The Supreme Court

I should feel more pleased than in practice I am at the clarity, authority and unanimity of the Supreme Court’s admirably lucid judgment, which may restore some degree of judicial authority to public life, including the re-assembly of parliament. But it also demonstrates very clearly how quickly public political values can be, and have been, corroded by a government determined to sweep due processes to one side, firing anyone remotely hostile or independent minded in the civil service, wilfully misunderstanding and misinterpreting the historic role of the civil service. It was a small thing, but indicative, that a spokesperson in 10, Downing Street spoke yesterday of remainiac Scottish judges, as if the judiciary is somehow bent. Unfortunately, it is 10, Downing Street which has been bent, corrupted by the folly of power.
