Courts getting more involved in politics is a “detriment”, Kwarteng said, “not only to politics, but also to the courts”.

“I think that they are impartial, but I’m saying that many people, many Leave voters, many people up and down the country, are beginning to question the partiality of the judges,” he added. “That’s just a fact.”

Meanwhile, Nigel Farage used his appearance on the same show to defend his claim that the Scottish court ruling “smells of judicial interference”.

The Brexit Party leader told Neil: “We don’t have a written constitution, we have no precedent, there’s nothing by which judges could actually refer back to to make these rules, but if the High Court in London says it is okay and the Court of Session says it’s not okay, look, it’s a mess.”

He added: “I don’t accept that the establishment of this country is independent.

“It is Remain almost to the last man and woman, that is where we are.

“We see this right through government, right through the judiciary.”
