If you’re not familiar with some of the political battles taking place in the United Kingdom recently, you might want to read up on the European Convention on Human Rights.
The convention, signed in 1950 during the aftermath of World War II, was designed to give everyone in what would later become the European Union a chance live with dignity, and with many of the rights like fair trial, no slavery, and torture among other things.
Some leaders want Britain to leave the convention, and draft their own rules. So “Star Trek: The Next Generation” icon Patrick Stewart filmed a bit of a satirical piece with Adrian Scarborough and Sarah Solemani to do a modern version of a popular “Monty Python” sketch.
See Stewart shine as the incoming prime minister, sitting down with his cabinet for the first time, planning to pull his country out of the convention — with surprising results.
