When asked if a temporary withdrawal from the European Convention on Human Rights was a possibility, to help facilitate the deportation of Abu Qatada, Mrs May said:
We should have all options - including leaving the convention altogether - on the table. The Prime Minister is looking at all the options. That is the only sensible thing to do.
The Home Secretary pinned her hopes for ousting Abu Qatada from Britain on a fresh deal with the Jordanians.
A Tory MP and former government lawyer give their view on the UK potentially withdrawing from the ECHR to aid Abu Qatada's deportation.
The Government has been refused permission to take its fight to remove preacher Abu Qatada from the UK to the Supreme Court.
