Iain Duncan Smith has backed Theresa May’s attack on judges who she blames for "subverting" British democracy by ignoring new rules aimed at deporting more foreign criminals.
The Work and Pensions Secretary told The Andrew Marr Show: “The point she is making, I think, is generally supported by pretty much anyone in Parliament who has any common sense.
"Over a period of time, judges seem to have moved across to the idea that somehow this right to have a family life trumps all other rights…
“Parliament [wants to] know that if a criminal committed a crime, they [judges] should be in a much stronger position to extradite them and kick them out if they came from overseas.”
