    I don't know who will pick up the tab as the story referenced doesn't say. The IAS receives part of its funding from the taxpayer and part from charitable donations so, to that extent, I suppose it can be assumed that a proportion of the IAS costs in this case will be taxpayer funded.

    Personally, though, I welcome the case as it should provide much needed guidance - and hopefully precedent - on the relationship between the European Convention on Human Rights and the extent to which traditional national cultures are able to be protected by derogations under the Human Rights Act 1998 and its equivalents in other countries.
