Future event – responding to repeal and replace policy

The Conservative Manifesto 2010 proposed repeal of the HR Act and its replacement by a British Bill of Rights. This was in line with many untruths from the right of centre press e.g. p.30, Porn for murderers re Daily Telegraph, 17-08-2004, and was resisted by the minor coalition party, the LIbDems who like the Labour Party were broadly content with the HR Act and regarded replacement as a ploy for reduction of rights.

Consistent with this the Conservative Party human rights strategy document promised both conditional rights and reduction of rights standards.

The Conservative Manifesto 2015 repeated the scrap and replace commitment, and new Lord Chancellor Liz Truss M.P. committed to this again on the BBC Today Program 25-08-2016.
