Following the recent High Court ruling that parliament's approval is needed to trigger Article 50, there has been a backlash in some quarters of the media against the three High Court judges involved in the case. 

Lord Chancellor Liz Truss remained silent in the immediate aftermath of the public attacks on the judges and was condemned for doing so.

Should she have reacted differently? 

Although she cannot undo what has been done, many feel there should have been a quicker and more robust response in defence of the judiciary. As shown by the ensuing reactions to her response to the situation, silence can be very damning.
