Cameron won't rule out European Human Rights exit

The Prime Minister has signalled that Britain could leave the European Convention on Human Rights after he insisted he ruled nothing out in achieving the Government's aims.

Mr Cameron told MPs gathered in the Commons for Prime Minister's Questions he wanted British judges making decisions in British courts, with the UK Parliament accountable to the people of the country.

He said: "We're very clear in what we want, which is British judges making decisions in British courts and also the British Parliament being accountable to the British people.

"Our plans set out in our manifesto do not involve us leaving the European Convention on Human Rights.

"But let's be absolutely clear: if we can't achieve what we need I rule out absolutely nothing in getting that done."

PMQs set for 'final' Cameron v Miliband showdown

Prime Minister David Cameron and Labour leader Ed Miliband will go head-to-head in the House of Commons today for what is likely to be the final time.

Today's Prime Minister's Questions will be the last session before Parliament is dissolved on Monday ahead of the general election - and with both party leaders facing possible leadership questions if they fail to secure majorities, it could be the last time the pair face one another.

ITV News deputy political editor Chris Ship tweeted:

It comes just days after Mr Cameron told children's newspaper First News that PMQs was his least favourite part of leading the country.

I don't really enjoy Prime Minister's Questions. It's not a very good example to schoolchildren around the country because it's not a great reflection of what parliament does.
