Lord Wolfson of Tredegar has resigned from his post as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Justice at the Ministry of Justice. I append below his resignation letter which, I think, well sets out the opinion and feelings of a thoughtful and well educated person in the legal profession. I do not for one moment suppose that it will influence Boris Johnson in the slightest who will dismiss it and him as “wet”. But for more thoughtful people it illustrates the ever widening gap between this Government and common decency.

Where is it ?
A reminder from John Ruskin, . . .
“There is no wealth but life. Life, including all its powers of love, of joy, and of admiration. That country is the richest which nourishes the greatest numbers of noble and happy human beings; that man is richest, who, having perfected the functions of his own life to the utmost, has also the widest helpful influence, both personal, and by means of his possessions, over the lives of others.”
From “Unto this Last”, 1860.
