The Daily Mail reported that the new chief judge of the European Court of Human Rights (Yes that one that requires votes for prisoners but no rights for homeschoolers!), Judge Dean Spielmann from Luxembourg, has threatened the UK that Britain must obey its decrees or leave the EU:
Britain was yesterday threatened with having to quit the European Union if it refuses to ‘kowtow’ to Strasbourg’s human rights judges.
The warning was delivered by the new head of the European Court of Human Rights, amid an increasing determination among Tory Cabinet ministers to leave its jurisdiction.
Judge Dean Spielmann, from Luxemburg, also insisted that ministers had a duty to grant the vote to prisoners.
