The UK's most senior judge said it was "unfortunate" that Home Secretary Theresa May had attacked judges when discussing human rights and deportation.
But Lord Neuberger, President of the Supreme Court, said he would not get into a "slanging" match with Mrs May, though he did say he thought "attacking judges" was not a sensible way for politicians to proceed. Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Law in Action programme he said:
"It is unfortunate that the Home Secretary has acted and spoken as she has done."
