Look press cheppies, thet looks like one of those human rights flying past over thyah! Jolly good sheow!!
The Mail’s unquestioning take is typical: “The legacy of Magna Carta has been ‘devalued’ by Labour’s Human Rights Act, David Cameron will say today as Britain commemorates its 800th anniversary … The Prime Minister will say the 13th century charter is the foundation document for human rights worldwide, but the meaning of these rights has become ‘distorted’ in recent years”. Really? Do go on.
His cheerleaders in the Fourth Estate aren’t fussed about that, with a Sun editorial, going wrong at the start by talking about “THE Magna Carta” (nobody at the Sun do Latin at school, then?), saying of the Human Rights Act (HRA) “This messy Act, alongside fudged rulings coming from Europe, stops Britain from making the best rules for Britons … IN Britain. It has to go … We don’t want cowardly criminals abusing the justice system”.
