Simon Nightingale on radio: freethinking in Bangladesh, and human rights

Simon_NightingaleSimon gave another  Pause for Thought on Radio Shropshire on Sunday morning. You can listen to it by going to http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02ypngj#play between 1:20:00 to 1:25:00 on the timeline. The programme is available for 7 days.

The present UK government is planning to withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights, mainly because they don’t want to give human rights to those they don’t like. For example, David Cameron is reported as saying that the thought of giving prisoners the vote (as required by ECHR) made him feel physically sick.
