British Bill of Rights

The introduction of a British Bill of Rights will probably not be made until after the General Election in 2020 so says the Telegraph.

Leaving the EU has no direct connection with Human Rights

No it doesn't, but the brexiters sure fooled folk into believing ECHR was an EU institution and another reason to leave.

No. I cannot say that there was no such implication at all, but there was no such claim or association that I saw.

The article suggests not that such a bill will merely be delayed, but rather that it will not happen at all. See how easy it is for people to acquire the wrong end of the stick whatever the words actually say?

It was certainly high on the list of reasons why some people voted to leave.

Can you substantiate that claim?

If you examine the words used, it is bound to be correct.

Reasonably certain anyway. How few does it need to be before it doesn't count as "some"?
