Dictator Boris Johnson: He’s already making the hand signals. Next he’ll be designing his own uniform.

A failed former Conservative leader has launched his party’s attack on the rule of law by claiming that judges are corrupt.

Michael Howard said judges sometimes “distort” the law they are interpreting “to reach the result they want to achieve”.

Interviewed by BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, he said: “I think that judges have increasingly substituted their own view of what is right for the view of Parliament and of ministers.”

There is no objective basis for his comments.

I mean, what is he implying? That all the judges in the Supreme Court are Labour supporters? How ridiculous!

The Conservative government wants to end the rule of law in the UK because Boris Johnson was upset by a court decision that his attempt to prorogue Parliament earlier this year was illegal.

The Supreme Court was absolutely right in its decision, which was based on the law of the United Kingdom, and on evidence about Mr Johnson’s attempted prorogation.

But Mr Johnson believes that his Conservative government should be able to do whatever it likes – including breaking the law.

So he needs to undermine the legal framework that protects us all from the dictatorship – because that’s what it is – that he intends to impose.

And that is the reason Lord Howard has attacked the judges of the Supreme Court.

It seems likely that the Johnson government will try to change the way judges are appointed, making them subject to political patronage.

This would be an enormous act of hypocrisy, as Lord Howard’s argument is that judges are already too political.

But Boris Johnson won’t care. With a massive Parliamentary majority, nobody can stop him.

He can do whatever he fancies.

He just wants to make sure enough voters are persuaded by paper-thin arguments like those of Lord Howard.

And he won’t have any trouble with it, will he?

After all, he went into the general election on a similarly flimsy claim – and look how many voters were duped into supporting that!
