Rules for undercover cops, UK edition

The European convention on human rights is not an EU thing, so brexit doesn’t mean dumping it automatically.

Our government does want out of echr because it says we have a right to privacy of communications, meaning blanket surveillance is illegal, and it says torture is bad, so we can’t send nasty people back home if home is a nasty state that might torture them

Also, bear in mind whose idea the convention was: https://youtu.be/ptfmAY6M6aA

Never spoke of the ECHR. In fact there are several other treaties, many of them related to the EU, protecting human/civil rights of citizens of EU member states. The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union is one example (guess who got an opt-out).

May apparently doesn’t want out of the ECHR, now she wants to be PM (so, a complete 180 from two months ago).
