LETTER: Brexit judges were just doing their job

The House of Lords may well be long overdue for reform, but I wish to point out to A. Warner (Your Letters March 9) that by proposing amendments to the Government’s policy on Brexit, it is actually carrying out its constitutional function.

The “Leave” campaigners appear desperate to suppress any further discussion of Brexit, and are even prepared to attack our High Court and Supreme Court judges who were also simply doing their job.

Freedom of speech and the rule of law are fundamental to our democracy, and must be guarded at all costs.
