1. I've previously argued - at @LordsEUCom, @Europarl_EN & via @ConversationUK - that continued uncertainty re #citizensrights may constitute violation of Art 8 ECHR:…… @BRinEUROPE @NewEuropeans @HaringeyLibDems
2. ECtHR has found that where uncertainty & precariousness of individual’s situation affects network of his or her personal, social & economic relations, there can be an infringement of Art 8. A situation of insecurity should in any case be short-lived. @BRinEUROPE @NewEuropeans
3. I now want to take this a bit further & suggest that continued precariousness sh perhaps be examined in context of 'hostile environment' vis-a-vis immigrants, e.g. re immigration exception in Data Proetction, bank accounts checks, surprise raids etc @NewEuropeans @libertyhq

The Tory #Brextremist attack on the Civil Service parallels Trump's attack on the FBI. It comes after the Tory & press attack on judicial oversight of government in the Article 50 case, and in a context dominated by right-wing press disinformation.

What we appear to be witnessing is a concerted attack to undermine the institutions and practices that underpin democracy. Democracy relies on a basic degree of truthfulness, without it there can be no meaningful debate. The Right is relentlessly attacking truth.

The Tory reaction to the Article 50 court case shows that they have no respect for legal checks on government power. Doubtless the same dislike of the Rule of Law over government accounts for their loathing of the ECJ and #ECHR.
