Soldiers' rights act.

Human rights laws can be applied to British troops even in combat, a High Court judge has ruled.

The landmark judgement came in a test case relating to the death of Scottish soldier Pte Jason Smith in Iraq.

Mr Justice Collins said sending soldiers into action without proper kit could breach human rights. Ministers are appealing against the ruling.

Will the same tabloids that denounce the Human Rights Act as a charter for criminals and terrorists change their minds now that their heroes are being protected too, as they always should have been?

Is the Pope a protestant?
