Judge reminds Gordo he’s not above the law
! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.
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.
