Many recent bad court decisions cry out for revocation, but I wonder whether the current British government is even aware of the existence of this nuclear option, let alone courageous enough to use it.
It cannot be sufficiently stressed that in every human rights case there are human rights involved on both sides. A human rights case against the government is not just that: it is a case against the mass of law-abiding members of society. Theresa May and David Davis, please note!

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) has decided that it is not an act of religious discrimination for an employer to ban an employee from wearing an Islamic headscarf at work provided that the employer has a "neutral dress" policy in place.
The European Court of Justice has just ruled that religious symbols, such as hijabs, turbans and kippahs may be banned in the workplace. This is no less than an attack on people that practice a religion and are required to wear visible religious symbols; most of whom are ethnic minorities. It essentially legalises discrimination. And the right wing are celebrating.
I do not believe that Parliament has given this Bill the thought it deserved and is weaker for that lack of serious challenge. For these reasons, I would urge that people keep signing the petition, and continue building the number up. Parliament must be shown that there is still a great deal of concern.
Whereas in the last few years the US, UK and Japan central banks have been busy flushing the market with money, things have not developed quite the same way in the Eurozone, as the European Central Bank (ECB) is still struggling to define its own role.
