Grieve: Human Rights Act needs rational discussion

Dominic Grieve, attorney general, comments on the Human Rights Act:

"We have to think about the coalition – I keep on making this point to people. I'd like it to be a real Conservative government… we have to recognise we don't have a majority on a lot of things in the house of commons, we need to take our coalition partners along with us.

"That's not to say that the world is static. There are good arguments for moving forward. But in doing it… We need some rational discussion of the issues and not, I'm afraid, what we often see in certain pages of some newspapers, which is hysterical untruths being peddled over and over again and it's not very productive for any kind of rational argument.
