i have been set a tort essay and i am stuck where to start
During snowy weather in rural Yorkshire this winter Arthur’s car slid off a narrow road, tough the rear was left projecting over about half the road. Arthur left the car to seek assistance. His request was rejected by Ben at a farm half a mile away because Ben was watching the Big Match on television.
While Arthur was away, Claude drove up and got stuck in a ditch while trying to squeeze past Arthur’s car. The two cars were immobilized not far from a bend, around which was a steep hill. Claude, thinking that there might be a danger to oncoming traffic, went round the bend to place a warning triangle. At that moment, Don, driving a van too fast for the conditions, came down the hill, could not stop and struck Claude, killing him. Don had taken the van without the consent of the owner, Eddie, and was uninsured
Freda, Claude’s long-standing domestic partner, had remained in the car while Claude had gone out. A few minutes later Don told her there had been “a crash” and she fainted. When she awoke, the ambulance containing Claude’s body was driving off and Freda became hysterical and subsequently suffered a complete nervous breakdown.
An autopsy showed Clause had been killed by the impact of the van but that he was suffering from an undiagnosed heart condition, which meant that there was a risk (about 30%) that he could have suffered a fatal heart attack at any time in the future.

The European Convention on Human Rights (‘the Convention’) was drafted to protect European Citizens from totalitarianism. The Convention was intended to protect against the dangers of fascism and communism. For this reason the Convention affords political rights.
Housing lawyers and Judges in housing cases are concerned with economic and social rights. For this reason the Convention is of no importance in housing disputes.
Discuss by reference to relevant case law
Whether the above statement is correct and
Whether the Human Rights Act 1998 makes any difference to how important the Convention is to housing lawyers.
