While we rightly celebrate today, all is not rosy. Forces close to home are intent on weakening people's rights here, and undermining our standing abroad. The Tories are threatening to walk away from the ECHR and rip up our Human Rights Act, replacing it with a weaker Bill of Rights... Walking away from the ECHR would mean closing ourselves off to the world. This reverses centuries of history and is so very un-British. Our moral authority to press other countries on their human rights record - a cornerstone of our foreign policy - would be chopped off at the knees.
