It is more in sorrow than anger that I review the events of the last few days.
And if you want sorrow rather than anger done beautifully, then watch this wonderful piece of James O’Brien’s LBC show. He patiently asks why the caller asked for British law administered in Britain by British judges but is now angry about British law administered in Britain by British judges.
It’s a fair point.
Meanwhile, Gina Miller, who led the Article 50 legal bid to the High Court, has received “rape and death threats”.
The Daily Mail has led anger about the decision.
There is still a good chance that the Supreme Court may overturn the High Court ruling. So I hope the small number of people who are angry calm down a bit. Otherwise, the country could be on a path to self-destruction.
The whole referendum “leave” campaign was about “taking back control”. Well, now we have control. We have judges defending the age-old British principle that Parliament alone can make and repeal the laws of this country.
It’s not exactly a revolutionary notion.
