Keir Starmer QC said critics of the legislation, which was brought in by Labour, were ill-informed and that it would be shameful if the Act was repealed. He also rejected claims that the law amounts to a criminals charter and insisted that the rights it granted were basic and fundamental. It would be to this countrys shame if we lost the clear and basic statement of our citizens human rights provided by the Human Rights Act on the basis of a fundamentally flawed analysis of their origin and relevance to our society, he added. His comments during a lecture last night to mark his first year as DPP were seen as a direct attack on the Conservative plan to replace the Human Rights Act with a British Bill of Rights, and prompted an angry riposte from opposition politicians. Shadow justice secretary Dominic Grieve said the issue was a matter for Parliament, not publicly appointed prosecutors, to decide and that the Tory proposals would create a better balance. He added: The Human Rights Act is not the only way to implement human rights in Britain. Justice Secretary Jack Straw said: What Mr Starmer has said underlines what Dominic Grieve knows but darent say: that Tory plans make no sense at all.

DidyouSpotify theToriesad? PTHE Conservatives have started targeting young voters on online music streaming service Spotify. Tory chairman Eric Pickles launched their campaign yesterday by interrupting music to send out a 45-second message in which he attacked Gordon Brown over his reckless spending. It is the first time a political party has advertised on a digital music service. PGAY hate crime in the capital has worsened in the past year, with Met figures showing an 18 per cent rise in offences. The jump saw the Met today accused of complacency over homophobic crime. There were 1,192 homophobic crimes in London in the year to last month -- nearly 200 more than in the previous 12 months. There were big rises in several boroughs, including Newham where offences increased by 190 per cent, Bexley, Southwark, Islington and Camden. The figures showed Westminster had the highest number, with 102 crimes. Ben Summerskill, chief executive of gay rights charity Stonewall, said: The Met has made progress in the past decade but is becoming complacent. Homophobic crime is often not treated as seriously as other offences. But Det Chief Insp Gerry Campbell said the Met was committed to tackling hate crime and urged more victims to report offences.
