Bill of Rights?

Calls for a bill of rights are not going away. Trouble is, some want it to be on top of the Human Rights Act, and some want it in place of the HRA because it sounds more English and less European and criminal-coddling. Can these competing forces get their act together? Plus, the nail in the coffin, Jack Straw's in favour. Rights to a clean environment etc are going to be so hard to enforce in the courts that at the moment, I'm not that excited.
