David Neuberger, the President of the Supreme Court, has slammed press coverage of Brexit and claimed that meddling judges “were certainly not well treated”.
The judge, whose mad decision on the Gina Miller case was slammed by dissenting judges, claimed that “some of what was said was undermining the rule of law”.
Neuberger was a subject of significant controversy prior to the Supreme Court case following revelations that his wife was a politically active Remainer who has attacked the Brexit referendum as “mad and bad” and referred to it as “just a protest vote”, casting doubts over his impartiality.
But rather than remain quiet after throwing a spanner into the works, he’s come out swinging. “The press and the media generally have a positive duty to keep an eye on things. But I think with that power comes the degree of responsibility”. In Neuberger’s mad world, that responsibility seemingly does not involve holding powerful unelected agents in the judiciary to account.
