I would prefer a compromise whereby the ECHR can make a strong recommendation on a case but the UK Supreme Court should decide whether to enforce it. I prefer Parliament pass laws rather than deciding cases. There have been cases like this, on whole life tariffs etc.
I thought the (very poorly thought out, UKIP fighting, popularist) proposal was to allow the UK courts to have the final say on a given matter, rather than for parliament to decide (Home Secretary decisions not withstanding)?
It may be a "Populist Vote Catcher" but that does not necessarily mean that it is wrong. I suspect that a large number of people in this country, maybe a majority, are unhappy about some of the decisions made by ECHR.
We are a Democratic Country and we should have the right to control our own laws and if we think that any current Government is passing the wrong laws we should vote them out.
I feel that our Supreme Court should be exactly that, we may not always agree with their decisions, but the SP is ours.
