Lord Judge, the former Lord Chief Justice, says decisions should not be "exported" to the European Court of Human Rights



The Human Rights Act should be amended to make clear that Britain’s courts are not inferior to the European judges in Strasbourg, the former Lord Chief Justice has said.
Lord Judge, who stepped down as England and Wales’ most senior judge at the end of September, mounted a forceful defence of the British legal system and warned the European Court of Human Rights had “erroneously” begun to gain supremacy.
Deploying highly-charged language which would have been unthinkable during his 25 years on the bench, Lord Judge said decisions on controversial issues such as prisoner’s voting rights should not be “exported” to a “foreign court”.
“In my view, the Strasbourg court is not superior to our Supreme Court,” said Lord Judge.
“This is not a pro- or anti-European stance. It is a constitutional issue which has never had to be faced in our jurisdiction.”

Lord Judge is talking sense there.
