What Has the European Convention Ever Done for Us?

The UK is in the midst of the "Brexit" debate over continued participation in the European Union.  Some British politicians, however, are calling on the UK to withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights, instead of, or in addition to, an EU exit.
