The Human Rights Act, the EU's great panacea.
The ECHR is not an EU institution. Anyone who voted for Brexit because they don't like the impact of the ECHR is going to be disappointed.
A quote from Crosslands:
"What has been overlooked in many of the debates is the fact that whether we exit the EU or not, this will not affect the fact that the UK is bound by common law which implies many fundamental rights,and we also signed up to the European Convention on Human Rights ('ECHR') before the EU even existed. We are one of 47 nations (including Russia) to have signed up to the Council of Europe which is entirely independent of the EU and which administers the ECHR. We also have primary legislation in the UK called the Human Rights Act 1998 which specifically incorporates the ECHR
To be free of the interference of the ECtHR we would have to repeal/amend the Human Rights Act and remove ourselves from the Council of Europe and the ECHR and if we did, is it likely that many countries would want do business with us? After all, the barriers to Turkey being ushered into the EU have consistently been their Human Rights record, so if we publicly say we will not sign up to the Council of Europe and the ECHR what signal does this send?"http://www.crosslandsolicitors.com/site/crossland_news/brexit_eweida_achbita_ECJ_ECHR_html_2016
