Justice Secretary Ken Clarke must go - Douglas Carswell

A Conservative MP called for Ken Clarke to go, claiming that the commission set up to look at the idea of a British Bill of Rights was "not really up to the job".

Douglas Carswell said: "If we want change, and I want change, we need to get ourselves a new justice secretary."

He was speaking after the resignation of Michael Pinto-Duschinsky from the commission, claiming Mr Clarke was ignoring his views.
