Will dropping the ECHR ‘void’ the ‘Good Friday Agreement’?

So the Tories want to hack the European Convention on Human Rights out of the, erm, British Constitution? [Yep, but Cameron had to get rid of Dominic Grieve before he tried it – Ed]… Erm, well as Fergal Crehan pointed out on Twitter, there’s a little matter of an international treaty to ponder…

With yer unwritten constitution and all that, hacking such over arching law into the statute is a lot easy that hacking it out… Smart move to the right, or just the latest modern folly from Westminster, or as we might say, another “Heims on the Thames”
