The Scottish Independence Podcast 38 – Human Rights

shamiFor the 38th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast, I am reproducing a talk given by Shami Chakrabarti from the campaign group Liberty. This talk is reproduced with the kind permission of Liverpool John Moores University. It comes from their Roscoe lecture series.

The reason I am reproducing this talk is that with Cameron himself suggesting the UK may have to withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights a month or so ago, these become important issues not just globally, but also in the upcoming referendum.

Chakrabarti was once, for the hideous crime of sticking up for human rights, described as “The most dangerous woman in Britain” by The Sun. In this talk she explains the importance of the rights we have, and what might begin to unravel if they were removed.

Hope you enjoy…
