PM’s “misleading and dangerous” attack on lawyers undermines the rule of law
“Anyone at risk of such a life-changing order has a right to challenge its legality with the assistance of a lawyer, who has a duty to advise their client on their rights."
“Attacks like this, from the highest politician in the land, undermine the rule of law and can have real-life consequences.
“Britain's standing internationally is underpinned by our reputation for democracy, fair play and the independence of our legal system.
“We should all be proud that we live in a country where legal rights cannot be overridden without due process, and that we have legal professionals who serve the rule of law and keep the government accountable."
