Caught With His Trousers Down

When people in the human rights business defend human rights legislation and the people who profit from that, they generally suggest that they are simply minimum standards that all civilised people should support or we risk descending into tyranny. In reality the sort of "human rights" that are upheld are things like this.

Whether banning a criminal from wearing his chav costume is a sensible restriction or not, it is hardly a breach of his human rights given that it is a limited restriction applied to someone who had been punished for misbehaviour.
