Instead of deflecting and ducking the Justice Secretary should accept that she failed her first test in the job and apologise – Richard Burgon

Richard
Burgon MP, Labour’s Shadow Justice Secretary,
responding to recent comments from Lords Neuberger and Thomas before the
Lords Constitution Committee, said:

“Liz
Truss encouraged the judiciary to speak out and now two of them have – both to
criticise her failure to defend the job they do. Instead of deflecting and
ducking, the Justice Secretary should accept that she failed her first test in
the job and apologise.”
