Human Rights Not Cheap

Recommended Posts

Hmm, a report commissioned by the Taxpayers' Alliance - not sure I would trust that.

If that is £42billion since signing the ECHR in 1950 - i.e. 60 years of the court (assuming the court was around when we signed), then it doesn't look all that bad.

Also, the European Court of Human Rights has nothing to do with the EU - they are totally separate. Most of the comments on the article about leaving the EU are therefore misguided.

Indeed. Daily Wail Euro-arithmetic. Think of a number and double it. Have a stiff whisky, swear at some Johnny Foreigners and double it again. That'll teach them, didn't have my brain shot out in two world wars so the bloody fairies could take over etc etc.

"According to a report" - What report, or did the other facts in it not fit with the DM agenda so they hid the source?

The biggest cost was apparently changing data systems so that people could have access to their files - hardly the courts fault that the rubbish systems couldn't cope with simple requests.

The second biggest about stopping torture. Bleeding hell, Daily Mail, you'd rather have 500000+ people potentially tortured than spend 2.4 billion. Jesus wept!

etc etc.
