Brexit, Trump, The People And Their Judges

It may, therefore, come as no surprise that the High Court’s ruling on Article 50 has stimulated debate on where sovereignty and power really lie. Is it with the people, the Government, Parliament or the judiciary? It is well worth asking, as the answer reveals much about how our political system functions. The shame of it is that newspaper editors, and even some politicians, have used the judgment to paint the judiciary as the pantomime villain, rather than as an opportunity to debate the checks and balances inherent in the British political system.
