>The only people who have ever suggested that might be on the table are the remainers, as part of Project Fear. I've seen leavers suggest leaving the ECJ, not the same thing at all.

Mrs May was for it (http://www.theweek.co.uk/72028/european-convention-of-human-rights-the-pros-and-cons-of-leaving), and it is something they keep trying to put in the manifesto - although you could argue that would make our position safe as they haven't done anything in the last manifesto.

Chris Grayling was definitely in favour and wrote a paper about it before the 2015 election, as was Lord Foulkes (two former justice ministers and at least one home secretary) and the majority of the ERG, including famous Remainer Rees-Mogg.
