In the wake of the decision in the parliamentary prorogation case Miller (No.2), the question of the politics of the judiciary has been thrust into the public eye. Was it "a constitutional coup" as some have claimed?
The Government has promised to "update the Human Rights Act" and review the "relationship between the government, parliament and the courts".
Will this limit the power of the judiciary to do justice? Do British judges have too much "power" and are they over-politicised?
