This is supposed to be a parody, but is beyond parody as it misses the point it aims for and highlights the flaws it seeks to deny…

The European Convention on Human Rights did nothing for the UK. As the video says, the UK did all of that for the original ECHR, we wrote it to spread English justice across the continent…

The UK did this just after the war and it all worked well for a time. But since that time, activist judges in the European Court of Human Rights have twisted, extended and perverted the convention to support their own political positions on ‘social democracy’ that have nothing to do with Human Rights, and as political positions should only be considered by politicians who we elect – not by unelected, unaccountable judges.

If the UK leaves the Convention, it will be replaced, it must be replaced, we can’t simply trust our government any more than we can trust the European Court of Human Rights…

The replacement will probably be very similar to the original convention the big issue is who will administer it who will pass judgement and make rulings?

I’d suggest an English jury should judge cases – so the power loops back to the people and isn’t taken away and moved ever further away from us…
