THE UK is at risk of a “dictatorship” after Brexit, a former Supreme Court president has sensationally warned.
In a bombshell Brexit intervention, Lord Neuberger claimed the Government’s current strategy risked driving Britain down “a very slippery slope” towards “tyranny”.
In an online meeting of lawyers, Lord Neuberger blasted Boris Johnson’s controversial Internal Market Bill saying: “Once you deprive people of the right to go to court to challenge the government, you are in a dictatorship, you are in a tyranny.”
But a government spokesperson previously dismissed such criticism, saying: “We need a legal safety net to protect the integrity of the UK’s internal market, ensure ministers can always deliver on their obligations to Northern Ireland and protect the gains from the peace process.”
