I spoke to Charon QC earlier today, for the seventh report of his Law Tour. Unsurprisingly we spoke about Abu Qatada, the big legal story of the week and something that’s been on my mind since his successful appeal yesterday to the Special Immigration Appeals Commission.
We discuss yesterday’s judgment of course, whether there’s any legitimate criticism of Theresa May, and what she can do now; and we discuss whether this case bolsters the arguments of those who’d like to denounce the European Convention on Human Rights – or whether it can be seen in quite a different light.
I hope you enjoy the podcast as much as I enjoyed speaking to Charon QC – you can listen in the player below. And do follow Charon’s tour reports – they’re going to get even more interesting as he gets out and among us all over the country.
