    It's all very well to say "she should air her views after the fact , not before" but in fact such a restriction of her liberty - which you enjoy - would effectively gag her... How can she know in advance what issue may come before the court in which His Lordship sits? As she cannot be 100% sure what issues might come to the court you are effectively saying she shouldn't speak about any of her views; a significant infringement of the freedoms you yourself enjoy.

    I've thought Snapper is Sara.

    So many princesses here, I feel privileged and Robin Hood-alike at the same time.

    Judges aren't vacuous machines without personal opinions, you should trust that a supreme court judge in the UK is good enough at their job to not let those views influence the application of the law.

    The new strategy of the government is to claim that Article 50 is reversible, and therefore parliament could vote to revoke it. Thereby the royal prerogative is not stripping anyone of their rights.

    It doesn't make much sense to me, but the law can be strange.

It is getting ridiculous to suggest that a married judge allows his Wife to influence his legal decisions.

    As it is I glanced briefly at some article online the other day saying that the Government will use a different argument in the appeal. I didn't have time to read it all let alone try to understand it but something along the lines of Brexit not effecting the rights of people.

    I find it offensive you took the remark above seriously. It was a pun. With a smiley.

    Of course people are judged all the time, but you blonde? I thought you are redhead. :sad:

    Supreme Court's most senior judge urged to stand down from Article 50 legal hearing over wife's anti-Brexit Twitter posts

    Robert Mendick, chief reporter Laura Hughes, political correspondent
    18 NOVEMBER 2016 • 10:00PM
    The Supreme Court’s most senior judge has been urged to stand down from a crucial legal hearing on Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union after it emerged his wife had posted a series of anti-Brexit tweets.

    Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury, the president of the Supreme Court, was accused by pro-Brexit Conservative MPs of being compromised by his wife’s views.

    This case is about a point of law and Lady Neuberger’s views are nothing to do with it.
    Supreme Court source
    The Supreme Court’s code of conduct warns justices to be aware “that political activity” of a close relative could raise concerns over impartiality although a senior source said the judge was “absolutely confident” there had been no breach in this case.
    YEA RIGHT . B/S

    The source added: “This case is about a point of law and Lady Neuberger’s views are nothing to do with it.

    'Mad and bad': Lady Neuberger denounced the EU referendum
    The government has become embroiled in a row with the judiciary after High Court judges ruled that there should be a parliamentary voter before Article 50 is triggered.

    Tory MPs, including Communities Secretary Sajid Javid, criticised the judges. Mr Javid said the ruling was an attempt to "block the will of the people".

    Liz Truss, the Justice Secretary, then spoke out attacking the judges' critics after a statement by the Bar Council, which represents 15,000 barristers, urged her to condemn "serious and unjustified attacks on the judiciary".

    In a series of tweets, Lady Neuberger, under her maiden name Angela Holdsworth, denounced the referendum as “mad and bad” and dismissed Ukip and Brexit as “just a protest vote”
