I'm terrified. Why? Chris Grayling has just made a rabble rousing speech at the Tory party conference, shredding the Human Rights Act, that perennial, lazy target for the Tory faithful and the tabloid press. As they would have you believe it, the Act protects prisoners, terrorists and paedophiles. But, yet again in the short career of Mr Grayling, he's distorting the reality of a law for cheap political gain. He'd have you believe that it's a product of the evil EU which subverts our sovereignty with left-leaning liberalism.
via Comment: Human rights law protects us against ministers like Grayling.
