It is a plan to do anything but protect human rights. Rather it is a plan - should there be a Conservative government with a sufficient majority to force this through Parliament - to enhance the power of the executive and to weaken protections given in law to citizens. The British citizen could end up with less human rights protection in domestic law than the citizen of (say) Germany. But wait ! It might even be that the English citizen will end up with less protection than those living under the devolved administrations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. That's because those administrations may well choose not to accept this policy on behalf of their citizens.
