Scrapping the HRA and even withdrawing from the ECHR are then to be the red meat he can offer to his rebellious back-benchers if he cannot achieve the treaty changes or opt-outs from the EU fundamentals.

The problem with this neat package of political management is that sacrificing the HRA/ECHR opens up an international and legal quagmire.

A government policy paper published last October, only 8 pages long, followed a Coalition commission which over 2 years tried to reach agreement on what a British Bill of Rights might look like, but proved inconclusive.

    Let’s face it,Tories are and always have been…chancers. They make policy over dinner parties and it’s always flawed…But what do you expect from the public school set?…

    The first thing Hitler’s party did when they won was to ban civil rights.

    Revoking the human rights act and making striking very difficult for trade unions, is just too familiar.

    So why isn’t Labour shouting that fromt he rooftops?
