The UK will come to regret the day they adopted an independent Supreme Court.

What, over a queen?

"Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony."

I rest my case. (Never mind the mild non-sequiturical quote above - you get the idea.)

Very funny scene from Holy Grail.

My point was, there were no legal verdicts in the UK that were not ULTIMATELY subject to either the monarchy or, later, the House of Lords.

That a court in Scotland has issued a ruling based on their beliefs about Boris Johnson’s MOTIVES, rather than his derivative authority as a Minister of the Crown - well, we here in America know all too well where that goes.
