We already have laws in the UK to protect human rights. If we leave the EHCR, it's not like murder suddenly becomes legal.
What rights do we not already have under UK law that we should have?
AHhh ok now I get your misunderstanding. Murder is a crime under law and is nothing to do with human rights. Think about it like this. Laws cover what you can't do, rights cover what you can do.
For example, everyone in the UK, on being tried for a crime has a right to a fair trial and a right to be tried by his peers if they choose. Rights tend to come from, not laws but conventions, constitutions, or some sort of charter. As I mentioned in my previous post, most of our rights in the UK, once you remove the ECHR come from the Magna Carta, I'm sure you'll agree that things have moved on since then.
