Well yes, if you ignore the fact that the European Council created the convention that established the European Court of Human Rights, then you would be absolutely right David.

Mr Junker says we have to do it. Surely his demand trumps all UK law on the matter.
My suggestions are not legal advice

The one in opposition to yours obviously.

But please illuminate me. In our current climate of doubt, a ray of certainty would be gratefully received.

You have asserted a fact. Please point to evidence of that fact. I am not going to attempt to prove a negative.

Absolutely. But would you mind swearing me in first?

From the The British Institute of Human Rights:
The European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (ECHR) 1950 was created by the Council of Europe (not to be confused with the European Union!).

They also produced this fantastically designed video which sets out the 15 main rights and freedoms in the Convention and its ProtocolL

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZzFaQyK-cM


The Council of Europe website states:

The European Court of Human Rights is an international court set up in 1959. It rules on individual or state applications alleging violations of the civil and political rights set out in the European Convention on Human Rights. Since 1998 it has sat as a full-time court and individuals can apply to it directly.

In almost fifty years the Court has delivered more than 10 000 judgments. These are binding on the countries concerned and have led governments to alter their legislation and administrative practice in a wide range of areas. The Court's case-law makes the Convention a powerful living instrument for meeting new challenges and consolidating the rule of law and democracy in Europe.

The Court is based in Strasbourg, in the Human Rights Building designed by the British architect Lord Richard Rogers in 1994 – a building whose image is known worldwide. From here, the Court monitors respect for the human rights of 800 million Europeans in the 47 Council of Europe member States that have ratified the Convention.
