The ECHR is a joke anyway, it's because of that people like Anjem Choudary roam free on our streets, and why the justice system had such a hard time keeping Abu Hamza al-Masri locked away.
Other criminals can abuse the ECHR rulebook to their own advantage too.
Sure, it may keep us safe in some respects, but at what cost?

In the end, Russia will do what it will do. I certainly don't like it and find their actions shady, but then it's par the course for what is usually done.

Isn't choudary remanded in custody so not exactly free to roam our streets? What is the connection between him and the ECHR?
Same question what human rights are you willing to give up?
He has been detained between four and five times at British airports under terror laws and his home searched by Special Branch officers and ‘items’ seized. He frequently travels to Yemen, a known hotspot for al-Qaeda linked terrorist groups.
But incredibly, the Home Office cannot deport the imam, who preaches at a large mosque in the north of England, because it would be a breach of his human rights to do so.
A study, conducted by an anti-extremist think tank, the Henry Jackson Society, has shown that 28 foreign-born convicted terrorists and suspects have used the Human Rights Act to prevent their expulsion from the UK because they come from countries such as Yemen, Algeria and Egypt where they would face torture or mistreatment on their return.
A TERROR suspect who was banned from Britain and deemed a "serious threat" to security has been allowed back in – because of the Human Rights Act.
Exactly. Every country will do what is necessary when it boils down to their own rights set out in their own constitution.
