People like Judge Dean Spielmann of the un-elected ECHR are the reason I have turned away from the idea of the EU. If I was a conspiracy theorist, I would have doubts of his loyalty to the EU. I would think he was a UKIP fifth columnist. The people who champion the EU must be wincing a little and thinking this man just put the ball in his own net. It's like telling a naughty child, that is misbehaving, to stop and be good and if the bad child continues being naughty, you'll give them lots of sweets and toys.
Obey the ECHR or be thrown out of the EU he warns. If this is all the UK need do, lets get on with it now. Sling us out. Bring it on. Nigel Farage, did you hear this guy? Is he one of yours? You should recruit him to shoot his mouth off more.
I can see this man being knighted when the UK leaves the EU. Sir Dean Spielmann for invaluable services to British sovereignty.
