The media Report the Home Secretary as saying that the Human Rights Act must go. Some even speculate that the European Convention on Human Rights must go. If the Human Rights Act goes, but the UK remains a party to the European Convention on Human Rights, then it will still be possible to take a case to Strasbourg and argue it there. If the UK wishes to withdraw from the Convention this will be withdrawing from the Council of Europe and from the European Union, since being a party is a condition of membership of each.
