UK Liberty

Wrong

The Guardian:

It is the first time the Government has indicated it may “derogate” from the international treaty [ECHR] and put suspects under conditions that breach human rights.

According to the JCHR, the UK is the only country out of 45 in the Council of Europe to have derogated from Article 5; the only country in the world to have derogated from Article 9 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights; and, except for the USA, the only country to have resorted to the indefinite detention of suspected terrorists.
