BORIS JOHNSON MUST APOLOGISE FOR ATTACK ON SCOTTISH JUDICIARY

SUGGESTION OF COURT BIAS IS "DICTATORIAL AND DANGEROUS"
 
Boris Johnson should immediately apologise for attacks by his office on the Scottish judiciary, following today’s ruling by the Court of Session.
 

Number 10 sources reacted to the news by seeking to question the integrity and independence of Scottish judges, suggesting they are politically biased.
 
The SNP has called on the Prime Minister to get a grip over his office, criticising these briefings as “dictatorial and dangerous” - and saying it is "almost as if they’re going out of their way to make the case for independence."
 
Commenting, Tommy Sheppard MP said:
 
“The buck stops with Boris Johnson. It is dictatorial and dangerous for the Prime Minister or his office to be questioning the integrity and independence of the Scottish courts, just because he doesn’t like what they’ve ruled. He should apologise immediately.
 
“Number Ten’s response to the ruling of the Court Session today is absolutely shameful, straight out of the tinpot dictators’ playbook and reveals the utter contempt the Tories’ have for democratic process.
 
“Attempting to shut Scotland up demonstrates the Tories’ complete lack of respect – it's almost as if they’re going out of their way to make the case for independence.
 
“As much as the Prime Minister seeks to lash out and blame anyone but himself, he’s the one who’s been found to have unlawfully suspended parliament – it’s time for MPs to get back to work, holding this government to account.”
