ABSTRACT
The article reports that top human rights barristers are warning that Great Britain's Conservative Party plans to review or repeal the Human Rights Act (HRA) could lead a Tory government into conflict with the judiciary. Conservative leader Michael Howard made the announcement on March 21, 2005. Although there is no constitutional or legislative impediment to a repeal of the HRA, Great Britain citizens would still have recourse to both Great Britain's highest courts and the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg if they felt their rights had been infringed.
