The European Convention on Human Rights
The Governments signatory hereto, being Members of the Council of Europe,
Considering the Universal Declaration of Human Rights proclaimed by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 10 December 1948;
Considering that this Declaration aims at securing the universal and effective recognition and observance of the Rights therein declared;
Considering that the aim of the Council of Europe is the achievement of greater unity between its Members and that one of the methods by which the aim is to be pursued is the maintenance and further realization of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms;
Reaffirming their profound belief in those Fundamental Freedoms which are the foundation of justice and peace in the world and are best maintained on the one hand by an effective political democracy and on the other by a common understanding and observance of the Human Rights upon which they depend;
Being resolved, as the Governments of European countries which are like-minded and have a common heritage of political traditions, ideals, freedom and the rule of law to take the first steps for the collective enforcement of certain of the Rights stated in the Universal Declaration.
What you've quoted changes nothing - I'm trying to be polite in this but I must repeat that in England we observe only Parliamentary supremacy - rulings of the ECHR in Strasbourg are neither binding on Parliament nor on the courts of England.
Yeah, well I don't know... what I do know is that you lot are going to be disappointed in your expectations about the future of marriage because, to put it politely, the arguments you put forward for such radical changes are shallow and unconvincing.
