nothing to do with higher moral ground.

The higher moral ground would be to become party to OPCAT, however belatedly, and, failing that, to act as though we were Parties, even though we are not obligated so to do.


"The MEPs said internal investigations into Manning's treatment in custody, which included solitary confinement for up to 23 hours a day, inspections by officers every five minutes from 5am onwards and removal of his clothes, had been marred by "clear conflicts of interest".


Pretending that any of this has anything to do with the higher moral ground is downright laughable.
