A Human Rights Choice

Here is just a little compare and contrast for you.

The first is from the Scottish Government document about setting up a new constitution in an inclusive process after a Yes vote in a referendum…

“…a constitutional convention should consider how to further embed equality and human rights within the constitution and the extent to which the people of Scotland should have constitutional rights in relation to issues such as welfare, pensions, health care and education.”

The second from a recent speech by Theresa May

“…And we need to stop human rights legislation interfering with our ability to fight crime and control immigration. That’s why, as our last manifesto promised, the next Conservative government will scrap the Human Rights Act, and it’s why we should also consider very carefully our relationship with the European Court of Human Rights and the Convention it enforces.”

I can’t decide for you but I know which one seems more appealing to me.472
