Submission + - UK Conservatives Promise to Scrap Human Rights Act (theguardian.com)

vinehair writes: At the Conservative Party Conference, UK Home Secretary Theresa May stated that the party is prepared to withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR.) "The next Conservative manifesto will promise to scrap the Human Rights Act. It's why Chris Grayling is leading a review of our relationship with the European court [of human rights]," she told the party's conference. "And it's why the Conservative position is clear – if leaving the European convention is what it takes to fix our human rights laws, that is what we should do," she said to applause.

This shortly follows a YouGov poll that claimed that up to 70% of UK voters want immigration stopped completely. What kind of picture does this paint for the future of the United Kingdom on the international stage?
