    I HAVE COME TO LOOK MOURNFULLY AT YOU FOR MINUTES ON ENDShami Chakrabarti is a tiny woman, it s hard to tell from the tv screen but I d say about 8 or 9 inches tall, maybe 10, and she is intensely irritating, she s the Tinkerbell of Human Rights, always zooming and buzzing around and chucking the dust of moral obligation in y

    This book is written in the dry and unchallenging style used by many barristers it sets out an argument in favour of Human Rights and in opposition to recent British governments of all persuasions, with supporting evidence from well known cases that have been in our news over the past decade, and in unpretentious language that aims fo
