Given that our administrators will be so busy now for the next five years or so, amending our laws to reflect independence, will we find time to leave the ECHR?

I am very clear that we should not, but in all the excitement I suspect it will come as a surprise to many that Brexit says nothing at all about human rights law.

it wasn't a European Union convention on human rights though, was it? Are they not independent?

That's a separate cunning plan some Tories have.

One issue with leaving the ECHR was that EU law required us to keep it, though it wasn't directly EU law. That obstacle looks likely to be removed. More of a problem is that is is deeply woven into the devolution settlements and the Northern Irish peace agreement. I think the Government is likely to be too busy with other things.
