SEVEN new human rights cases are being lodged against Britain every day, costing taxpayers a massive £2billion a year.
The number of claims has doubled in 12 months, with terrorists, crooks and illegal immigrants exploiting the barmy laws.
Critics said the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg was giving criminals a “field day”.
Cases against Britain rocketed from 1,690 in 2009 to 3,172 last year, with 50 new cases a week.
Furious Tory MP Dominic Raab said: “We’ve seen a surge in litigation as Strasbourg rewrites UK law – a field day for criminals avoiding deportation or suing the prison service.”
The Human Rights Act has come under fire for shielding criminals such as failed Iraqi asylum seeker Aso Mohammed Ibrahim.
