UK Prime Minister wants accountability for rogue judges
Top judges should be subjected to U.S.-style "accountability" Boris Johnson suggested following the decision by the U.K.'s Supreme Court to quash his decision to suspend parliament.The court ruling appears to be a violation of the British system of parliamentary supremacy. Since the UK has no formal constitution, it is also more than passing strange that the court would say a move by the leader of Parliament is unconstitutional.
The U.K.'s highest court ruled unanimously on Tuesday that the prime minister's decision to prorogue parliament was "unlawful" leading to MPs being recalled the following day.
In an interview with the Sunday Telegraph, Johnson insisted that he respected the court's judgment "very humbly and very sincerely." But he suggested there would be "consequences" following the judges decision to intervene in such a highly political question.
