Tory attacks are designed to allow govt to act with impunity

Responding to reports that Dominic Cummings has attacked judicial review as a “farce”, Acting Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said: “Dominic Cummings seems to believe that he, Boris Johnson and Tory Ministers are above the law. They are not.

Home Affairs spokesperson Ed Davey

“When Ministers act outside of the bounds of the law, people must be able to hold them to account in the courts.

“These Tory attacks on our courts, judicial review and the Human Rights Act are all designed to weaken ordinary people and enable Ministers to act with impunity. They are the actions of despots, not democrats. 

“The rule of law is fundamental to a functioning democracy, and Liberal Democrats will not stand by and watch as Johnson and Cummings try to undermine it.”
