These sources are adapted from newspaper articles following the High Court decision
that the executive does not have the power to trigger Article 50 (the process of leaving
the European Union) without the agreement of Parliament.

Using the source, evaluate the view that judges should not exercise control over the power of government. Can't find the key point for and against example any help is appreciated

Possibly mention the fact that judges are unelected (and instead appointed within the rather exclusive board of high-ranking experts) - therefore they have no mandate from the public on their side to control the power of government.

But you'd have to point out that checks and balances on government power are vital for any democratic society. The role of judges is to ensure the government abides by the law - they only apply to laws set out by Parliament so to some extent they should 'monitor' (I wouldn't go as far as saying 'control) the power of government.

Just remember that with source questions, you ought to be referencing the source every few sentences. It's not there as an optional resource - you get marked on your analysis and application of it.

The Supreme Court having power over the government, such as judicial review, could be a timely process and therefore limit ministers ability to carry out manifesto plans
