Guardian's error in law

Guardian's error in law

"A dispute over the future of the British commitment to the European convention on human rights has been settled by setting up a commission, but any British bill of rights will incorporate and build on all obligations under the ECHR and ensure that these rights continue to be enshrined in British law".

We have English law.

There is no such thing as British law!

Besides, what British commitment? As I understand it, the Tories and Eurosceptics are against the ECHR.

Finally, why isn't the Guardian attacking the Xenophobic "British bill of rights"? What next Foreigners/Aliens bill of rights?

Human rights are universal. If there is to be a bill of rights it does not need the word British before bill of rights.
