Gove is now minister with responsibility for drawing up a British Bill of Rights to replace the 1998 Human Rights Act. This new bill will dilute powers already in place via the European Human Rights Act.
Cameron has tasked Gove to have plans for the new bill in place ready for the Queen's speech scheduled for May 27. But the bill will face political opposition and is already condemned by human rights groups in Britain.
The bill will have to pass through the House of Commons and the House of Lords but bear in mind the Lords is now stuffed to the rafters with more Tory Lords and Ladies than ever before.
A week after the Tories won the General Election their priorities says it all.
As the UK is about to become one of the most restrictive nations in Europe watch this space.
