1. “The rule of law is a political ideal which a legal system may lack or may possess to a greater or lesser degree. That much is common ground. It is also to be insisted that the rule of law is just one of the virtues which a legal system may possess and by which it is to be judged. It is not to be confused with democracy, justice, equality (before the law or otherwise), human rights of any kind or respect for persons or for the dignity of man” (J Raz, “The rule of law and its virtue” (1977) 93 Law Quarterly Review 195 at 196).

Critically discuss the above statement, drawing from relevant aspects of the UK Constitution.
