The case for the Charter is not made out. At most, it may make a marginal difference when the ECHR is not for some reason applicable. When the Labour Government negotiated it, it said it would have no legal force in the UK. Of course it was being disingenuous. But there is a perfectly respectable view that the Charter is unnecessary after the UK's departure from the EU and that a single human rights regime (the ECHR) is desirable. It simply takes the position back to 2009. To read this gentleman you would think it was 1609.
