Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

When Cameron scores nationalist-reactionary points by firing bazooka rounds at the Human Rights Act, he doesn't tell the British people about the Council of Europe and the fact that Britain was a prime mover in its foundation, hosting the treaty signing in London.
No, he tells them it's a European Union imposition. And it works. Well done, European Union!

That's a neat way of shifting blame. No, Cameron is responsible.

Cameron is guilty. He does not strike me as particularly responsible.

Blair wanted to get rid of the Human Rights Act, too...
