Art. 14: No Discrimination

All (Convention) rights and freedoms to be secured without discrimination on any ground such as sex, race, colour, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, association with a national minority, property, birth or other status.

This right operates via the other absolute and qualified rights.

It follows from the basic principle of equality before the law and since 1772 has been taken as applying to all on UK soil: ECHR jurisdiction.

For illustration here are the discrimination cases on this website, with the relevant rights.
