Varadkar Calls on Attorney General & Lord Chancellor to Consider Their Oaths of Office

Tánaiste Leo Varadkar tells Newstalk Breakfast it was an…

“… extraordinary statement from a Cabinet member in a respected liberal democracy. You either adhere to the rule of law or you don’t and you either respect international treaties or you don’t. “There is no middle way. To me, Britain is a country that has always been an honourable country. It is inhabited by very honest people, it is the country of the Magna Carta, of the rule of law, of Parliamentary democracy. It is not a rogue state and to behave in this way is pretty extraordinary… Both the Attorney General in the UK and the Lord Chancellor have professional reputations. They take a particular oath of office and they need to consider that.”
