Justice Secretary Chris Grayling has said he profoundly disagrees with a recent ruling by the European Court of Human Rights that 'whole life' sentences are "inhuman".
I have repeatedly made clear how profoundly I disagree with the recent ruling by the European Court.
Our judges should be able to tell those who commit the most heinous crimes imaginable that they may never be released.
To be told this breaches human rights is absurd — and an insult to those who wrote the original Human Rights Convention. What about the rights of the victims and their families?
I continue to strongly believe that whole life tariffs are appropriate for the worst murder cases. This is why I want wholesale reforms to our human rights laws.
