Ukip leadership candidate Suzanne Evans has been accused of advocating “fascism” after she called for judges to be subject to “democratic control”.
Evans this morning attacked the three High Court judges who ruled parliament must be given a vote on the triggering of Article 50 – the formal process that will allow the UK to leave the EU.
The majority of MPs having backed the ‘Remain’ campaign. But the Commons and Lords are expected to allow Theresa May to take the UK out of the EU in accordance with the referendum result.
However Evans accused the High Court of having “overridden the will of the British people” by ruling there must be a vote in parliament.
“I think there is a debate to be had about whether or not judges should be subject to some kind of democratic control,” she told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.
