It was Britain's wartime leader Sir Winston Churchill who first publicly suggested the creation of "a Council of Europe" in a BBC radio broadcast on 21 March 1943

The Council of Europe was founded on 5 May 1949 by the Treaty of London.

We are one of the founding members.
This is NOT the EU.

The Council of Europe is an official United Nations Observer.

It looks after the The European Court and the Convention of Human Rights

It often warns against states like Russia and Turkey interfering with and limiting the press

Unless they want to leave the Council.

And destroy all limits on OUR rights.
