The Tories plans to scrap the Human Rights Act and renegotiate the terms of our human rights agreement with Strasbourg are out. And there are a few quibbles, worries, and in some cases, glaring errors or omissions.
The plans are so vague in part, and so unrealistic in other that it led Conservative MP and former Attorney General Dominic Grieve to say that proposals produced by Justice Secretary Chris Grayling contained a series of factual "howlers" and were not properly thought through.
Under the blueprint, a future Conservative government would effectively issue an ultimatum to Strasbourg that it must accept being merely an "advisory body" - or Britain would withdraw from the system altogether. The party would scrap the Human Rights Act introduced by Labour in 1998 to enshrine the European Convention on Human Rights in domestic law.
Instead there would be a Bill of Rights, which would include the principles from the convention - originally drawn up by British lawyers after the Second World War. But it would also make clear that the Supreme Court UK judges were not obliged to take European Court of Human Rights' rulings into account when coming to decisions.
Lawyers have been overtly critical of the new proposals.
The scale and manic incoherence of the Tory policy is a testament to how far from reality the human rights debate has travelled.— Adam Wagner (@AdamWagner1) October 3, 2014
Writing my post about the still-embargoed Tory human-rights proposals is like marking a very bad student essay. Hard to know where to begin— Mark Elliott (@DrMarkElliott) October 2, 2014
I call upon all legal professional representative bodies to disect and utterly expose Grayling's misconceived ECHR proposals.— John Cooper (@John_Cooper_QC) October 3, 2014
I can't find a single lawyer who thinks repeal of the HRA is a good idea. Clearly, neither could David Cameron, hence Chris Grayling.— Andrew Katz (@andrewjskatz) October 3, 2014
Next year the Tories want to celebrate Magna Carta, which you cannot enforce in court, and to repeal the Human Rights Act, which you can.— Jack of Kent (@JackofKent) October 3, 2014
Grayling rejected the criticisms and insisted the current Attorney General, Jeremy Wright, and said he believed the plans were "fine, viable and legal", denying it had been "rushed out" after the Prime Minister made a crowd-pleasing pledge at this week's party conference.
So what have lawyers been picking holes in?
