    Lexology: The Human Rights Act 1998 has been in the news recently, with certain politicians and other commentators lamenting the fact that British courts are bound by European Court rulings. David Cameron appears to be leading the crusade. He plans to use the UK’s forthcoming chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe to spearhead a radical shake-up of the European Court of Human Rights.

    The Globe and Mail: In a three-hour discussion – the only such interview he has ever given – Judge Binnie provided penetrating glimpses into an institution known for its secretive nature, at a time when the bench is entering an unsettling period of transition with five judges slated to be replaced by 2015. Widely seen as a towering intellect who is arguably the country’s premier judge, he spoke with the easy candour of a man who has spent his career as a renowned advocate.
