Judge reminds Gordo he’s not above the law

The High Court judge hearing Stuart Wheeler’s legal challenge to the British government’s refusal to hold the promised referendum on the EU not-a-constitution has written to the Treasury’s lawyers asking them to delay ratification of the not-a-constitution until after he has given his judgement.

This is a long overdue slapping down for El Gordo who clearly thinks he’s above the law but it’s a shame the judge didn’t go further and summon the Treasury’s lawyers to explain why both the Commons and the Lords continued to debate and vote on a matter that was sub judice.

I hope the judge is pissed off enough to drag this out for as long as possible or, even better, find in favour of Stuart Wheeler.
