until next time,
