The debate raging in Britain about the European Convention on Human Rights has been enriched by a new pundit on the block:
(CAVEAT: I do not buy, read or even look at “The Sun”, one of Britain’s worst tabloids. Thanks to the “Liberal Conspiracy” blog for the pointer. For those unfamiliar with the British press, “The Sun” has a scantily clad girl on its page 3 every day.)
There are a lot of things to be said about the ECHR, the British position to it, and Lord Carlile‘s review of anti-terrorism laws. But for now I only take issue with Hollie’s call “to tear up the human rights law books”. Neither do we expect anything sophisticated from a model, nor does Hollie’s biography suggest any exposure to the study of law (actually there is no education mentioned at all). – But why doesn’t Hollie pack her stuff (she doesn’t have too many clothes anyway, apparently), move to a country without human rights protection and then try to publish her photos there? Maybe this would change her mind about the value of European human rights.
