Human Rights - Churchills legacy

"Conservative parliamentary candidate Jesse Norman and political columnist Peter Oborne today launch ‘Churchill’s Legacy: The Conservative case for the Human Rights Act’. The short book, published by Liberty in support of the Common Values campaign, recommends that the Conservatives reclaim their historic position as a party of British liberty and the rule of law by dropping their opposition to the Human Rights Act."

Liberty  issued a press release yesterday announcing this new book -which also includes a synopsys of the arguments contained in the book.  Interesting to see the Conservatives moving towards a more humanitarian position.  The site also has a link to the book in .pdf .  I could link to it but then you'd never go look at what else you can find at Liberty now would you..?
