Spurious rights

BBC: Tories to review Human Rights Act
A commission to review in detail the Human Rights Act is to be set up by the Tories, shadow home secretary David Davis has announced. The 1998 Act has given rise to "too many spurious rights" and fuelled a compensation culture which is "out of all sense of proportion", he said.

I must admit, when I heard David Davis going on about 'spurious rights' on the radio this evening, I thought he was talking about the Tory Party. It turns out he was talking about taking away some of our human rights.

Sounds like a real vote-winner to me, but unfortunately David Blunkett is way ahead of him.
