UK Labor MEP: “In defence of the European Court of Human Rights”

Mary Honeyball at Public Service Europe: Finally, the organisation works in a realm where the notion of human rights varies wildly – depending on which country you are in. Some places do not have much of a tradition in upholding human rights, while the UK has one of the best records. With different standards, it makes the playing field somewhat uneven and difficult to monitor. And, I should imagine, it is a real problem within the ECHR. Every country can better its human rights standards, including the UK – which McDonald fails to see.
