Magna Carta, the 1689 Bill of Rights, and jack Straw

There’s nothing like writing your place in history! Today Jack Staw spoke of his new British Bill of Rights which he claimed, would have an impact similar to that of Magna Carta and the 1689 Bill of Rights. Not bad for someone recently described by the British Ambassador to the US as an intellectual pygmy! Straw’s new bill of rights and reponsibilities outlined yesterday could enshrine entitlement to welfar, eqaul treatment, housing, children’s well-being and the NHS (said Straw!)
