THE PM appointed his new chief legal adviser yesterday days after she said trespassing judges must stop interfering in politics.

Attorney General Suella Braverman, 39, wants Parliament to take back power from the courts.

New Attorney General Suella Braveman has vowed to stop ‘trespassing’ judges interfering in politics

In a blog last month she said the delicate relationship between law and politics is off-balance, adding: I dont challenge the quality of our judges but I do question their trespass into inherently political terrain for which a legal answer is wholly insufficient.

Such political disputes can only be resolved through a democratic, consultative process so that public confidence is sustained.

Ex-Brexit Minister Mrs Braverman will play a key role as Boris Johnson sets up a commission to examine the relationship between the courts and government.

She said she was honoured to take the post and praised predecessor Geoffrey Cox QC.

But Lib Dem Daisy Cooper blasted the appointment as part of PM chief adviser Dominic Cummings assault on the rule of law.

She added: Like Johnson and Cummings, Suella Braverman clearly believes Tory ministers should be above the law. That makes her unfit to be Attorney General.

Our party will not allow this dangerous, authoritarian Conservative government to undermine the rule of law and erode individual rights and freedoms.
