Max Hastings writes in the Daily Mail today with a hatchet job on the Supreme Court.  He considers that it will represent a shift in power to the judiciary.  He finishes.

“The full cost of Blair’s follies will only become apparent in the years ahead.
 The Supreme Court already looks like one of them.”

 Simon Heffer has joined in with a Telegraph comment piece entitled “Supreme Court has far less appeal than the Lords”.  He links the Debbie Purdy case (a decision of the House of Lords) to mission of the Supreme Court to “fulfil its destiny to take over the making of laws from our elected representatives in Parliament – not that it will ever admit to wanting to do that, of course”.  He concludes by saying that “If the Tories win the election, they should abolish this constitutional absurdity”.  Nice to know where he stands.
