What these judges have very clearly achieved is the politicisation of the judiciary. This will mean that the higher levels of the judiciary will inevitably follow the American pattern and become political appointments. This is as sure as night follows day. I am not convinced this is such a good idea.The Supreme Court finding has put a distinct twist on the 1688 bill of rights and smacks of judicial interference into the political realm.
This will have consequences yet to be seen. I suspect after the next general election the judicial interference in politics will be stopped in it's tracks by legislation clearly ringfencing what the judges can and cannot do. Similarly the actions of the speaker will be curtailed in such a way that legislation can only be passed with the consent of the ruling party. Parliament already has remedies it is called a general election. As it stands Parliament is in opposition to the people.
This can only be a shortlived affair before the people assert their rights.
