Judge reminds Gordo he’s not above the law

! This post was written some time ago. I don't delete old posts but bear in mind that a lot can change in a year or more, including my opinions (and the amount of naughty words I use).

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.
