This all seems very strange to me I must say:
In a blow to Des Browne, the Defence Secretary, a senior judge said troops in combat zones have a "right to life" at all times, even while under fire on the battlefield.
Makes you rather wonder whether the politicians actually read and understood the Human Rights Act 1998 before they waved it into law.
This I rather like though:
But rejecting Mr Browne\’s bid, the judge said: "A finding that there was a failure to act in a particular way does not appear to determine a question of civil liability. I do not think that findings of fact, however robustly stated, can be forbidden."
Rock on Judge! A finding of fact being simply another word fo "truth".
