The vicious assault on UK judges by the Brexit press is a threat to democracy. 

The Brexit-supporting press has mounted a vicious assault on the three high court judges who ruled in the article 50 case and it has undermined our constitution in the process. The government appears to be fuelling this attack. Sajid Javid, the local government secretary, described the judges as seeking to “thwart the will of the people”.

The judiciary is a pillar of our constitution. Allow faith in the judges to be eroded and that pillar is eroded at a huge cost to our freedoms.
