The Telegraph live blog has comment from Ken Clarke at one of their fringe events with Peter Oborne. Here are some of his comments:
- Asked about May's speech on the Human Rights Act, Clarke says, ""Well, she was giving her opinion, and it's not my opinion, as it happens"
- Clarke says that you have to remember the human rights of the offender: "You're going to deport some Somali who's been here since he was 5 years old… what about the human rights of his wife and children, who are going to lose their father?"
- Clarke also describes May as being "upset" about certain parts of the Human Rights Act, not the whole thing itself
- Christopher Hope, Whitehall Editor, says Clarke's public rebuttal of May's speech is "astonishing."
